Caught this on Facebook from a friend who's a Bruins fan.
Thought it was a nice gesture by the organization, certainly something deserving of respect.

Would be cooler at that end "......... But we still won"

But then you see Patrick Kane walking around with a haircut like a chemo patient and you realize what a group of dirtbags they really are.

Nice move by the owners/managent/pr people.
I guess they were surprised by how nice people can be in towns where they don't yell, "Detroit sucks" every chance they get.
Maybe Hawks fans should take notes.
Money on the board! Current total: $7
$1 for each goal scored by a current Wing after whom I've named a hamster. +$5 if one scores a hat trick.
+$1 if a GWG. +$5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.+$50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.
$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.
The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)
Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik
Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert
Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan
Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd
Jordin Damien Gustav James

Chicago's players and (much of) their fanbase may be classless individuals, but that is different than the front office. This was an excellent gesture by them at a time when they didn't have to do anything at all. I doubt the Arizona Diamondbacks did anything like this when they delivered an analogous kick to the stomach to the Yankees in 2001.
The Hawks organization is leaps and bounds from where they were 10 years ago, and that's good for the game. For all the damage of the lockout(s), terrible TV contracts, etc., don't you look at the health of the teams and fanbases in MAJOR U.S. cities (LA, Chicago, NY, Philadelphia) that weren't always in a great position, and feel pretty good about the league?

This is just to make up for those Blackhawks t-shirts that said "Chicago Stronger".

Most nights, my posts are brought to you by some sort of IPA and a heaping dose of sarcasm.

I really don't want to admit it and absolutely hate what I am going to type now, but
this gesture is pure class, sad but true.
Crawford on the other hand, never liked the guy he will end up like Mike Smith a one year wonder and an arrogant full of himself millionaire.

Letting go of Scotty Bowman = dumbest thing a hockey team can do.
If you are implying the Wings "let go" of Scotty Bowman, you have it wrong. Scotty went to Chicago to have the opportunity to work with his son. As a parent, I can tell you that I love Scotty even more for his understanding of what is important in life.
