Duncan Keith may be a Blackhawk, but he's a true hockey player.  He made the wish of a little girl come true.
 

One of my best friends had CP and so this clip has some special meaning to me.  Kudos to Keith for making her day.

Well-deserved.  3 Olympic teams, good NHL career, and all around good guy.


Babcock on using advanced stats

I'll admit that I'm not at all a math or numbers person, but I've done some reading on Corsi and Fenwick.  I've been wondering how much weight stats have in coaching decisions such as ice time and line combos as well as for the GM decisions with drafting and trading.

 

It sounds like Babs has a good handle on using them as a tool in his kit rather than the sole deciding factor, which I see as a good thing.
