from Steve Rosenbloom of the Chicago Tribune,
I hope Stan Bowman is lying about this. I hope he’s just doing what smart, truth-challenged general managers do.
Because I really don’t want to think that the Blackhawks GM actually believes that “for the most part we know what our roster is going to be with some minor tweaks here and there,’’ as he said Tuesday in advance of Friday’s NHL draft.
I mean, “minor tweaks here and there’’? Excuse me, but when you’re coming off your second straight first-round playoff loss after winning a Stanley Cup with Dale Tallon’s roster, there’s nothing minor.
There’s especially nothing minor about not having a legitimate No. 2 center. Again.
It’s not Patrick Kane, no matter how stridently Bowman defends his misguided stance.
