Some quick hits and then I'll weigh in on the larger picture with the Hawks and what I think is going on.
First, Bryan Bickell.
Although Bickell really does want to stay in Chicago, it appears there is some question in his camp as to what his market value is and therefore what constitutes an actual "hometown discount." Thus, Bickell may well hit the market at the openin...

The Chicago Blackhawks signed Bryan Bickell to a four-year deal reportedly worth $16 million.That's a handsome raise for a guy with just 90 points in 220 regular season games. Apparently Chicago's focused on the nine goals and 17 points he collected in 23 postseason contests. That 18.4 shooting percentage isn't likely to stick around, but he could still be fantasy-relevant...
Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews is on the move.
Don’t worry Chicago hockey fans, he’s not leaving your beloved Windy City — he’s just looking for a new place to call home.
Toews is looking to sell his high-rise condo in Lakeshore East, according to the Chicago Tribune. The report indicates that Toews is under contract to sell his three-bedroom, four-bathroom penthouse for...

Patrick Kane covered his infamous hockey hair on Saturday night with a Parrothead.
The Blackhawks forward appeared on stage with Jimmy Buffett on Saturday night in Chicago with the Stanley Cup in tow. Kane was wearing standard Buffett-attendee apparel: a Hawaiian shirt and Parrothead hat.
Kane walked on stage with the Cup, placed it on stage, awkwardly danced to “Margaritaville”...

Chicago started out hot and never looked back en route to the Stanley Cup. Patrick Kane and company started the season 21-0-3 and cruised to a 36-7-5 finish and the President’s Trophy. Let’s put in our tape of Chelsea Dagger in and hum along as we look back at the champs’ season in fantasy hockey.

One of my favorite themes here at AA in the last year has been unearthing Finnish hockey calls. Why Finnish hockey calls? Because Finland, obviously. And because they're awesome. We've seen a couple throughout the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but this video from Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final may be my favorite foreign language clips in the history of this website. Six...

Any time you hear the words Patrick Kane and beer together, you think “yeah, makes sense,” sounds right. Since winning the Conn Smythe Trophy as the MVP of the 2013 NHL postseason, Kaner has: appeared drunk at the Chicago Blackhawks Stanley Cup celebration in Grant Park, been photographed wearing a unicorn head while out partying in Chicago, and talked about how much he enjoys...
The Toronto Maple Leafs have acquired centre Dave Bolland from the Chicago Blackhawks. In exchange, Chicago will be receiving three draft picks. Less than a week ago, Bolland scored the Cup winning goal in the Blackhawks' miraculous comeback versus the Boston Bruins in the 2013 Stanley Cup Final.The Ontario native had 14 points in 35 games with the Blackhawks last season.Related...
It wouldn't be nice to say, "I told you so," so let's go with, "I'm used to it." After watching or following the draft in some form other than reading the newspaper for over a decade, I've become accustomed to witnessing a couple of shocking trades (Schneider to New Jersey, Bolland to Toronto, Clutterbuck for Niederreiter), some more pedestrian...
