PLAYERS: Ray Emery
TEAMS: Chicago Blackhawks
Follow me @jaeckel The Hawks, as reported by Eklund, are close on a 3 year, rumored to be $4.5 million deal with Ray Emery—to remain in Chicago. I'm told the Hawk strategy going in to unrestricted free agency is to look for Michal Rozsival-like veteran players to approach them (perhaps including Rozsival) on potentially cap friendly short-term deals—with the hopes of winning a Cup or a...

A Stanley Cup replica made entirely out of meat? Sure, why not? (pics)

On Tuesday, Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville stopped by morning talk show “Windy City Live.” Coach Q brought along Lord Stanley’s Cup for his appearance but waiting for him was a trophy with a much “meatier” pedigree, if you will.

Chicago Blackhawks ink Bryan Bickell to 4-year deal

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...

The outstanding Finnish call of Blackhawks-Bruins Game 6

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...

The Future's bright for Revitalized Blackhawks

Goaltending Options Shrinking For The Flyers

from Frank Seravalli of hte Phiadelphia Daily News, There's a very good chance Ray Emery, who many believe is the Flyers' No. 1 choice to work in tandem with Steve Mason next season, will soon re-sign with the Cup-champion Blackhawks to avoid hitting the market. Emery's agent, J.P. Barry, met with the Blackhawks on Sunday night after the draft to discuss Emery...

John Jaeckel: Big Day/What It Means

Follow me @jaeckel June was an eventful month for the Hawks. And the last day of the month was especially eventful for Stan Bowman and the front office. In a basic sense, the Hawks ensured that their best true power forward will be around for another four years, likely made the room to give Nick Leddy's prodigious talent the time needed to develop in a Hawk sweater, and...

Guest Writer: A Banner Year 2

By Brian Smith Since we last met… The Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup, Free Agent Frenzy began 48-hours later when teams were allowed to use their bailout, um, er… ahem! Compliance Buyout option, and the 2013 Entry Draft went down… with a couple of surprises along the way! So, what??? Well, Jonathan Bernier is headed to the Toronto Maple Leafs. And...
