Feel free to complain about it.) Prior to Sunday night's game, very few players were in the same stratosphere in terms of minutes played as the Chicago defense. In terms of...

No concern over defensemen playing time

Are you worried that the Blackhawks defensemen might be playing a bit too much?Don't be.Sure, the top four in Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook, Johnny Oduya and Niklas Hjalmarsson are seeing a lot of time. In fact, Duncan Keith played 49:51 in the triple overtime game. But this is actually relatively normal for Joel Quenneville-championship caliber teams.In the 2010 cup run, the top...

Brandon Bollig Won Twitter Last Night With Single, Self-Depricating Tweet

Apparently a question I was asked last night reached as far as the Brandon Bollig residence in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The question was as follows: “Who do you think was more sore after a 3-overtime playoff game? Duncan Keith after skating 49:51 seconds? Or Kimmo Timonen who was forced to sit on an uncomfortable wooden bench for close to five hours? While Bollig didn’t have...

It’s Time For Blackhawks To Realize Kimmo Timonen Can No Longer Play

An iron man by the very definition, defenseman Kimmo Timonen defied all odds this season when he suited up for the Chicago Blackhawks a mere six months after being diagnosed with blood clots in both his lungs and right leg. Many wondered if the 40-year old Finnish native and 16-year NHL vet would ever dress again. Instead, Timonen will be appearing in his ninth consecutive playoff...
