The 144th Kentucky Derby is Saturday, and every year it is filled with big hats, mint julep and interesting horse names. The last, of course, why we are here.
Calling a horse for America’s greatest race or even a difficult task. But we have a solution: name the horse with the theme of the Chicago Blackhawks. We know that the former Blackhawks player and current television analyst Eddie Olczyk would agree that this is a good idea.
The publication time for the big event is 5:46. Saturday. The race will be broadcast on NBC television with coverage starting at 1:30 pm, and also with an earlier cover (from 11:00 to 13:30) by NBCSN. Online streaming is available through NBC Sports Live Extra.
Of course, it is obvious that the aliases of the players are selected from: Stosh, The Golden Jet, Tazer, Kaner and Showtime, Sharpy, Mr. Goalie and Cousin Vinnie, to name a few. And if puns are the name of the game, that is Mare-ian Horsa.
The Buffalo Sabers were the main winners of the NHL lottery lottery in 2018, putting the top overall selection for the project this year. The lottery project, which is defined by some very scientific ping-pong balls, eventually decided that the Sabers would choose first. But this is almost not so.
The Chicago Blackhawks were almost the owners of the prestigious favorite, which, with the exception of any surprises, will be used by the talented defender Rasmus Dakhlin.
Consider this personnel analysis, which shows how the Blackhawks’ ball was robbed by the Saibers ball.
If Blackhawks ’11 ball appeared, they would have their first best choice, since in 2007 they chose Patrick Kane.
Chicago is approaching the victory in the lottery, playing up to its season. The Blackhawks had 2017-18 to forget where almost everything that could go wrong ended up with what happened wrong. The narrowly absent main choice is only an insult to injury, but the team should feel better knowing that they still have the eighth overall choice, and another choice from the first round of Nashville Predators.
Ironically, Saber is now chosen first the next year in which they tried to make their best foot forward. This is compared to 2015, when they tried to tank for the first choice, but eventually got a second general choice.
For the first time since the 2007-2008 season, The Chicago Blackhawks were eliminated from the playoffs by publishing a shadow record of 33-39-10, Blackhawks never received the ball and were not the same team after Goalie Corey Crawford got hurt. The Blackhawks lottery remained fairly stable, putting them in eighth place. This will be the first time that the Blackhawks will be selected in the Top 10 since their release in 2007 in the NHL, where they selected right-winger Patrick Kane with the number one choice. They also have rights to the first round of Nashville later in the round, thanks to the trade of Ryan Hartman, which they did earlier this season. So, the question is, what can Blackhawks do with this number eight?
First, we need to start by looking at the current Blackhawks and their situation with the free agent in the offseason. Patrick Sharpe is an unrestricted free agent, but he already announced his departure in early April, before the season ended. Then the Hawks have three other list forwarders that are limited to free agents, that is, they can match any deals that they can offer. These forwards: 22-year-old Anthony Ducler, 25-year-old Thomas Jurko and 24-year-old Vinny Chinostroz. Continue reading “Blackhawks Morning Links: Rockford Plays Manitoba Next”
When we start leaving everything that went wrong during the Chicago Blackhawks 2017-18 season, it’s time to explore some of the gray areas between up and down that formed this hockey campaign.
It’s easy to replace a fan of fans, but it was a task that Murphy saddled when he joined the Blackhawks after the trade in 2017, which sent Niklas Hjalmarsson to the Arizona Coyotes.
And the early profit from the trade was less than expected, and Murphy scraped the trainer Joel Quenneville several times in the first few months of the season.
But after this rough start, Murphy seemed to find his footing on the blue line of Chicago and eventually got some of the best indicators of possession of the whole body of Blackhawks.
Murphy’s name was also not on the Blackhawks list, which appeared in the top 25 Natural Stat Trick to receive the high dangers within 60 minutes mentioned in this article. The Murphy index of 11.16 was only surpassed in Chicago by small samples from Hillman and Kempny.
