Blackhawks start a road trip that will make or break their season by blowing a 2-0 lead to the Jets.

I'm fully prepared for an annoying 3-2 or 2-3 road trip that convinces them to not sell at the deadline.

Honestly, just how bad the Red Wings are is probably one of the most undercovered stories of this season.

Consider how bad the Kings are. Second worst in the league. 19-33-5. Clearly selling like mad and are tanking and have given up on the season.

The Red Wings are 11 points behind them!

Best case scenario is it's really minor and since the Coyotes are doing a back to back, he's back tomorrow... to face the Leafs slaughter.

But jesus christ when they say "setback" it's like, did he fucking stub his toe or is this going to be another month?

Edit: okay I glazed over the use of "injury" as in, a fresh injury replacing the old one. This is just brutal.

More importantly is the sign that they actually realize they need to rebuild. Technically they're only a few games out of the playoffs. Takes some balls to finally admit that the writing is on the wall.

This Addison guy looks like he gets quite a few points. Not sure how that will translate to the Minnesota sinkhole, but they don't have much after Dumba (who has slipped) and Spurgeon. Suter gets points because of crazy ice time, but a pure offensive defenseman he is not.

Injury I think. He came back this year, but went poof. My guess is when the injury happened last year, the new GM got cold feet and broke the bank to keep Spurgeon as a safety net. He and Suter have held together what is a really underwhelming defensive group over the years, despite what was normally a strength of the team...supposedly.

Brodin and Dumba were supposed to be the guys to take over. Instead, they and others keep being trade bait.

There are rumblings of another Leafs trade coming up, potentially bigger than the last one.

This is on the heels of a burner account named "Mike Litorus" being the one to break the Moore trade and mentioning that there was a players only meeting to deal with toxicity in the locker room. Word on the street is that it might be Kapanen with that toxicity so let's see if he's on his way out.

Friedman mentioned that the burner account is probably legit and most likely someone close to a player.

See a Leafs OTL, curse another bad Campbell performance, then look back a few minutes later and see a Leafs win. I mean... he still let in 2 goals and I'd like to have seen 0 or 1 vs. the Coyotes but I'll take the W.

And Kapanen got the OT winner so hey.... trade value rising???

Also excited about Mantha coming back from nearly 2 months off and returning in good form w/ 2 assists. The Wings still lost so all is right with the world, but yeah.

Scary moment in ducks/blues, jay bouwmeester collapsed with no warning on the blues bench after a shift. Seeming alert on his way to the hospital, but the teams agreed to postpone the rest of the game. Sounds like the medical staff were lights out in their response.

Boudreau's job this year was to tank. He didn't do a very good job. Firing well deserved.

Now here's hoping Kassian also gets what he deserves (suspended for the remainder of the season)

It was a pretty half assed kick. I believe what he said. He was pushing off.

That said it was a freaking moronic thing to do and 100% merits a suspension and I think they probably should have gone at least 10.

Also Chara deserved a game or 2. He could have killed Galagher

NHL head offices last offseason:

"We need an opponent for Colorado in a showcase outdoor game that will be broadcast nationally"

"How about a team that isn't a division rival, hasn't met them in the playoffs in recent memory, finished second-to-last in the league last year, clearly won't be any better this coming season and will almost certainly be intentionally tanking?"

"Brilliant!"
