Preview written by Gina
It was a great season! We won the Stanley Cup for the first time in 49 years, and it was great time for the entire city, really the whole state of Illinois. The governor named June 11, 2010 Blackhawks Day for the state.
There were no major injuries or trades during the season, it was just winning and keep moving on. It was awesome. Lets hope that this coming season will be just as exciting as the past championship season…
General Manager- Stan Bowman… sometimes I have no idea why he does the things he does, but I guess he knows what he’s doing
Coach – Joel Quenneville
Captain – Jonathan Toews
Player everyone should love – Nikalas Hjalmarsson, because he gave us a little bit of a scare with signing that offer sheet with San Jose, but he’s adorable and couldn’t leave. He’s an amazing shot blocker, awesome defenseman, has a sweet name, and has the best commercials… he makes me want to go to IKEA and eat a MEETBALL!
Player we don’t love – the team is so turned around and all that I have no idea who not to love…
Who they got - Marty Turco, Bryan Bickell, Jake Dowell, Viktor Stalberg, John Scott and some other prospects Jack Skille, Igor Makarov
Who they lost – practically the entire team! This off-season was brutal…Dustin Byfulgien, Ben Eager, John Madden, Colin Fraser, Kris Versteeg, Brent Sopel, Antti Niemi, Andrew Ladd, Adam Burish, Nick Boyton
And probably Cristobal Huet, even though it’s not official yet…
Located At - United Center (UC) 1901 W. Madison St., Chicago
Hotness Level - 10
I think its still pretty high up there, I mean we still have all the hotties, but I think one person brought down the level one notch: Igor Makarov. He notched down the team from the 11 it was last year.
