Zach Martin joins Matt and Mike for some hockey talk on The Blackhawks.

  • We go over the Status of the team. Hawks have put up some big numbers recently but can't string wins together for a winning streak.
  • The Future of Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. What contracts would look good for these 2. Would it be better for Tazer to retire?
  • Should it be a full tear down or keep the core. We make a case for both.
  • Is Derek King the right coach for a rebuild? The players seem to respect him but is he the guy to coach this team through a rebuild and to contention hockey.
  • Blackhawks bring back Norm Maciver. He was working with the Kracken but has come back to The Blackhawks in the associate GM role. This is a good move because it helps Davidson see some different perspectives. Davidson is a numbers guy and Maciver is a hockey mind.
