Stan Bowman 5
Shortly after trading away Brian Campbell and Troy Brouwer, Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman expressed disappointment about the eight or nine players on the roster that had major roles in winning the Stanley Cup in 2010.
Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman has always been able to admit when he has made a mistake. After Wednesday night’s loss to the Stars he has come to realization that he made some big ones last off-season.
Retired defenseman Chris Chelios will be honored by the Blackhawks tonight before they take the ice against the Red Wings, another of his former teams. In addition to honoring Chelios, the Blackhawks will add him to their third line for the foreseeable future.
The Blackhawks again made off-season headlines by cutting another hero from their Stanley Cup-winning team Monday by parting ways with goalie Antti Niemi in favor of former Dallas Star Marty Turco. Fans were outraged by the move, which saved the Hawks roughly $1 million in cap space and brought them an established premier netminder.
