Hawks Headlines: Blackhawks Make Changes to Hockey Ops



    In this Friday edition of Hawks Headlines, we take a look at some front office changes for the Chicago Blackhawks, a statistical analysis of Corey Crawford, and a popular Boston Bruins player that is backing a Brinks truck up to the bank.

    -We start out with Chris Block, whose analysis of the Blackhawks’ farm system is always top notch. In this article, he discusses Wade Brookbank’s retirement and hire by the Hawks as a pro scout, among other changes in the front office. [Third Man In]

    -Corey Crawford gets a lot of flak from some Blackhawks fans, but if you’re a fan of the goaltender, then you have some statistical backing you should read about. Good stuff here. [Committed Indian]

    -Tracey Myers continues her profiles of the Blackhawks with “Showtime”, as Patrick Kane goes under the microscope. [CSN Chicago]

    -Based on a set of five characteristics (a franchise center, a strong top four defensive core, a playoff-tested goalie, a skilled fourth line, and entry-level contributors), how do teams in the Central Division stack up to the Los Angeles Kings? Craig Custance weighs in. [ESPN Chicago]

    -Are you looking for a ranking of the Blackhawks based on trade value or fantasy prowess? Then you shouldn’t look at this list of “irrational” rankings of the players on the team. [Second City Hockey]

    -David Krejci is going to have a lot of friends and family members calling him the next few days, after he signed a massive extension to remain with the Boston Bruins. [CBS Sports]

    -Finally, an interesting story from Greg Wyshynski, as he talks about the ECHL’s answer to the Green Bay Packers, with the Elmira Jackals becoming a community-owned team. [Puck Daddy]
