The Mailbag: So How About That Cubs Trade?

samardzijatrade

Welcome to The Chicago Homer’s Mailbag. It runs once a week unless it doesn’t, and in it I answer questions from readers via Twitter or email. The questions can be about any damn thing you please, and there likely isn’t a question I won’t answer. There may be questions I can’t answer, but I’ll try.

If you’d like to submit a question for the next edition of the mailbag it’s pretty simple. Either ask the question on Twitter using the #AskTCH hashtag — as long as you use the hashtag I will see it — or send an email to TCHMailbag@gmail.com.

And now that you know how to do it, let’s get to the this week’s questions.

The NHL Fined Joel Quenneville $25,000 For His Crotch Grab

qcrotchgrab

How much does grabbing your crotch while yelling at NHL officials during overtime of a playoff game cost you? Well, nothing if you’re a fan. Once you’ve paid for your ticket you are legally allowed to grab any part of your own body that you like, while saying any damn thing you want to.

Seriously, it’s in the Constitution. Look it up.

If you’re a coach, however, it’ll cost you $25,000.

Please Don’t Let This Be The End Of The Season

Just in case losing Patrick Kane for the rest of the regular season wasn’t enough, this happened to Jonathan Toews on Sunday night.

He immediately left the ice and went to the locker room, and he did not return to the game. Afterward Joel Quenneville said he’s day-to-day and “I don’t think it’s serious.”

We can only hope he’s right.

Teuvo Is Coming

Let’s see, the Blackhawks are currently hitting the home stretch of the regular season while locked in a tight divisional battle with both the St. Louis Blues and Colorado Avalanche. Once that’s over the playoffs will begin, and the Hawks will then begin their quest to win a second straight Stanley Cup, and their third in five years.

In other words, there’s a lot to get excited about when it comes to the Blackhawks, yet none of those things excite me as much as what Joel Quenneville said on Mac and Spiegel Tuesday morning.

Teuvo is coming.

Bryan Bickell: The Convenient Scapegoat

Bryan Bickell

Bryan Bickell may be Joel Quenneville’s current scapegoat, but he’s far from the only problem with the Blackhawks right now. Bickell’s biggest mistake seems to be accepting the $16 million contract the Blackhawks offered him in the offseason.

Bickell was benched on Sunday night against Winnipeg, as Quenneville looked to shake things up on a team that’s been coasting a bit too frequently these days, and it paid immediate dividends. The Blackhawks managed to score one whole goal on 35 shots while blowing their 1-0 lead in the third period to lose 3-1!

Problem solved!

The Morning Constitutional: Q Finally Comes To His Senses

Joel Quenneville has heard you,  Hawks fan.

Maybe you didn’t notice it on Wednesday night against the Rangers, but Marcus Kruger got some time as the second-line center with Patrick Kane. Well, on Thursday it was announced that Kruger would be on the second line with Kane again against Montreal on Saturday, as Quenneville said he’s going to get a shot at the job.

And it’s about fucking time, too.
