Your 2009-2010 Chicago Blackhawks

The opening roster for the Blackhawks has officially been set.  Somehow, Radek Smolenak made such an amazing impression in two games that the Hawks couldn’t start the season without him.  Another peculiar development was the Hawks decision to carry three goalies to start the season.  That certainly gives off an odor they don’t feel that great about Niemi or Crawford.  

All this being said, the roster will probably look a bit different in just a couple months so this is nothing to get too upset or worked up over.

    my understanding is that teams starting the season in Europe are allowed to carry an extra goalie without any salary cap impact until they return. Note that Florida, St Louis, and Detroit all still have 3 netminders on the roster.
