In case you were wondering why John Scott snapped 3 sticks in one period of play last night, we discovered some physical evidence of why this happened:
My goodness, is he using a children’s 35 flex or what? Perhaps someone on the Hawks equipment staff should recommend to Scott he should use a stiffer flex. We all understand it’s optional for Scott to use a stick anyway but maybe they’ll have a longer shelf life if they didn’t bend like a Russian gymnast.
–The Hawks re-assigned Jeremy Morin to Rockford today. There was no word on whether he was coming back for Wednesday’s game and after last week’s Ben Smith and Ryan Potulny re-assignment, no one should take a call back for granted. What I did find interesting was how drastically the public opinion has changed about the Hawks brass.
Take Tim Sassone’s Tweets for example. Here’s what he said last week before the game against the Devils and word came out John Scott and Jordan Hendry were going to skate on the 4th line.
But Q deserves the benefit of the doubt. He knows what he’s doing. #blackhawks
Now less than one week later, here’s how he feels about Morin’s re-assignment.
Morin assigned to Rockford. Why? And Bickell stays? Bad move, salary cap problem or not. #blackhawks
Funny how a week ago, Quenneville deserved the benefit of the doubt yet now this Morin move deserves to be answered. By the way, he may only be making $545,000 but Bryan Bickell’s 3-year deal is looking worse by the minute. Ouch, babe.
