Say, were you on the fence about casting an NHL All-Star Game ballot for Jonathan Toews ? Perhaps youre worried he cant rock a headband. Or pump iron. Perhaps youre concerned about him not being the Canadian dream. Well, the Chicago Blackhawks are about to knock your backside off that fence. Because its time to Exercise Your Right To Vote! (Well, clearly someone inside the Blackhawks video team is a Tim and Eric fan) The Blackhawks debuted the first in what we assume is a series of kitschy player-centric videos that feature headbands, tanktops, pastel colors and a 1980s aesthetic. View gallery . And if youve ever wanted to see a super-intense Patrick Kane in aerobics gear on a step machine winking at you, merry Christmas. View gallery . Is it uh hot in here did someone maybe leave the Yule log on a little too long swoon The lesson here, folks: Jonathan Toews is a comedy genius who chooses not to unleash his powers, and any time you mine the 1980s for comedy, its gold. And yes, that is an excuse to run this Los Angeles Kings video again: GOOOOO KIIIINGS! source:–goofy-retro-workout-commercial-earns-our-all-star-vote-222118818.html

The drop has been even steeper for the White Sox, who went from a franchise-best 2,957,411 in 2006, when they were coming off a championship run, to 1,650,821 in 2014. Good seats might not be as easy to find after all the deals. ”I have been a Sox fan for over 30 years and I don’t remember an offseason quite like this,” said Tom Dorsey, who grew up near the ballpark in the Bridgeport neighborhood and still lives there. He can see why Cubs fans are excited, too. ”Theo and (general manager Jed Hoyer’s) vision can finally be seen by the common fan,” Dorsey said. Boyer says last week was the busiest for full and partial season-ticket sales in December since the White Sox signed Adam Dunn four years ago. Acquiring Samardzija and Robertson sparked such a huge surge in interest that general manager Rick Hahn credited the increase in sales for convincing chairman Jerry Reinsdorf to sign off on the budget-breaking $42 million, three-year deal the team gave Cabrera. Apparel is in higher demand, too. ”With the signing of Maddon and the signing of Lester, it just slingshots the enthusiasm to the next level,” said Bradley Rosen, part-owner of Sports World across the street from Wrigley. He said the interest trickles down to ”all things Cubbies.” Jim Pisani, president of apparel manufacturer Majestic Athletic, said the timing of the moves was ”almost perfect” for business with the holiday season. He also can’t remember a situation like this, with two teams in the same market making huge splashes. source:–mlb.html

Big moves bring big hope for Chicago baseball – Yahoo Sports

I’m going to play [Saturday].” The Blackhawks went 7-1-0 in Crawford’s absence. Goaltenders Antti Raanta and Scott Darling each started four games during that span and combined for a .947 save percentage in the eight games. Darling was reassigned to Chicago’s AHL affiliate on Tuesday, and Raanta will back up Crawford on Saturday. “I think we’ve been very fortunate with the consistency of our goaltenders this year no matter who has been in net,” Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said Friday. “Game in, game out, getting the job done. [Crawford] looked good today in practice. He’s been pushing it to get in here. Give him a chance to get in here before the holiday.” Crawford was off to the best start of any of his NHL seasons prior to the injury. He ranks fourth in the NHL in goals-against average and seventh in save percentage. He wasn’t concerned about getting back to that level. source:

The winger was assigned to Rockford of the AHL for a conditioning assignment Tuesday because he wasn’t playing at all with the loaded Blackhawks. The 23-year-old Morin has eight goals and eight assists in 54 career regular-season games, all with Chicago. He also played in two postseason games in May. Erixon, 23, had one goal and five assists in 19 games with Columbus this season. He scored his first NHL goal on Oct. 26 at Los Angeles. The Blackhawks lost rookie defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk to a broken left kneecap last month. They reassigned defenseman Klas Dahlbeck to Rockford on Sunday. Copyright 2014 The Associated Press.
