Major league prices, minor league talent

Over on Madison Avenue, the Blackhawks have thrown in the towel for the season. Major league versus minor league arguments are a thing of the past if Denis Savard can be believed. The Chicago Sun-Times quoted him as saying, “I won’t let them play…” Savard was referring to the poor performance of veteran players such as Peter Bondra and Adrian Aucoin, although the return of Martin Havlat has seemed to have no effect on the Blackhawk season either.

If Savard can be believed, and the stats are supporting him, Bhawks fans can look forward to paying NHL prices to see the team’s prospects for the rest of the season. The Hawks have slumped to last place in their division, with the other cellar dwellers, the St. Louis Blues and Columbus Blue Jackets somehow overcoming the odds to pull ahead of the Hawks. While it is unlikely the Hawks will allow the Philadelphia Flyers, just 17 wins this season, to pull ahead due to the few games remaining. It looks like yet another banner year for the losers of Madison Avenue.
