Chicago Blackhawks are the 2010 Stanley Cup Champs!

I am still so excited I can barely contain it! This series vs. the Flyers has been really good. I was starting to think that it would go to game 7, but thanks to hockey god Patrick Kane, we won! 4-3! in overtime! And Captain Jonathan Toews won the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP. The game winning goal, scored by Patrick Kane, took everyone by surprise. No one was sure, except for Kane, that it went in, until it was replayed. There was no signal from the officials, but the team just knew! The playoffs have been great and a lot of good hockey was played. Now, to wish I could be in Chicago and go to the parade. THANK YOU HAWKS!!! It was a great season and you have proven to be a great team, a good cohesive unit. You have shown what a good team can be like.

Jonathan Toews named 34th Captain of the Chicago Blackhawks

It was announced at the Blackhawks Convention that 20 year old Jonathan Toews would now be the Captain for the Chicago Blackhawks. He is the 3rd youngest person to become a captain of their team in the NHL. And he appears to be a great choice. They say he is a great leader among his peers, although he has been called “Mr. Serious”. It is believed that he has the ability to bring this team back to the playoffs, and yes, maybe even the Stanley Cup (dare we hope, dream?). Jonathan was told of the decision right before the ceremony, so it was a bit of a shock, but I am sure he knew that it would be him soon. The buzz had been going around for quite a while that it would happen before the new season. Well, Captain Toews, we expect great things from you! And I am sure you can do it!
