  • Catching up with Andrew Shaw

    by Scott King @ScottKingMedia It’s been three seasons since the Blackhawks traded away a player Joel Quenneville deemed “irreplaceable.” The struggling Hawks, who have lost seven straight games and sit in last place in the NHL, have proven the former coach right in not being able to put a player on the ice as feisty and determined as Shaw. Chicago hasn’t had anyone who can get under the opponent’s skin and add some offense in the process as much as […]
