Around the UC:


-Toews has yet another thing to add to that long resumé of his, he joins Kane has a NHL cover boy. According to Puck Daddy, EA Sports had a slip up and announced Toews as the NHL 11 cover boy. Check out Toews on the cover in the new alternate jersey here. This is now two years in a row a Hawk graces the cover. World domination!

The Trailer:



-Cabbie and WGN have two things in common: They both cover the Hawks and they both cover them using funny.

-Dale Tallon is responsible for the big guys on the Hawks including those two boys
named Toews and Kane. There really should be no reason to why he shouldn't have his
name on the Cup and new bling on his finger.

Tallon: "Listen, this organization has been very good to me for 33 years and I expect them to take good care of me. I have no concerns about that. It's a class group and as I've said, I expect everything to be done in a classy manner. They've always taken care of me."

Tallon: ''I was totally excited and just really proud. I was proud of them. I was proud of what we accomplished. I was proud of what was done there and the work put into it to get to that level.''
