Monday night, we were joined by John and Bob of the fantastic Blackhawks’ blog FifthFeather.com

A bevy of topics were discussed, from Jay Cutler to Ivan Vishnevskiy.  There’s a quick wrap on the weekend that was for the Blackhawks and thoughts on where the team stands now.  We look at what Stan Bowman can do.  A move he soon will make.  Roster headaches.  An unbiased realistic look at the Brent Seabrook contract negotiations.   Other topics include Stanley Cup favorites, the Evgeni Nabokov waiver situation, the NHL All-Star weekend ahead, tweaking the shootout format and so much more.
