PuckChatter~Radio returned Sunday night (in sixty-minute form) to review a bunch of topics, some of which actually pertained to Chicago Blackhawks hockey.
We also reviewed our recent camping excursion in the northern reaches of Wisconsin, Sunday’s trip to Wrigley Field for the Chicago Cubs game (and more) and also a recent altercation Block had outside of a Jewel-Osco.
On the hockey side we talked the potential changes and ramifications should the NHL owners and player’s association agree to modify the current structure of Entry-Level contracts, Rostislav Olesz‘s status for this season, a Kyle Beach article sets a new standard for incompetence, Cristobal Huet‘s new big contract and the Blackhawks new ticket pricing structure for the 2012-13 season.
All that and much, much more.

As a follow up to Igor Makarov signing with St. Petersburg (KHL), it appears the Blackhawks did execute a contractual release of the one-remaining year on his entry-level deal. That means Makarov is off the 50-man roster. In the Russian interview we cited in Friday’s story, Makarov said the Hawks released him and that claim now lines up. His name has now been removed from the team’s web site.
–All remaining regular season Blackhawks tickets go on sale Monday morning at 10am central via Ticketmaster. Standing room is now $27. First seven rows of the top level will cost $72 or $90 (60-72 if your seats are behind netting) depending on the opponent. To sit eleven rows off the ice on the weekend or against an Original Six or rivalry opponent now costs you $200. And you thought trading Brian Campbell would save us money….
