Blackhawks Daily: So Long CapFriendly; Colliton Back in the NHL



It looks like the end for the go-to-one-stop-shop for everything NHL contracts: CapFriendly. According to reports, the Washington Capitals purportedly have bought the website and it will go dark soon. The news hasn’t been met with rave reviews across the league, and even a simple search on Google finds that the Blackhawks are one of the more searched teams for the platform.

All is not lost, however as PuckPedia becomes the new catch all for everything with contracts, players, and even draft pick analysis in terms of value. That is–until another NHL team decides to buy it out.

Meanwhile, Jeremy Colliton is back in the NHL.  The former Chicago Blackhawks head coach has been hired by the New Jersey Devils to be their associate coach. He will be on Sheldon Keefe’s staff as they try to rebound from what was a rather disappointing year.

Colliton was not in a good spot during his time with the Blackhawks. He was with a team trying to win but didn’t exactly have the pieces needed to be successful. There were also issues going on off the ice that were very difficult to be around.

Being a part of the Devils team will teach him a lot. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time with Chicago but now he has moved on. Colliton now has a chance to refine his skillset, and find a way back to lead the bench once again.

In the Stanley Cup Final, the Florida Panthers took a 2-0 series lead thanks to a dominant win over the Edmonton Oilers. The Panthers controlled the Oilers for the majority of the game while Evan Rodrigues starred with a pair of goals. Edmonton has to figure it out quickly as they’ve managed just one goal in two games.

Blackhawks In Case You Missed It

Konsta Helenius could be a premier talent in the league–but could he actually slide to the Blackhawks?

Adam Jiricek is the latest potential prospect that the Blackhawks could consider at #18.

The Chicago Blackhawks are looking to build a winning team. They should be going off Connor McDavid’s path to the Stanley Cup Final.

Michael Hage, who starred for the Chicago Steel, continues to rocket up the draft board.

The Chicago Blackhawks should consider someone like Berkly Catton in the first round–especially if he falls closer to #18.
