Kukla's Korner Hockey

First time someone said the Hawks were going to sign Nikolai Khabibulin, I just paused and waited. It sounded exactly like, "A horse walks into a bar with a parrot on his shoulder, and ...'' So you wait for the punch line. The Hawks don't sign superstars. The Hawks don't spend money. And the idea that they had gone out and gotten arguably the best goalie in the world, well, that just seemed laughable. But it was no joke, of course. And on the day they signed the Bulin Wall, Hawks general manager Dale Tallon said, "The Blackhawks are back.'' But as it turned out, this was the biggest joke of all because the Blackhawks still stink.
