I was thinking the same thing….Seabrook also wears the A.

Are the Hawks going to play Toews on D?

from Mark Lazerus of the Chicago Sun-Times,

As morning skates wind down, Joel Quenneville quickly skates around the rink and informs that night’s healthy scratches that they won’t be in the lineup. It’s something he’s done thousands of times in his coaching career.

Tuesday morning was a little different.

“He just told me I wasn’t playing,” Brent Seabrook said.

It’s one thing to scratch Tomas Jurco. It’s quite another to scratch the heart and soul of three Stanley Cup championship squads, a man who is fifth all-time in games played for the Blackhawks. But the simple fact is Quenneville believed that Jordan Oesterle, Connor Murphy, Michal Kempny, Gustav Forsling and Jan Rutta (who carry a combined cap hit of $7.195 million) have played better than Seabrook (who has a cap hit of $6.875 million, with six more years left on that contract).

Daaaaaaaaaaaang. That’s rough.

Hate to bring this back to the Wings, but that’s a really tough decision that I am not sure the Red Wings organization would make. Then again, our defensive prospects are quite questionable.

The odd thing here is, I don’t believe the Hawks have any good prospective Dmen.  Maybe he’s just trying to send a message to the team to wake them up.

But really, what a jerk Quenville must be to bench Seabrook without explanation.  Oh, the humanity!

A lineup based on merit? Imagine that.

He should come to Detroit where there is never any accountability especially for veterans with Cup experience

If Seabrook can’t regain form, the Blackhawks will be in a world of pain. 6 more years at $6.875M! Even the Wings don’t have a contract that bad.
