Hawks shouldn't worry about the future

Michael Raiger, Sarnia, Ont.

Forget all this talk about the Blackhawks needing to look to the off-season to re-sign their "Big Four RFAs" (yes, that is correct; Niklas Hjalmarsson will be a superstar in this league one day).

As a Hawks fan, I say it's time to end this Stanley Cup drought already!

Cristobal Huet might be shaky, but this team is allowing just a tad more than 20 shots against per game without Marian Hossa (one of the best defensive forwards in the game), so worrying about goaltending does not sit with me.

So forget this talk about trading Patrick Sharp, Kris Versteeg, and Cam Barker in attempts to save money for the off-season.

Keep this team together* and let's go win the Cup!

*Trading Brian Campbell's handcuffing contract excluded.
