    With Canada's underwhelming goalie performances after this last year, I would have to imagine that Crawford would at least get an invite, but I would be shocked to see him higher then #3 on the depth chart.

    Crawford's only exceptional season was half of one. The Chicago season before was probably, actually hindered by his performance. Carey Price will most likely be our starter for Sochi

    Cute article I guess... I dislike HockeyBuzz for undless reasons

    Although I could make the same list for all teams.

    1. Name every player on your roster and why they are great
    2. List your arena/venue, anthem singers and music and claim it's the best
    3. Every team has ice girls
    4. List your commited management and thinking heads from the coach to the GM and everyone in between.


    Im not a Blackhawks fan, but the list to me that sets the team apart are:

    - Jonathon Toews IS one of the best Captains in the game, and young to boot. A staple in Chicago, and the league for many years to come.
    - Chelsea Dagger
    - One of the few, exciting and involved fan bases out of the USA.

    Blackhawks give Crawford 6-year contract extension

    Corey Crawford's incredible year has been capped off with the announcement that that Chicago Blackhawks goaltender agreed to a six-year contract extension Monday.
    Crawford helped lead the Hawks to the Stanley Cup in June and now the goalie has a deal that runs through the 2019-20 season. After capturing the Jennings Trophy, along with Ray Emery, for the top goaltending perfomance during the 2013 season, the 28-year-old Crawford was stellar during the postseason by posting a 16-7 record, 1.84 goals-against average and .932 saves percentage in 23 games in the playoffs.
    The signing comes the same day the Montreal native has his day with the Cup. Last week, Crawford attended Team Canada's Olympic orientation camp in Calgary that could be the first step toward securing a roster spot for Canada during the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.
    "There’s been a lot going on the last couple of months," Crawford said last week. "It’s pretty crazy to think about it after being in the minors only four years ago and thinking about whether I was going to make it or not to the NHL."

    Ok . Good season , but 6yrs for a guy who runs hot/cold similar to Luongo ? Let's see how he does .... but I Hope the Hawks don't live to regret this .

    I am okay with it. He earned it. Coming into his own, and should have been the MVP of the Stanley Cup Playoffs

    He won a cup and played out of his mind in the playoffs. The Hawks as a team played real good unlike the previous seasons. The talent is there and as long as they keep playing this way we could see a few more championships.

    It's nothing short of terrible. You don't pay a goalie that much, especially not in the salary cap era, unless he is a truly elite franchise centerpiece. That's not Corey Crawford. Hopefully, revenue keeps rising after the inflation of these TV contracts.
