    Poz'd this more than 2 months late, but yeah.
    2017 playoffs were the most frustrating experience. Every round, all the teams I wanted to win lost. But there were still enough engaging storylines and teams that I wanted to see lose that I kept tuning in. And then none of those storylines played out and the more hated team always won. The worst of all worlds.

    So the 2017 -18 Hawks look like total garbage! I guess it's sort of cool that we got Saad back.

    Yep, and it is pretty cool. Oddly enough, I think I’ve been genetically preconditioned to be one of those “pro racism” people - i.e. sorta dig the classic logo. My dad’s side of the family were a bunch of hockey die hard North Dakotans, who also happened to be a good percentage Blackfeet Indian. And they love the old logo. As I think about it now, the love probably had a lot more to do with being whiteboy hockey kids from the north than it had to do with being 1/4 (1/8?) Native American. But their love for the logo still stuck with me.
    Also, I don’t think the Blackhawk logo is overtly or negatively cartoony (like the old Cleveland Indians logo) and Blackhawks being the name of a tribe is better than if the team name were an actual ethnic slur (“Redskins”). So, of all the offensive and probably racist sports things out there, this was always one I didn’t really get angry about. Also, because “history!” I guess.

    Haha. Yeah, so long as we keep on this pace, we’re golden!!
    I was going a bit overboard with “total garbage,” but still not fully sold.
