However, last night was an all nighter watching the Chicago Cubs play an exciting extra inning game, which of course started late, because the game was on the west coast.
The game gave me plenty of flashbacks Chicago Blackhawks playoff games in recent years, going past regulation and into the early morning means tons of coffee in the morning. The only bright spot for me this week, that I'm on vacation this week, unlike during the week Blackhawks playoff run.
The game resembled a thrilling overtime game of the past Blackhawks late in the second heroics and going to play a video review. It was all that really has me excited Blackhawks season, even if they do not like Alexandre Fortin roster.
There will be a lot of young people in the roster to start the season, and the Hawks need one of them to really step up their order Joel Quenneville will not ruin his familiar lines such as Patrick Kane Jersey aligned Bread man and Artem Anisimov.
It all starts tomorrow, and it can not start too early !!

Brian Campbell asked his 3-year-old daughter Harper a question: "What is your favorite hockey team"
There was a moment of silence as Harper looked around the dining room of the family home in Western Springs, aware that all eyes were on her.
Again Campbell asked: "What team do you like?"
A smile appeared on the face of Harper.
"The Blackhawks Jersey!" He said with a dose of excitement.
Campbell asked a follow-up question: "Do you want to return to Florida"
The smile disappeared. Substitution was an expression of disgust as if someone was trying to feed their vegetables.
"No," he said softly, and then resumed playing with plasticine.
Campbell played for the Panthers the last five seasons, but the native of London, Ontario, actually never left Chicago.
He had met his wife, Lauren, born in Burr Ridge, in 2009 and his family is here. They had built a life and do not want to give it up, even after the Hawks traded him for salary cap reasons after three seasons in 2011.

"That's a question Dunc and medical staff, Stan [Bowman] Joel [Quenneville], we will all come to this. I foresee certainly in these first four games. I would say it will not happen" Dineen said. "We'll let him continue to make progress on his schedule he is now."
Keith attended a practice every day, but not in one of the scrimmages. The assistant coach Mike Kitchen said Keith asked to skate in the second team training every day - each session is approximately 20-25 minutes - but the Blackhawks Jersey have said no. From now on, both Dineen and Figure Kitchen Keith will be ready for the regular season opens but the Blackhawks will continue to be cautious with him.

Even when he was bypassed in two consecutive projects in the NHL, Alexandre Fortin Jersey never wavered in his belief that he could play professional hockey.
On Sunday, this belief became reality when the Blackhawks signed the 19-year-old forward from Laval, Quebec, to a three-year entry-level contract.
"I have to thank the Chicago Blackhawks - this is the first team that really believed in me, it's great," said Fortin. "I know what I can do on the ice."
He said not to be written was "mentally difficult, but ... I know what I'm capable of, so I showed."
After Fortin scored 19 goals and added 24 assists in 54 regular season games with Rouyn-Noranda of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League last season, the Hawks invited free agent prospect camp, where it is fairly skill to be added to the training camp of the alignment.
"I wanted to come here and prove who I am," he said. "I was always rather low profile and now I have what I wanted and it's perfect."
"He got a contract," said Hawks assistant coach Mike Kitchen. "From the beginning, he stepped up and played. He has been very consistent in all scrimmage (and) it was a threat to score. I think he did a great job (and) it is ideal for 'organization."
Due to age restrictions, if Fortin does not make the Hawks list - and it is more than likely it will not - it will return to the QMJHL for further development.
"I like his willingness to learn," said assistant coach Kevin Dineen. "He is an intelligent brain child with a beautiful offensive skill set that he was able to show here at the beginning. It is off to a real good start and he worked his way to try to find a place in one of our exhibition games. "
