Oduya expected back vs. Canadiens ESPN (blog) CHICAGO -- Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Johnny Oduya is expected to play against the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday after missing the past three games with a lower-body injury, coach Joel...
Kevin Irlbacker's insight:

After suffering a bad lower-body injury earlier this season, Defensemen Johnny Oduya is finally back in the lineup. This is good timing for him to come back, because they are about to enter the playoff race. Oduya is a great asset to the Hawks and will hopefully prove that an injury didn't slow him down.

This is huge for the Blackhawks! Hopefully we can get Kane and Toews back for the playoffs too.
Danny Zwierzynski's comment, April 9, 2014 12:45 PM
This is a very good sign for the black hawks coming back together as a team. But will Kane and Toews be back for the playoffs? Those were some pretty big injuries

Rant Sports
With the regular season coming to a close, the teams already in are sprinting to claim a good spot in the postseason.
Kevin Irlbacker's insight:

The Blackhawks faced the Colorado Avalanche to get home-ice advantage in the playoffs. Home-ice is very important for them because they have the noise of their fans to cheer them on. This was a big game for the Hawks, and they hope to get momentum leading into the playoffs to win another Stanley Cup.

ESPN NFL Insider Matt Williamson put together a list ranking the league’s true No. 1 receivers , and what’s interesting is the Chicago Bea (Bears only team with two true No.
Kevin Irlbacker's insight:

This news is incredible for the Bears next season. Both of these wide receivers proved themselves this past year to be two of the elite WR's in the league. The Bears offense needs to continue being dominate and utilize these powerful weapons to win a championship.

Chicago Blackhawks’ Ben Smith Enjoying Breakout Season

Chicago Blackhawks’ Ben Smith Enjoying Breakout Season | Chicago Sports | Scoop.it
As a team, the Chicago Blackhawks are playing much better than they were prior to Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane‘s regular season-ending injuries.
Kevin Irlbacker's insight:

Ben Smith is having an incredible season starting on the 4th line of the lineup. He has been one of the most consistent players in the lineup, after the injury of captain Jonathan Toews. He has been a huge asset to the team and can hopefully continue the way he is playing in the post season.

Jose Abreu Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images The Jose Abreu signing was exactly the kind of deal a team like the White Sox should make. The Chicago White Sox are almost certainly not going to contend this year.
Kevin Irlbacker's insight:

Considering the White sox had a terrible season last year, this is great news for them. They needed a good rebuild to their team and that is exactly what they're getting. With the addition of Jose Abreu, they are looking to lead toward a successful season this year.

The Chicago Bulls hope they're poised to learn from their latest loss and ready to begin another winning streak.
Kevin Irlbacker's insight:

Noah having a triple-double is outstanding for a player like him. Noah has drastically improved from last year and continues this year to be dominate. The Bulls will be entering the playoffs soon with an all-star Center by their side. I would say they are in pretty good shape.

Report: Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller meets with Chicago Bears

Report: Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller meets with Chicago Bears | Chicago Sports | Scoop.it
Virginia Tech's Kyle Fuller, one of top five corners in the draft, is meeting with the CB-needy Chicago Bears. (Va.
Kevin Irlbacker's insight:

The Bears struggled a lot last year with their defense, having one of the worst defenses  in the league. Picking up CB Kyle Fuller would be a huge improvement to the Bears secondary. He had an outstanding combine and definitely proved himself. Hopefully everything works out and he ends up where he needs to be, with the Chicago Bears.

The Bears could definately use a guy like this. The secondary was terrible last year.
