The Blackhawks have yet to find a taker for goalie Nikolai Khabibulin, probably because of the exorbitant contract GM Dale Tallon gave him years ago. Nobody in the NHL wants him. So what will the Hawks do with him?
Here are a few suggested destinations:
Hockey hasn't caught on here despite the fact it's colder than some parts of Canada. I think it's just because the fine folks in this state haven't been introduced to the sport. Once they are, I think it could rival alcoholism as the region's favorite diversion.
I don't think you can hear boos in outer space. After three disappointing years with the Hawks, that will be a plus for Khabby.
Were time travel possible, going back just three years or so and not giving Khabibulin a huge deal wouldn't be good enough. After all the soft goals he's let get past him, I vote for something more extreme: prehistoric times.
