On the latest Hawks Talk Podcast, Pat Boyle takes the show on the road to Jeremy Roenick’s first ever Hockey School. A trio of Blackhawks & USA Hockey legends join the podcast: Jeremy Roenick, Patrick Kane and Chris Chelios.
They all share camp stories from when they were kids and how the youth talent level in the Chicagoland area has improved during the Hawks recent Cup runs.
Kane tells us if Panarin has responded to his post trade text and JR lets us know how the Breadman’s departure is not easy on Patrick.
They also discuss the crossroads the Hawks are at this season and Kane explains how it can’t be the core players and young guys this season, it needs to be a total team effort

Chicago's chosen son may soon play with the enemy.
According to reports on Thursday, Derrick Rose is in talks to join LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on a one-year deal.
That is indeed hard to imagine, considering the former MVP has spent years battling James for supremacy in the Eastern Conference. But leaving the Windy City to join a rival team isn't a new concept.
In fact, a few Chicago superstar athletes have done it before:
-- Chris Chelios, Blackhawks to Red Wings
One of the best defenseman in hockey, Chelios was traded to the Detroit Red Wings after nine productive seasons in Chicago. He hoisted a Stanley Cup not long after and finished his 10-year Red Wings career with 152 points and a plus-158.
-- Julius Peppers, Bears to Packers
After becoming a cap casualty with the Bears, Peppers chose greener pastures in Wisconsin. The defensive end signed with the Green Bay Packers, where he's tallied 25 sacks in three seasons.
-- Dexter Fowler, Cubs to Cardinals
Well, at least he won a ring here. Fowler's surprise return to the North Side in 2016 helped boost the Cubs to their first World Series trophy in 108 years, but after winning, the center fielder rightly opted for the money. He signed a five-year, $82.5 million deal in St. Louis last offseason.
