In the latest Hawks Talk Podcast, Pat Boyle, Charlie Roumeliotis and Slavko Bekovic provide their thoughts on the Blackhawks’ 3-0-2 start.
They also discuss Brandon Saad’s demotion and whether it could serve as a wake-up call, Corey Crawford’s potential return on Thursday vs. Arizona and what could happen with Anton Forsberg because of it, and address the power play concerns.
The guys wrap up the podcast by making a few bold predictions going forward.
The changing of the guard continues for the Cubs this offseason.
After the team hired a new hitting coach yesterday, it was reported today that they're losing a front office member:
Rangers are expected to announce the hiring of Shiraz Rehman as an assistant general manager. He is currently with the Cubs... should help with their analytics systems— TR Sullivan (@Sullivan_Ranger) October 16, 2018
Rehman, who has been with the Cubs in the same position for the last seven years, will reportedly head up the Rangers' analytics department. According to the Chicago Tribune, Rehman's role was " evaluating existing systems, and recognizing and applying solutions in an effort to create competitive advantages for the organization."
All reports indicate that he'll be doing similar analytic-based work with the Rangers.
