How the cap's already pinching Chicago

07:31 AM ET 11.20 | Chicago opened up its seven-game trip with a 5-1 drubbing in Colorado -- certainly not how Joel Quenneville drew it up. "Not the game or the trip," he said. "Just the opposite." Compounding matters for the Hawks, who already were without winger Marian Hossa (lower-body injury), they lost winger Bryan Bickell to an apparent lower leg injury in the disastrous first period. Quenneville was unsure but cast doubt on Bickell's status for the game Thursday against the Winnipeg Jets. The Hawks have no spare forwards -- defenseman Sheldon Brookbank played wing again with Hossa out -- and Quenneville said Hossa's status, as well as salary-cap concerns, would determine if they recall a forward from Rockford. "We definitely have business decisions along with ... hockey decisions and getting the right fit."

The way the AVs kicked their butt, it looks like there's a new sheriff in the West.

St. Louis and their beatdown of the Avs may say otherwise...

Nope. He died of a discharge. His gun went off.
