The Blackhawks have cap space, but can they do anything worthwhile with it?

Since the opening of free agency on July 1, the Blackhawks have added a fourth-line winger in Chris Kunitz, a third-pairing defenseman in Brandon Manning, and a backup goaltender in Cam Ward, while dealing away Vinnie Hinostroza, Jordan Oesterle and Marian Hossa's contract. It's been a pretty underwhelming offseason following a highly disappointing season, and Mark Lazerus of the Sun-Times and Tracey Myers of NHL.com dive right into it with a new episode of On The Beat from prospects camp at MB Ice Arena. They discuss whether Blackhawks fans should expect a splashy trade anytime soon and what, if anything, general manager Stan Bowman should be doing with all this newfound cap space he has. They also discuss what they've seen so far at prospect camp (17:15) answer listener questions (20:55) about Anton Forsberg, which members of the core will be Hawks for life, which breaking news stories have ruined their best-laid plans, which red wine to drink, and much more.

Silly season has begun: Who might be coming and going from the Blackhawks?

Joel Quenneville and Stan Bowman are returning to the Blackhawks. Now what?

John McDonough finally announces that both coach Joel Quenneville and general manager Stan Bowman are returning to the Blackhawks next season, despite the team's last-place finish in the Central Division.

Joel Quenneville and Stan Bowman are returning to the Blackhawks. Now what?

Is Joel Quenneville still the right coach for the Blackhawks?

Sun-Times jack of all trades Mark Potash joins Mark Lazerus and Tracey Myers this week to try to decide Joel Quenneville's fate with the Blackhawks (12:10). Can the Hawks justify firing the second-winningest coach in NHL history? Should they even be considering it? Or are other, more glaring issues to blame for the Hawks' woes? The hosts also get into how Hawks should spend their salary-cap space this summer (6:10), and they re-litigate the Brandon Saad-Artemi Panarin trade 10 months later (19:05). Lazerus wades even deeper into the Connor McDavid Hart Trophy controversy (24:35) and then the trio answers several listener questions (32:00) about Nick Schmaltz, their favorite regular-season games they've covered, and Stan Bowman's radical idea of in-game substitutions.

Have the Blackhawks quit? And who does Jonathan Toews hate?

As the realization sets in that the Blackhawks will miss the playoffs for the first time in 10 years, have the Blackhawks quit? Or is their inconsistent, sluggish play the result of a crisis in confidence? Mark Lazerus of the Sun-Times and Tracey Myers discuss that, discuss players around the league that big-brawler Jonathan Toews hates, get into the team’s alarming defensive decline, and answer a litany of listener questions about the Blackhawks, the future, and where to eat on the road.

Farewell, Ryan Hartman and Tommy Wingels. Hello, uncertain future.

The Blackhawks say farewell to Ryan Hartman and Tommy Wingels at the trade deadline, and say hello to an uncertain future. General manager Stan Bowman is optimistic about the near future, but are hosts Mark Lazerus of the Sun-Times and Tracey Myers? They get into that debate, discuss the evident importance of Corey Crawford, and wonder if the Hawks can pull off what the Boston Bruins have managed to pull off —successfully build a contender around an aging core.
