How about a Dirk Graham night?

DENVER - OK, I'll join the discussion, even though I don't know how we got here. Yes, the Hawks are going to honor Tony Amonte and Bob Probert with a "Heritage Night," which pretty much consists of them dropping the puck like Larmer did. I can see saluting Amonte, but Probert? Why? Ya, he was popular and all, but that's about it. His best years were in Detroit and he'll always be a Red Wing. I'm all for a Dave Manson night. Nobody loved Charlie more than me, one of my favorite Hawks ever, and a great guy. But how about Dirk Graham? He's one of the greatest captains and leaders in Hawks history, playing on one leg on most nights later in his career. Just putting in my two cents... Kane practiced Wednesday and the decision will be made Thursday if he plays against the Avs. Why not sit him one more game just to make sure the ankle is sound. The Hawks have won two games without him and scored 11 goals. Then again, the power play isn't the same without 88.
