The Blackhawks have re-signed Jamal Mayers to a one year, 600,000 deal.
Despite being a healthy scratch during the end of the playoff series against the Coyotes, Mayers proved to be a leader who added physical presence to the team and could be relied on during the penalty kill.
However, he may not see an enormous amount of playing time since the Blackhawks are now very well-stocked on their fourth line. But his high level physicality will always be appreciated, especially against aggressive opponents.
Who are the Bulls? The team that beat Cleveland and Toronto or lost to Dallas, Minnesota and Milwaukee?
That's the question Bulls fans are currently asking and the one Bulls Insider Vincent Goodwill posed in the video above.
The Bulls have had impressive wins and shocking losses, but neither of those should be surprising at this point. The Bulls are, as Goodwill put it, consistently inconsistent.
The first half of the season has proven that Dwyane Wade still has some memorable moments left to give and Jimmy Butler continues to approach superstardom. On the downside, the drama surrounding Rajon Rondo has meant the 'three alphas' that were hyped up in the preseason haven't been the dynamic trio some Bulls fans had hoped.
Coach Fred Hoiberg doesn't have the shooters his system needs, but can he still rally the troops and get something out of Rondo?
Watch the video to see Goodwill's look back on the Bulls' first half and what could be ahead.
