Another link to Chicago

Chicago made a good move Thursday when hiring Scotty Bowman to look after hockey operations and work with his son, Stanley, the assistant GM. He was officially named senior adviser, and he'll have plenty of suggestions to keep the 'Hawks going in the right direction.

It's yet another connection between Chicago and Buffalo. Patrick Kane, of course, is from South Buffalo. Kevyn Adams is an unrestricted free agent from Clarence who was on the team last season. Stanley Bowman was raised in East Amherst, and his parents have remained in the same home.

Rick Dudley, who lives in Lewiston, also works as an assistant to GM Dale Tallon. Sweet Home grad Pete Hassen is director of community relations. Can we count Brian Campbell? Former Channel 2 and Empire Sports Network personality Josh Mora covers the team for Comcast SportsNet along with Kerry Sayers, who also passed through town with Empire.

I was there for a few days last year, and it seemed all that was missing was a bucket of chicken wings and a six-pack of Genny. OK, a case.
