If Versteeg sits, then who will gain the blue line, reverse ice to create room, create no room in doing so and then get stripped of the puck for an odd man rush going the other way? Who? Tell me Q, who will take up that role?

Judging by his play in game 4, I am going to guess Derrick Rose.

Q said Corey Crawford will start Game 1. "It's his net. Let's go." #Blackhawks

That would just be too good to be true. I gotta add I've really liked Desjardins' play on the 4th line.

I just hope that Timonen and Roszival aren't too much of a defensive liability. It sure would be nice to have a healthy TVR, or another young up and coming defense (ala Hjalmmer in the 2010 playoffs).

I'm no hockey expert, but 11 total shots on goal in a game 7 isn't very good, right?

Considering 3 of the 11 were by forwards...no. Not good.

Vermette line could be more dangerous than the Richards line.

 

Seems like such a waste to have the passing of Kane with Bickell and Richards. Kane needs a sniper to work with. But I guess they are more interested in Kane shooting and Bickell being traffic in front.

Ruutu and Daze were my favorite players as a kid. And Alexei Zhamnov.

 

I was really good at EA Sports NHL games back in the day . I could beat anyone using the Hawks. Zhamnov and Daze were my big scorers . Or maybe that was when you could sort of cheat at the game and make the players better than they were by increasing their shot accuracy and other skills. :P

Why is there such a long amount of time between series like this?

The Red Wings-Lightning series is not over until game 7 tomorrow, and they won't start the 2nd round until the entire 1st round is done.

8:30 local starts are completely asinine. This is BS for everyone who has to be up early for work. I was willing to give the NHL a pass in the first round, but there are now less games. Complete douchebaggery.

Meanwhile... some potential big news for the Hawks moving forward

 

"Hearing free-agent F Artem Panarin, who led KHL champion St. Petersburg in scoring, is getting close to joining the Chicago Blackhawks."

It was Elliotte Friedman.

 

He's a sniper with a hell of a wrister, but he's another small forward. 5'9" 170-ish.

 

Not saying that's bad, just saying.

Would be a very nice, and creative get for the Hawks, especially with a lot of holes going to be open next season.

 

Thank you! I agree wholeheartedly. I'm glad to see the Hawks aren't shying away from Russian hockey players. If they do sign him, it'll be exciting to see how he translates into the NHL. It could also make the loss of Sharp sting a little less as far as the top 6 is concerned. Unless you think Sharp is done, in which case, you should be even happier. :lol:

On that note, it's funny to read the national opinion of the Blackhawks. It's very easy to get caught up in the bubble of following the team every day, and to be frustrated with this and that, but they really have turned into the Red Wings of this generation. They are now the most veteran team in the playoffs in terms of experience, are seemingly always in the hunt for the Cup, and even when they have to "start over", it's more of a reload than a re-tool.

 

I'm not saying everything is perfect, but we are going to look back on this team in 20 years and shake our head at how good of a run they really had.

 

 

Agreed. They won't be AS good next year, but I don't see a humongous drop-off. They are still gonna be a tough out as long as they have this core.
