    12.5% still isn't very much

    I still hope they win. 30%+ and you have my attention

    With the cap likely not going up and the Hawks up against it. They are going to need to find space for Mitchel and Beaudin.

    I’ve seen nothing on Kalynuk... can this kid play?

    listen it was a great performance.

    but the Hawks went in knowing it’s game time this weekend

    Blues don’t need to turn it up just yet.

    again great performance.

    still team Lafreniere

    People shit on Stan and some of his moves justify it. But dealing a 5th for Kubalik was highway robbery.

    Stan has also been really good in the international market bring guys over. He’s signed a couple guys recently who seem to have potential.

    with that said some serious questions loom with the roster and who needs to be paid and who’s over paid

    Hopefully Seabrook is in Seattle next year

    Same. However I’m going to forget about that once we start seeing Kane and Toews on the same shift around the 10 minute mark. Playoff hockey is the best.

    They skipped that Strome line a few times early in the third.

    It was overwhelmed on both those goals.

    oh well. #1 pick here we come

    The hawks have given up so many goals with one or both defense completely out of position, they have to been told to play this way

    Im pretty sure the Hawks scraped the system Jeremy tried to implement last season and went back to the system we used under Q.

    With that said... This team just isn’t good. The depth on this roster isn’t good. The defense is awful. If we are being honest Keith isn’t a 1st pairing defender anymore. I don’t see a single guy on the roster who could be called that. But he’s the best we have. Ideally he would be on the second pairing. And he’s only going to get worse. Honestly we probably only have 2 or 3 D men currently that belong on a title contender team. And they would fill 2nd and 3rd pairings.

    Stan has whiffed badly on replacing the defenders on this roster and if it wasn’t for Rob and Cory playing at unreal levels during the regular season this team doesn’t make the bubble.

    We don’t belong in the playoffs. This series is showing how very far we are from being in the conversation as a legit contender.

    Stan needs to overhaul the entire defensive unit. And if they means go with a youth movement and take lumps for a season so be it.

    the first 2 goals of game 1, the hawks had a defenseman above the dot chasing the puck. In game 2 on the first goal both guys were below the goal line, the third goal maata was almost at the point when they scored, on the 4th goal the D are matched up man on man both outside of the dots. That play gets fucked up because toews is coming over to play the man in the corner and neither defensemen are in front of the net. Whatever that system is, it sucks

    I think the issue is the players suck and they scrapped the old system because they hoped the vets (Kieth, Seabrook) could help transition the newer guys to the old system. But shit players will be shit players regardless of the system.

    Our defenders are shit. Plain and Simple.

    De Haan, Murphy, Keith are the only guys I would bring back to pair with the young prospects we have. And I’m not really sure I would really want the first two names I listed.
