    That's the problem.

    Hawks Moves 2018-2019

    Missed or not, it was yet another give-away for peanuts. Maybe Stan has a foster elephant at Brookfield Zoo that he's been feeding.

    ...and contracts without players.

    Unbeaten in the first five with all the issues. 8 of 10 points? OK, I guess I'll take it.

    😄 He's not the first small guy to play in the NHL and there have even been small guys who flourished. This guy is also kind of like a fireplug in his build and his game.

    Best wishes to you and him.

    That should allow for a more open lane. All strategies can be countered.

    That would be great MJ.

    Yes, it's not as effective as pressboxing in my opinion, but it'll do perhaps. If either of these fails, then he needs to put himself on a list for a heart transplant.

    Until he proves otherwise, Nick Schmaltz is overrated. There are too many things that he very often does not do: 1. Win faceoffs 2. Shoot the puck even when it's by far the best option 3. Play defense 4. Get his nose dirty (He is Mr. Fly) 5. Stand in front of the net Other than those issues, he's fine.

    There again, it's not just our D-men. We've got forwards--too many--that find defense as one of those things I do "when I'm in the mood."

    What happened was worse than that.

    It is true that the Wild outplayed the Hawks most of the game, but that shouldn't excuse the gift that it was. Somebody messed up royally.

    This was a hard game for me to swallow losing it as we did. In my opinion, you should never let a team tie a game while they're shorthanded in the last minute of the third period. All you have to do is play a defensive type PP. There's no freaking way they can score if you do that unless you make some unbelievably boneheaded error. However, it is nice for this team to have 6 of 8 points with such a porous defense and goaltending (although I thought Ward played well tonight).
