    He has to feel he made a massive mistake turning down other offers to play here,he was a starter for eight straight seasons and reportedly good in the room from what I heard. I know he's pretty dam far from a difference maker and I also know he cleared waivers but waiving an older player half way through the year probably spooks a lotta teams and may have ended his career. Nobody will convince me he wasn't a number seven here(at least) and your always better off sittin' a vet instead of a kid anyway. CLEAN HOUSE! GO HAWKS!!!!!

    You're on the cusp of a playoff spot and your best player went down in December is accurate,it's also accurate to notice your best player was replaced with crap.....period. Man up,take the reigns and show the three stooges how it's done.....better off showin' them the door! There's no bigger Hossa fan than me but he was on the team that made consecutive 1st round exits if I'm not mistaken and he played on some great teams,with some great players before he joined Toews,Seabrook and Keith with nothing to show for it. CLEAN HOUSE! GO HAWKS!!!!!

    Not that it matters now but the Hawks didn't have six better D-men when they sent Franson down and they still don't,Bouma was more effective than a few of the forwards too. Decent game for Glass,I guess stooges seek their own level just like water! CLEAN HOUSE! GO HAWKS!!!!!

    Gotta replace the three stooges too unless you think the next coach can succeed with a collection of garbage in the net. Bebooby ain’t takin’ nobody on a cup run. CLEAN HOUSE! GO HAWKS!!!!!

    The thing I'd tell you and puck is this,no one has more respect for the hard working kid and the Canadian junior system than me.....just supportin' my peeps!LOL! GO HAWKS!!!!!

    If this was an unaccomplished group like the Caps,the Blues,the Sharks or one of the many other good teams that won nothing,I'd be a lot quicker to point my finger to be honest but they proved they could do it all with the proper leadership and support many times in the past. Sure there's a responsibility to earn that big paycheck but there's also a responsibility to be healthy and ready to go next year at this point and I think there's a good chance of it. I've pointed out countless examples of elite players having solid,bouce back seasons and those elite players are no better than ours and in most cases they're older than ours! I think we all realized this was a lottery team weeks ago,did anyone think it wasn't gonna be ugly? Every season is a re-birth! GO HAWKS!!!!!

    I've run into middle class folks who wouldn't pizz on me if I was on fire and I notice a lot of wealthy making massive charitable deductions.....er.....I mean donations LOL! They certainly do improve peoples lives though. I try to judge the individual my friend. I'd ask Foligno if Hayden cares about anyone but himself and then I'd ask him why he felt comfortable knockin' Rutta out of the game the next time the teams met,could be Hayden was busy caring about his team mates in Rockford at the time. . GO HAWKS!!!!!

    They've exhibited the upmost in accountability many times in the past,we can only hope they do again after this. I still see no reason this team can't do what the other cup winners teams did after their shitshows. GO HAWKS!!!!!
  12. Stan As Gm

    I appreciate our back n forth and your intellect level enough to say I'm surprised that you subscribe to a stereotype of any kind to be honest. Doesn't an Ivy league star,captain of his team rackin' up 103 big hits in 39gms and bustin' up the face of opponents who take a few too many liberties blow this stereotype out of the water? I don't know if Hayden's different and I don't know where his career takes him at this point but is there any doubt the kid's a tough SOB? GO HAWKS!!!!!
  13. Stan As Gm

    I'm more of a feed the poor guy than an eat the rich guy but income inequality will blow up in our faces.......it's only a matter of time. I do know quite a few middle class folks who absolutely screwed themselves into the ground becoming very successful,so it does happen and God bless em. I also realize that NOT having to screw yourself into the ground becoming successful due to privilege is a massive benefit and an unfair advantage. I do see Hockey as a great equalizer though,where else can middle class guys like us push some Ivy league kid's F'n face in the glass and beat the hell out of em if he doesn't like it?LOL! Might not try it with John Hayden though! Accountability is demanded on the ice no matter where in the world a kid plays IMO. GO HAWKS!!!!!

    Our philosophies don't differ very much on this issue but one of the life lessons I've learned is,everybody stands on their own two feet when they're 'before the man' regardless of social status. can a privileged upbringing result in a pampered individual? Yes,if the upbringing is faulty. Does pulling yourself up by the bootstraps result in a more determined individual? Yes,once again if the upbringing is a proper one. There's scores of middle class kids here who no longer have interest in construction/labor related jobs because they can't do em from behind a device and we're talkin' about good paying jobs. I've asked friends if their kids had any interest in coming out and helping me around my place for a 100 bucks.....never got a call back. I now have a Mexican guy who's here legally with three kids of his own and his only question is,"what's next'? He broke his ass to learn the langue and he told me that the Mexican work ethic is disappearing with the younger generation of Mexican/American kids,which leads me to believe were talking about a generational issue. I do see the advantage of the tough-nosed Canadian player and wish we had a few more myself and I see the differences between the CHL and other feeders but that still has nothing to do with John Hayden's parents owning a successful business because he'll have to stand on his own two feet now too. Hockey is a great equalizer! GO HAWKS!!!!!

    I understand that and I enjoy our back n forth even when it's contentious because you delve into issues that matter. As far as Nationalism,considering the American hockey development system and the NCAA a soft environment,unable to produce tough minded players is a very unfavorable comparison.......isn't it. As far as Big Buff,I agree. I had a chance to make his 'day with the cup' and the party afterward(along with the rest of Roseau LOL) and meet his Mom and Grandma. He was a kid who received a lot of community support but Grandpa did own a sizable trucking business which helped a lot! Buff was drivin' a Maserati Quatroporte(elite bastard)LOL! GO HAWKS!!!!!
