  1. You are right, but I would add that Q shares the blame on this one with playing 7 D. You could see TVR shifting to the right side even though he was playing left D most of the game.
  2. Again with perimeter play and no sustained O-zone pressure. Team defense is bad, breakouts are on par with peewee hockey, loosing most of the board battles. There is no longer enough speed or talent to break down a neutral zone trap and play a decent dump and chase game.
  3. One line team.
  4. Yes, they need a kick in the a$$ for the effort they displayed, no question about that, but I think they would have lost regardless, probably with the score you mentioned. They have been grinding out wins with some great goaltending and a higher than average shooting pct. The result of this game is a combination of a lackadaisical effort and playing against a very good team. I can't predict the future, but my guess is that they bow out in the first round. Anything more than that would require a complete turnaround from #19 and amazing goaltending, barring an unlikely player trade that would bring in exactly what they need. For me Hartman and Hino pass the eye test and the underlying stats confirm it, moreso for Hartman than Hino. However, on a contending team they would be slotted in the bottom six.
  5. Don't really see it that way. The team needs 3 new players, at least one of whom is a top 6 LW, especially with the way Toews is playing. Hino and Hartman are alright and may be good players in a few years, but they are not top 6 material on a contender.
  6. It's not just one game, it's a game against a very good team that exposed every weakness the Hawks have.
  7. Meanwhile, our 10.5M Allstar Captain can't even win a faceoff. Nor pass the puck it seems.
  8. It's more like the years in between.
  9. Wish their cap hits showed up.
  10. I would, no need to waste resources at the trade deadline. Actually, I would be a seller at the deadline.
  11. Team speed is middle of the pack, team defense is average on the best of nights, the forecheck is of beer-league quality. They spend way too much time in their own zone and not nearly enough in the offensive zone. When they do manage to cycle the puck they stay on the perimeter with no threat to score from the middle of the ice nor the back end. These are problems that can't be fixed in half a season or at the trade deadline.
  12. Caps with more shots than Hawks on the PK.
  13. No second chances means no goals.
  14. They have problems and deficiencies that cannot be fixed in half a season.
  15. No way the Hawks come out of the west, let alone beat someone from the east in the final.
