  1. Krugers replacement

    I think Hinostrosa brings an energy this team could use right now
  2. '17/18 hawks outlook

    5 years ago, imo
  3. 10/12 Hawks vs Wild

    Minnesota is without Granlund and Parise and has not looked very good thus far. Hopefully the Hawks can steamroll them and increase their goals for/goals against spread tonight. Would be nice to see Kane get rolling again but I think the Wild will try to tighten their gaps and slow down the neutral zone. Either way, Hawks go to 4-0-1 imo
  4. '17/18 hawks outlook

    I'm probably different from most but I would rather see Saad and Sharp flipped. I'm not a big fan of Sharp playing with Kane. He shoots every time he touches the puck when a return pass is often a better option. I know many think there's no such thing as a bad shot, but Sharp will be near the bottom of the team in shooting percentage.
  5. Hawk Moves (Real Time)

    Haula is a very smart player and a better scorer than most people realize. His last year with the Gophers he was the leading scorer, not Bjugstadt.
  6. How Does Hayden Affect Overall Roster Next Year

    LeBlanc did have a lot of points but had nowhere near NHL speed and that will keep him off the roster imho. He does see the ice well and distribute the puck but will not be able to increase his speed enough to crack an nhl line-up long term.
  7. How Does Hayden Affect Overall Roster Next Year

    There were many better than LeBlanc in 13. He was probably the best example of a team leader but there were many better players that year.
  8. Kane for Scoring Champ?

    I think Kane will win but second place will go to Syd, not McDavid
  9. Artem Anisimov

    Agree Modry. I would like to see more of Vinny. Haven't felt that Kero brings the energy that Vinny brought. May be responsible in Q's system but he (67) doesn't seem to have much upside to me. Also would like to get a good look at Hayden to see if he can be a big center to replace 15 for now or into future. Hopefully AA will be back in due time. I thought he broke his ankle when I first saw the replay.

    I got to sit next to Kero's parents last year when he made his debut in Minneapolis. Very nice people, even for Yoopers!

    Written by a guy who obviously never played high level sports and has no understanding of the strain a long season(s) of a highly physical sport can have on a players body, and the recovery that is so necessary for replenishing the body, and obviously someone who has never taught a classroom of students.
  12. Panarin

    He is a special player
  13. Artem Anisimov

    Actually MVR, the time to completely overhaul the PP was a few years ago. But I do like your ideas, especially putting Anissimov in front of the net. I dont think Shaw has been very effective there.
  14. The Crawford Thread

    Not sure if I agree Lord. I thought defense gave up too many chances and were often caught out of position, especially Seabrook. Crow gave up two goals but he made so many spectacular saves that he singlehandedly shut down their scoring chances. Defensemen, not so much.
  15. Panarin

    Maybe Doogie but you know as well as I do that Q won't let a good thing ride.
