  1. 12/14 Hawks vs. Jets

    That was an inspired effort and all we ask as fans who support the team. Hope they keep it up and bring the same fire against the wild. Go Hawks
  2. 12/12 Hawks vs Panthers

    Toews was much better than he has been lately hopefully he gets right and that alone could make a big difference.
  3. 12/10 Hawks vs Yotes

    They couldn't win 5 or 6 in a row if they played the Yotes every game. Its good to get 2 points but were only barely beating the worst teams right now
  4. 12/08 Hawks vs Sabres

    In beer leagues. Its hard to believe how far DK and Seabs have fallen in a couple years
  5. Joel Quenneville

    Maybe in his next contract year
  6. Okay Our Defence?

    If the don't pull their heads out of their you know where soon they won't have to worry about getting a first round broom job like last year
  7. Joel Quenneville

    Toews doesn't look like he can score even if he plays no defense at all
  8. Toews

    Mvr I'm not so sure 19 can score even if he wasn't expected to play on both ends of the ice. When the captain gets paid that kind of money he is supposed to go up against the others teams best and still come out on top like he has in the past. He's not that old but something has changed in his game and all we can do is speculate as to what happened
  9. 11/28 Hawks vs Preds

    Gotta agree Bob. Nashville is a good team and the Hawks played a good game against them even on a tough back to back. Normally Kaner would pot a couple of the grade A chances he had and the Hawks would have won

    While Schmaltz isn't a game changer he has speed and skill and is creating some scoring chances. Hartman could easily be replaced but the core is more of a problem right now. Hayden is solid and is making some plays. Forsling is looking good and might be our best defense man in a year or two. Our first line has to put the puck in the net a lot more if the Hawks have any chance in the playoffs and 7 is a shell of what he was a couple years ago. To blame the kids isn't really fair. Toews line is costing the Hawks almost 20 million per year and they should be showing the kids how its done not the other way around

    Keep playing the kids or we will never know how good they can be, better than trading them for another recycled older vet whose best days are behind him. Even when Dcat wasn't scoring he was hustling as much or more than the rest of the Hawks
  12. 11/25 Hawks vs Panthers

    I liked the jump they had last night. Looked faster and played with more desire than they have had in many games this year. Hope they keep it up. Go Hawks
  13. Toews

    Jack anyway you look at it 3 or 4 mil per year could only help the Hawks cause. While Kane has played the way we expect him to always dangerous with the puck and not much help on defense. I think we all expected much more out of our captain he is playing well below his pay grade. If the Hawks keep getting sent on early vacation they will have that much more time to enjoy their money.

    To me money isn't the most important thing in life. I moved away from home (Chicago) for work and lived on the gulf coast for 34 years. I was semi retired at 50 and fished 100 days a year in the salt. I'm back home now and will be a snowbird in a few years wintering on the coast and spending summers in Chicago. To me playing for championships every year would be more important than a few more million in the bank. I might be wrong but if the Hawks don't win anymore cups I think the players will be a little disappointed they didn't win more. I have plenty of money to live my life and glad I did what I wanted to instead of making more money.

    I couldn't help being disappointed when T&K took the big contracts because it doesn't take a genius to figure out they got too big a piece of the pie. I know they could have got more elsewhere and the NLPA wouldn't have been happy with them if they took less blah blah blah. How much do they get from their commercials? I think I've seen their Chevy commercials a couple thousand times at least. I'm sure it would make up for the money they would have lost by signing a lesser $$ deal. Maybe they would have got more $$ on the back end by winning more cups
