    Decided last minute to go tonight, tagging along with my buddy from Detroit and +1.

    They already had tix. Found a singleton on CL for $10, get in everywhere else was like $25.

    Drinking alone and $5 burger haps at Beer Bistro now.

    Would have been a nice buy-low addition.

    Just have to hope some of these kids finally make a contribution. They only have 6 forwards who are definite NHL players. I don't really think we can count Panik as one.

    Bottom 6 loaded with youth, someone out of that group needs to emerge early on in the season.

    That top line... :meh:

    Of course, Kane's line is really the top line but thankfully the rest of the league regressed as well. Still a solid group of non-:fagot:

    Hard to believe McNeill can't at least get 10 games on that 4th line of nothing, but he must be Bickell part 2. Too bad because playing Tootoo really doesn't help them in any way.

    Overall, I like the defense, but the forward group is probably 2010-2011 caliber at best.

    Well, I guess it's line blender with the D pairings tonight.

    That 4th line for the Blues shares a dumpster with Hunter Pence.

    Defense looks solid once Hammer is back in. TvR is a strong backup in case one of the rookies has growing pains. I'd like them to give Forsling an extended look to see what he has, which has been the indication so far.

    Forward lines will be interesting to watch. Hopefully one of the young guys like Schmaltz can work himself into the top 6. It would also be nice to see Hossa eventually join that shutdown line with Kruger and Motte/Desjardins as well.

    25% PK and will remain near the bottom all year. Just trash.

    About to be 20%. TVR needs to go off and die somewhere that's not here.

    Just finished the game, started late as I was breaking fast. What happened to the team that played in the 1st period? 2nd started and it was a completely different game.

    Real good shot at starting 0-3 :poo:

    Things will be a bit different when Hammer is back in and TVR is assigned to Hunter Pence's Maytag refrigerator box. But right now, the Hawks are a borderline playoff team even in a weakened West. Hopefully some of these young guys develop before they're too far out of it.

    Also, Tootoo was -9 and not on the ice for any attempts by the Hawks in 4 minutes. That's Q pretty much showcasing the suckdom before benching him for eternity, which is good.
