Who is our whipping boy?
 
I think this thread could spark some interesting discussion. All of the people on this board (some more than others) use people as scapegoats. But who is this team's whipping boy?

I honestly have to say it is a tie between Michael Frolik and Marcus Kruger. Some people have Frolik love, some people have Kruger love. (Nudge, nudge, Bubba.) Both of these players have bright spots and I think we undervalue them.

Why can't we all just hate on DiDomenico and go home? :sarcasm:

DisgruntledHawkFan 05-26-2012 08:17 AM

Until July 1st, it's easily Johnny Oduya.

zytz 05-26-2012 08:43 AM

It depends, seems like a what have you done for me lately kinda board.

Most likely Hammer, Oduya, Kruger, Frolik. I think the only one that deserves it out of that group is Fro.
We really need more from Keith, Seabs, and Kane. I'm a little worried about Sharp living up to his new contract.

Edit: Also Bolland- this is the year he better step it up or he's got to go, shame though it would be.

Kitchen.

Sarava 05-26-2012 09:10 AM

Agree with Kitchen being the consensus...but for me it's probably Corey Crawford.

Kane :sarcasm:

It's Kruger without a doubt.

Bolland was one of the only bright spots in the post season this year. Frolik also.

You want Bolland to step up, tell Q to use him as the second line center. Skill aside, 40+ point seasons are what you get from a third line center in a shut down role.

Bubba88 05-26-2012 10:01 AM

Krüger, no doubt.

Hjammer, Frolik, Keith and Kane as HM

TorMenT 05-26-2012 10:42 AM

I know in the OP you mentioned Frolik and Kruger, but I think there's far more Crawford hate that has been going around lately. That and Kane hate. If you didn't say "player", then I would say most of the hate is at Q, Kitchen, and Bowman.

Atomic Punk 05-28-2012 09:56 AM

Frolik.....and all the input he should be given top 6 minutes. Muppets.

HockeySensible 05-28-2012 10:00 AM

Management = Bowman
Coaching staff = Kitchen
Players = Kruger at forward, Keith on defense and Crawford in net

There's all the whipping boys.

HawksTillDeath 05-28-2012 10:05 AM

Kane
Kitchen
Quenneville
Ketih
Hjalmarsson
Kruger
Bickell
Leddy
Oduya
Bowman
Crawford

That was actually my prediction before last season. Glad I was wrong.

No Fun Shogun 05-28-2012 10:25 AM

Kitchen.

ChiGuySez 05-28-2012 11:01 AM

My early vote, drunken alcoholic party boy who tried to step it up a notch last year but the only thing he catches is the flu every year because he doesnt get enough rest during the seasons b/c he'd rather be drinking and partying.

Toews & Hossa

TorMenT 05-28-2012 12:45 PM

Even Hossa has gotten a little heat though this year for "disappearing" from some people, and no that's not a reference to his injury.

HawksTillDeath 05-28-2012 01:34 PM

who is NOT a whipping boy?
Sharp, Toews, Seabrook, Bolland, Shaw, Hossa, Bollig .... thats about it

Bubba88 05-28-2012 02:38 PM

Sharp?
Bolland?
Seabrook?

there is enough of hate for them too

Rexy 05-28-2012 02:58 PM

I think the only person who is not a whipping boy is Toews. Everyone else gets **** on way too much on here.

I never said he didn't disappear, I'm just saying that comment has been made, just to prove that pretty much all players have been used as the whipping boy, except Toews.
