when I was a kid, my arguement with Hawk fans was usually about whether whoever my hero was, was better than Bobby Hull. i'd usually come back with, oh yeah, Hull never backchecks. I have no idea as to whether this was true or not, I just wanted to win the arguement. Now its cherry picking, it used to be goal sucking, it was used to imply that someone was less than a complete player. The tB system calls for the 3rd man to head for an opening as soon as it looked like the puck pressure would cause a turnover. So far, it works for them and more power to them. I wouldn't be too quick to put them into an elite category yet, they look good but still have a lot to prove.
