You could just tell how passive and timid the forwards were tonight. No passes were tape-to-tape. Lots of weak attampts at splitting the D...
It was just a horrible display of hockey.
However, they got a point on a night where a lot of teams ahead of them lost in regulation.
It's just at this point, what do we want out of this season -- mediocrity and no playoffs or tanking and a lottery pick?
not sure i really agree with any of this. Quite honestly, I think we were just overmatched against a team lightyears ahead of us. I wouldnt put that on the team, or the coach, i just give credit to that other club. They are fooking awesome. Watching the Hawks play is like watching near perfect hockey. its amazing really.
