Well --Eklund does not have us listed in the TOP TEN TEAMS TO BENEFIT FROM A SHORTENED SEASON (if we do get such)...
The implication I take from this is: we will either be in the mid-pack third of the league or finish disappointingly in the bottom third (uif that happend get the pink slips out--heads will roll)...
HOW can any unbiased hockey observer not have serious concerns about a Hawks disapoointment :
.neither Tows or Hossa have played since the lockout AND they happen to be coming off CONCUSSIONS..HOSSA turns 34 in January....
. if carbomb is again a top six LW in Q's books --that indicts that nobody else on the roster or in Rockford is better than him -what would that say ? Ugh!
Chicago,we have a problem! OR if they simply can't justify paying his $$$ as a fourth liner (too expensive)--what does that say about STAN's allocation judgement?
.If mr. -12 Leddy is back on D --yes he'll put uppoints BUT if the NET ES result is only -12 -tHAT is no great benefit at all,IS IT?
,goaltending--Crawford is not even top 15 quality --and so mediocre goaltending is going to put us in the top ten? I don't think so..
.Q did not crack the whip enough last year --and the loafers ruled the roost-ya think he's going to change this year ?I'm skeptical. The team survives on short outbursts of skill but rarely can sustain 60 minutes of "work" --like may other teams put out..
The poster boy for this was P. Kane who -as a result of less than his best efforts got only 66pts last year...To me he got satisfied when he got his 1 point (usually only an assist--fewer goals ---) then packed it in for the night...At minimum he sHOULD give us 20 more points --if he put forth sustained effort maybe he'd give us 30-40 more points..but I think he admired his fat bank acxcount more than living upto his talent ability..Is he going to be "dedicated" or loaf again? I'm skeptical till he shows me and shows more leadership BY EXAMPLE to get us wins in an evermore competitive league..
