exactly.

what is more impressive is when you watch them play your not seeing moments of unfamiliarity with each other out there. I really cant recall seeing a stretch of bad passes or "lost" in zone play as everyone seems to be really in tune with their linemates and defensive partners.

I think the passing has been crisp and accurate, and having the NHL package and getting to see tons of games so far, I without hesitation can say the Hawks are looking like the most cohesive team I have seen so far in the NHL period. I agree that talent has a ton to do with it, but if this team doesnt need a feel out process and has clicked from the beginning, this team is only going to get better as long as they stay healthy.
