The 2013 Hawks are a different team than the 2010 team.
TBH its never been a team I properly understood. Some teams you watch and you understand how they're getting it done. Hawks to me just seemed to walk all over opponents with little opposition that year and who all seemed to be intimidated and put off their game. I saw very little compete from any of the clubs facing the Hawks that year.

Who do you find are the biggest missing ingredients. Versteeg, Campbell, Buff, Ladd? They've added some players as well.

I don't buy it as an excuse. Wings have had to fill the absence of the best player in hockey period. They keep marching on. The Oilers lost Gretzky, Paul Coffey, Andy Moog and still won a cup in 90. The Hawks have no excuse imo.
