i cant recall a soft team making the playoffs and actually going far except the Red Wings who have way more talent than this team....Hawks arent a huge team but they always back each other up when it calls for it.. they have grit and heart. if someone knees Brad Richards, and you think anyone on his line would drop the gloves to stick up for him, nope i dont... maybe J.Moore and Dorsett later in the game, but that is about it....
What??? In one breathe you complain they don't back each other up, and then in the next breathe you are complaining Richards was throwing punches? You need to take a step back and figure it out.
Hagelin ran Okposo. Clutterbuck went after him. Richards defended him.
Zucc laid a bad hit on Grabner. Staal and other rangers rushed in to defend Zucc.
All you do is complain, complain, and complain again about team toughness. This team struggled to identify themselves with the new system to start the year. They are still adjusting but getting better. When you are more comfortable with the system everything comes together. I thought the team toughness was absolutely there on Tuesday night. They brought it every period. They played hard all 60 on the second half of a back to back. It was a great effort.
