I was actually impressed with the Hawks performance for the most part. This could have just as easily been 7-4 Hawks. A little lack of touch around the net...a couple bounching pucks that couldn't be handled. I thought Ladd should have shot instead of attempting that dish in tight to Sharp. The Campbell goal was marvelous. Incredible thinking for a defenseman to make that play. I can honestly say that there's no excuse for splitting up Kane & Toews. I don't like it even a little. Skille looked good, although his missed his backchecking assignment on the Redden goal. He skates well and has plenty of grit. He made a wonderful stickhandling play to set himself up for a shot between the circles that he just couldn't get by Lundqvist...but it was a nice play nonetheless. Byfuglien looks Thorntonesque on the puck. He's an absolute beast. I wouldn't mind seeing him on a line with Kane and Toews, with maybe a line of Havlat, Sharp, and Skille on the second. Just game one guys. Some obvious missed opportunities were the difference makers. We bury our chances last night, and the Rangers 4 goals are pretty immaterial. One final note...our transition game looks fantastic. Let's see how we handle Semin and Ovechkin this evening.

He is sharp but you have to realize that Hawks have two goalies under 12M a year. There is no room for error. Huet can not have such games. Zherdevs goal was never suppose to happen. Imo bad goal, there was another horrible rebound.

Huet is the kind of goalie that you will either love or hate after a game. He rarely has a "okay" game its either he has an amazing game or a sub par game. I think most of you guys will come to love that he's playing for you guys. That being said I don't think he is worth what he is getting paid but hopefully he'll live up to the contract. Hope you guys have a great season you guys are my "second" team.

Goat? Campbell had a great game.

Maybe we use the word "goat" differently.

I switched it to Huet a little while back. There wasn't really one big goat from that game, as the NYR just had a great game.

I just wanted to throw my two cents in that I agree with this. It goes hand in hand with Savard's wacky lines. Remember at the beginning of last year Kane and Toews would just go back and forth and back and forth all game? They got suffocated a little it once everyone got tipped off about it, but you'd think it's a no brainer to stick those two guys together. Sharp seems to score from anywhere and there's no reason why Sharp-Toews-Kane shouldn't be our first line.
