You can't play run and gun against Edmonton and not pay occasionally. They are giving the Oil respect because they earned it last year. Great game so far. Will be a decent rivalry in a few years.
Saad has looked awesome!
I'm not saying Chicago should play run-and-gun against them.. I'm saying Chicago should go right at them defensively. Challenge them at the line, have small gaps.. don't concede any part of the neutral zone and then when you force turnovers, get on them quickly.
Sharp has mainly rode Kane's coat tails - looking at his point total to evaluate his play is giving him too much credit
I'm not saying Sharp's been playing great.. but he has been snake bitten. Q should think about switching up Hossa and Kane. Give the #1 line a better puck distrubuter and give the second line a horse to win battles and create space for Sharp.
