They do. If there's a style that beats the Hawks, it's a grinding team. Even a much less skilled team like Columbus played admirably against the Hawks this year along with the Ducks.

Boston is such a deep team, they are slightly less skilled. The Hawks might have the better superstars but I can't think of a team more deep then the Bruins.

You guys can overlook them all you want but they could easily win the Cup for a 2nd time in 3 years. Takes quite of bit of skill to accomplish that.

I love nearly everything about the Bruins, the fact they're from Boston aside. That's the team in the East I've feared all year, not Pittsburgh.

You know who else are a grinding team? The Kings.

Who? The last 3 years they haven't had a single player hit 70 points (not a single guy hit 40 this year). Lucic is a freaking donkey, not a highly skilled player. Same for Horton. Seguin is probably their most talented player.

Why not? Great venue and it should be a pretty good game.

You could send the $200 to me so I can buy Hawks/Pens Soldier Field tickets instead.

New Canes sweaters unveiled....



Homes are dull, aways are okayish, but both have their logos too high for some inexplicable reason.

Bottom is very different.



I like the old ones better. Tired of every team trying to look traditional.

That was my initial theory, and then I realized if I don't care about either team I can focus on the true meaning of the Winter Classic and get absolutely hammered.

why change your jerseys when the new ones will look worse?

I like the new Canes jerseys since they did away with the piping. I hate piping on hockey jerseys. Also, good for them for getting rid of the shoulder patches. Chicago was the first to do shoulder patches in '55 and damn near every team has them now. Get an original idea. Most of them clash with the design anyway.

I was listening to the Pens radio broadcast at work last night. Their radio guy was tearing in to Letang. Was funny hearing that. Hawks announcers don't do stuff like that.

The logo placement on the Carolins jerseys is atrocious. They should have gotten a pimp, sleek alternate to replace the (awful) black.

it doesn't help that their logo is ugly to begin with. although, i guess you can't really do a logo of a "hurricane" without it looking kind of dumb.
