Luongo is playing well albeit against some pretty limited offensive teams (Edmonton excluded)

He's shut them down for years. Don't **** with the formula, that's how you lose games.

The idea of Shaw's line taking on the Sedins is frightening from a Hawks perspective. I know it is easy to forget but those guys have a hell of a lot of offensive talent.

They did a hell of a job against a pretty good scoring line last night of Parise-Koivu-Heatley.

I'd be very happy to admit I undestimated them if it does work.

Can't wait to see that game. Just to see Bieksa sending a message jumping Krüger or Frolik from behind

I don't condone Keith's cheapshot, but it's hilarious how blind Canucks fans are and won't even admit that Daniel started the whole thing. He doesn't go after Keith's head, then the whole thing never would have happened. Keith was deservedly suspended, and they still won't let it go.

Thought he was overated in Florida and wasn't worth his contract

Good memory. I completely forgot about that till you mentioned it. Anyone have a video of it? Every time I look for it I just get results of when Keith hit Daniel.


edit: found it!

Ok everyone

Wishing injuries on players , Laughing at concussions , Bringing up Torres , Trolling opposing fan GDT's (Both sides have been doing it) will not be tolerated

Keep discussion on actual hockey news/events/etc related to tommorrows game

I can't believe he didn't get any suspension at all for that.

I'd rather this team pit the 1st or 2nd line against the Sedins. If they don't have the puck they are no threat at all. Truth is those two feed off of PP's. We play disciplined and that should be enough to keep them at bay.

Question for Hawks fans...

How has the level of physicality, size and grit level changed in the Hawks lineup relative to the last time teams met in the playoffs?

Factually speaking, the Hawks were overmatched in that department during the early part of the series... and was priority in the offseason for Bowman to address at the time..
I know there were a few changes in that department, but unaware of the overall picture and how it manifested itself on the ice since.

Point being, i think this game tomorrow will be an intense one.. as close to a playoff type game as you're going to get in week 2 of the reg season, and that usually means a very physical affair.

Overall skill level at the moment, there is no question of the Hawk superiority presently...
They should be favored to win... but how have the hawks fared so far the other departments...
And who do you expect to get the better of the physical play tomorrow night?

Hawks are alot softer

Literally dont hit very often outside of Bickell/Shaw/Hammer/Seabrook

Frolik and a few others try to hit but it really isn't successful

Hawks are more back to puck possession as primary means to cut down physical aspects of game

Keep puck away and stay a step faster then opponent there means to protect themselves.. Keep opponent struggling to contain transistion attack and not playing there game

The tough stuff is not really part of their game with the roster we have. And with a short season spending, I don't think focusing on that too much is a good thing. As stated above, puck possession is the key and what has worked for them. And will continue to instead of bringing up knuckledraggers with no skill that can only do one thing and it has little to do with hockey.

Dude two Presidents' trophies are way more legit than the Stanley Cup. Plus biting and pulling hair is how a real hockey player fights.

i guess after last year's humiliating exit, thinking about that time you made it out of the first round helps soothe the tears.
