No, I think you had it right the first time. I saw the photo below on Twitter.

4/6 O-6 teams will now be in the same division...Det, Boston, Mtl, TO.

If you were to go from watching the Hawks to the Rangers right now, youd wonder how we get through 5 minutes let alone 17 games.

Yeah, I'm so happy we don't play like that. Brutal, don't know how you guys aren't calling for Torts' head.

Ehhh, not as much as youd think, and certainly not now.

I personally get fed up with his stubborn tendencies and unwillingness to adjust. That will be his undoing here at some point.

Agreed 100% and he's done nothing outside the championship 10 years ago.

I'm surprised the team still listens to him...I've always figured his style of coaching would have a short shelf life

Ken Hitchcock mad.

Quote:
“I think there’s a bigger picture for me here,” Hitchcock said. “It’s not so much Vladi, it’s all the young players … who are in unsuspecting situations. It just seems like there’s a lot of young players that are getting hurt because experienced players know where they can catch them in vulnerable situations.

“I wish there were a way that we could let the young guys play a little bit and not try to put them in unsuspecting (positions). I don’t think in a million years (Tarasenko) thought he would get hit in that situation.”

Yeah, that is true. The best game of the day in my opinion was Winnipeg and Philadelphia and that was on in the afternoon. Still it is great that on top of the best record the Hawks also play an exciting style of hockey.

Yeah, that game would have been decent to watch if it were on at night... And no doubt.

I watched Winnipeg play the Flyers on CSN. It was a good game. Winnipeg has some exciting talent, and I really want them to make the playoffs just to hear how rowdy MTS Centre would be, but they're the Thrashers in a better hockey market. They just don't have what it takes. I mean, I knew that going in, but blowing a two-goal lead and losing ultimately by two gave me even more assurance.

Look like a team that is tuning out there coach (Only a matter of time til a guy like Torts and his in your face style causes issues)

Also they miss Anisimov/Dubinsky defense in there depth
