I'd just like to say I'm looking forward to the next game between your boys and Anaheim. They make for entertaining games. I'll leave you guys alone now.

Ducks don't scare me. They just use their crappy ice by tossing pucks in the zone and on net for a bounce. Hiller was on his knees way too early a lot.

Keith was excellent out there tonight and I'm the guy who thinks his play this year, at least proclaimed by some, was vastly overrated. But until he can completely, and I mean completely overhaul his shot and work on his stickhandling ability, he needs to shoot and handle the puck as few times as possible. He either makes all the wrong moves or he fails at all the right ones. Either way he shouldn't be on the PP and shouldn't shoot the puck at all. It's embarrassing.

Not the whole time, but there could have been better persistence and awareness on a couple plays. They got burned twice.

Bolland maybe tradeable before the deadline. Seabrook has also been pretty infective much of the season.

This.

I'm more disappointed with the play of Bolland and to a greater extent Oduya and Seabrook. All things considered, especially impact on the game, I thought Oduya killed us and put us in a lot of bad positions. Keith and especially Hammer were having to do everything in the d zone.

How many ways are you going to say they ****ed up a couple times? We've established that they had a really bad minute in the third period. It happens. Again, that does not mean they were "going through the motions" or in a "shell".

The loss stings since it was just one bad minute in the last five that decided it. But in the larger scheme it just one regulation loss among the two others. Not a big deal, let the Ducks deal with the stupid hype the media has burdened the Hawks with.

And what's with the ire for Carcillo, he had a whooping 3 shifts the whole game, hardly worth getting upset over. Why even dress him if he's not going to play? Why not have someone that will play more than two and a half minutes and perhaps take some of the extra minutes that Kane was forced to play. Sometimes I don't really get Q.

It was entertaining. Both teams showed they can take it to the other when one doesn't have their foot on the gas.

Stupid title. If anything the hawks were playing too aggressively in the last 5. If Shaw had just gone for a change at the end of his shift instead of chasing the puck deep - and then having to change on the fly poorly - their 2nd goal rush would not have happened. And if Saad had simply chipped the puck instead of trying to make something happen, their 3rd goal wouldn't not have happened.

It wasn't Kane's night, -4 and missing an open net that his hands usually slam home. And the Hawks miss Hossa, Sharp and Bolland.

I'm not sure what's going on with Seabrookk this year. Slow and tentative are one thing, but his body language just screams "doesn't give a ****". Or at the very least that he's just out of it. Reoccuring concussion issues? It's just odd.

Otherwise I don't read too much into this game. A handful of awful individual plays combined with some bad luck = loss. It happens.

Listening to the post game show is hilarious right now. Judd Serod just argues with everyone. caller is right Bolland is not a Very productive second line centre. He's a skilled guy but he's not good enough.

Eh, still need a second line center. Bolland is most effective on a shutdown third line - one of the very best at it.

Liked the effort tonight, things didn't go the Hawks' way and bounces weren't so good. Kand and Toews both missed open nets. It happens. Played a very even game with a great Anaheim team, missing one more all-star than they were. Tough loss, move on to the next one.

I thought Kane was pretty good tonight. Nothing he could really do about being on the ice for all 4 goals though.

This roster is still half baked. With Hossa/Sharp out there's nothing underneath whatsoever. Bollig needs to be dispatched to dig holes in Siberia, Mayers/Carcillo waived, and many bullets bitten.

Anaheim is a far more complete team and it showed.

This is a really hard loss to take. We were taking it to em fairly good and then we just died in a span of a minute.

Rookie mistake by Saad was the difference.
He turned it over at his own blue line to Getzlaf and Selanne.

And that was the difference in the game. These things happen. Leddy must've given away 8 games by himself last year.

Agreed. What a shill. Is he on the team payroll or does he just not have a clue.

Far??? Nah, I don't think that's true.

I think they use their roster a little bit better and more wisely than we do. Bollig can do okay against lesser teams, but against teams like this he's a waste. Brookbank shouldn't have seen the ice, and Q should have Carcillo play 4th line if he was going to play at all. As it was we completely misused our roster and it really hurt us out there. Wasn't the sole reason why we lost but it sure as hell didn't help.

They'll keep Bolland since he's always ready for a good playoff run.

I thought the bigger issue was Oduya whiffing on a clear, which ultimately led to the Saad turnover. As a defenseman one of your biggest responsibilities late in the game is to effectively clear the zone. He didn't and it lead to the game winner. Oduya was whiffing on pucks all night long.

He's also the guy who was soft on the puck when Ryan carried it up for the shot. If you watched the guys that were effective: Keith, Hammer, and Leddy they were hounding the puck all night long. Oduya didn't and it lead to an unecessary shot which led to the rebound/tying goal.

Oduya was easily the biggest culprit for this loss. Not even close IMO.
