That's the thing, people complain to complain. Oduya came here in a deal and the Hawks record has been the best in the NHL since. People hate the trade. So what type of player does Bowman need to acquire before people don't whine? Frankly, I think the end point is never. Just the other day I was venting my frustration with a Rangers fan about the Hawks recent play and he quickly put it in perspective "Dude, you have the best core in hockey and the best record in the league, stop whining, I'd die to have Toews and Kane on my team"

No, I think it is insane to want roster moves even if they get swept in the first round, not to anyone in top 6 or top 4, no ****ing way. We have a lot of excellent players. The ones we have are not the problem (DB, Hammer, TKK, Seabs, Sharp, Hossa, Saad, BB and Vik (if can be resigned), Leddy, Kruger, Shaw). If JO plays well, he stays. I'll leave it open for Crow. The goaltending has been an issue until we see better in the playoffs. That's the only logical possibility I really see. We have 90 percent of everything need locked in.

You can't honestly believe people would rather take over the 06 Hawks as opposed to the 2010 Hawks?

The top 6 last year, and the goalie were the only reasons we lost. Depth players will not be the reason this team will fail. The top 6 wasn't crap because they didn't have a 2nd line C, they had a ton of opportunities.

This team will win if the star players score goals, the goalies make the saves, and the coaching makes the right adjustments. We wonkt lose because we didn't acquire Derek Roy.

You can't possibly know that. We are weaker without him and will see what happens, plain and simple. I obviously like the team a lot and just want the key finishing piece. Trading those top guys, any of them, if they suck in the playoffs is not something I endorse at all.

We don't trade for anyone significant, how can you say that? Most of us unhappy with Bowman have said so often how we would praise him were he to add a 2C.

I'm going to have to go ahead and sort of disagree with you there.

agreed 100%

list our top players: Kane, Keith, Seabs, Hossa, Bolland, Sharp, Toews, Stalberg, Saad, Leddy, etc.. how many other teams can boast that kind of talent in their top 6-9 and top 4 dmen?? if these guys are playing like they are capable of playing, we shouldnt run into any real challenges until the quarter finals...

and if our goaltending plays anything like it has this year in the playoffs, the name Derek Roy wont mean crap-o-la when its all said and done.

if we lose, its because our top players didnt play their best every night like last year.

We don't need to trade for anybody significant because this team is number one in the NHL and will be golden come playoff time. I would've liked a 2C, but we didnt get one and I'm ok with that.

Like I said before I am neither for or against Bowman, but I'm not for firing the guy just because he doesn't make every Hawk fan in the world gleam with warm and fuzziness.

I'd say you are insane if you think this team wins the Cup with Crawford or Emery.

I assumed most would disagree with me, but the fact still remains that we have the number one team in the NHL and will be hooked up come playoff time and people are seriously whining and *****ing and wanting to fire the GM because he doesn't do what they think he needs to. These same people would find a reason to complain about a Malkin deal I know it as does everybody else that isn't calling for Bowman's head

That may be. I wanted someone better than Emery just in case but how can you argue when the team is winning so much. Still, it is a concern in all of our minds and has been for a very long time.

There is a difference between not being sold on a team based on the regular season and complaining about adding one of the 5 best players in the NHL.

There's a difference between not being sold on a team and acting like a completely irrational person.

And there's an even bigger difference between being "called" an irrational person and irrationally chastising someone for having a difference of opinion on a key issue.

Shall we go through your posts from yesterday? Again, what's rational about wanting to fire a GM when the team he runs sits atop the league? What's the rationale?

There is, but in the case of this thread the people that say Bowman should be fired are being WAY irrational. There's a difference between wanting the team to make a move to fill a hole that people say we really have and jumping off the cliff wanting the GM fired of the number one team in the NHL.
