Talk about a deep team. If I were to tell you that Toews, Kane, Versteeg, Sharp, Buff, Keith, Seabrook, Campbell and Barker would have zero points, you would say the Hawks have no chance in hell of winning. Well they just spanked the Flames in Calgary 5-2.
Almost makes up for those years of no home games on TV and a half empty United Center.
My only reason for posting is that it seems pretty rare to have 0 points from your top 2 lines and 0 points from your Top 4 defensemen and still beat a quality team like Calgary decisively, pot 5 goals(1 EN) and in their building.
Maybe it happens more than I'm aware and it's not an indication of Chicago's depth.
High ankle sprain from a Dan Cleary hit the game before the Winter Classic.
He has struggled and I am sure it's not 100% yet. Most teams have figured out how to play him this year. Give him one really solid check and he starts to hear footsteps and gets pretty timid. I hope that this is just a phase and he will learn to fight through adversity.
