i dont think anyone minds losing to the hawks to help the tank
its one of those teams that we have never had a reason to hate

i always thought they were a great team... that unfortunately had to face a tougher pens team back in 91 or 92 was it?

chelios, larmer, roenick, EDDIE, smith, graham... ahh good old days

JDD gets the start tonight. Renney says Brule is unlikely for tonight. I haven't heard anything on Comrie. He looked fine Sunday and I heard he hoped to play tonight.

Hello everyone

Hawks are playing poorly on this road trip so the Oilers have a good chance to win tonight

As a Hawk fan I want a repeat of last year's 9-2 game but I worry about our chances tonight

1989 was when I became a big time Hawk fan (I was 4) , we lost to Flames in CF
1990 we took that 2-1 series lead and I thought we were gonna win,,,, Nope
1991 we had best record in NHL and lost to North Stars in round 1
1992 we lost to Pens in finals

That 4 year period was dreadful as a Hawks fan,,,, I didn't think it could get any worse and then Wirtz traded JR and the dark years set in

I hope your team gets Hall and has a quick turnaround ,,,, You already have the pieces to do it

Not one bet on the Oil. Anyone care to buck the trend?

There I'm down for 15 for the Oil, if they win, by some miracle of fate, I'll be rollin' in fat vcash loot.

I'm "bracing for impact".

The Hawks could potentially wipe the floor with us.

lol @ Moo. Now a total of 16 on the Oilers.

I'm waiting for last night's bets to settle so I can go all in on the Hawks.

I'm surprised the odds aren't more skewed. The Oilers should be like 2.30 dogs or something.

The Hawks may be playing kind of poorly but I'm just not seeing how the Oilers can beat them honestly.

Unless the refs ignore every infraction against the Oilers and make the Hawks play shorthanded for the entire game then we might have a chance. Even then it will be like climbing up a steep hill.

I did but only 39.

I do think we'll win 3-2.

I've seen worse investments. Shawn Corsi comes to mind.

I'm expecting the Hawks to be up 3-0 after 10 minutes.

glad to see you're so enthusiastic about this game! I love watching the Hawks, so at the very least I get that enjoyment out of my evening. It's all about simple pleasures
