Coyotes fan coming over to CONGRATULATE Chicago & their fans on securing a play off berth
Originally from Chicago-land I have always liked the Hawks so I am happy for you guys!
GOOD LUCK IN THE PLAY OFFS! I hope you go far.
As tonight's game illustrated, if the Hawks don't play any better than they are now they won't be going far at all. We can't even play 2 good games back to back. How in the hell are we going to play 7???
That's just it. I don't think this team will do well at all in the playoffs given what I've seen the last 3 months. I've been waiting for the defense to consistently pressure the puck, Seabrook to quit playing like trash, Sopel et al to quit blasting ridiculous shots from the blue line, and our special teams to represent the talent that is on them. Right now I'm coming to the realization that it might not happen.
Every team has bad stretches every now and then. But when a team this talented plays like trash for the better part of three months, I'm not buying the theory that they can just turn it on. If this team starts to play like it can and has then I'll be the first to proclaim a run to the finals. But that team has been missing since January...
