as a nucks fan, best thing i can say about this years Chicago team is that they can take a hit. and no this isnt a dig at torres or seabrook, im talking the whole series, theres been a lot of clean punishing checks.
As for my compliment, the Hawks are still scary despite what the series score looks like. I always have a feeling that they're never out of it. Only when the clock strikes zero and we have a lead will I feel comfortable.
The Hawks are still one of the scariest teams on the ice, even without all the depth and with a pretty mediocre regular season behind them.
Any team that can put Toews, Kane, Hossa, Sharp, Keith and Seabrook on the ice at once with the goalie pulled is a team that can tie it up and win it. I've never felt safe with any lead in this series, and thats a huge complement to the amount of top-end talent this Hawks team still has (and will have for a long time).
Devils aren't in the playoffs so I'll say something about all the teams I started out rooting against/not rooting for.
1 - Canucks have yet to play their best and are still up 3-0. Pretty unreal.
2 - LA is no pushover and Doughty flipped the amazing switch for game 2.
3 - Phoenix has the best PP in the history of ever.
4 - Mr. Underwood is awesome/I hope Teemu Selanne plays for 10 more years*
1. The Rangers never give up, never surrender, and NEVER BACK DOWN!
2. I like all of Buffalo. Just want Philly to win.
3. Carey Price is no joke.
4. Matt Cooke isn't on the ice.
* I like both Nashville and Anaheim and aren't rooting for either side, maybe 55/45 in favor of Nashville getting their first series win....
