    • Steveholt

      Honey badger don’t give a shit

  • niuhuskie224

    Let’s go Hawks!!!!

  • Z-man19

    YEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSS! Hockey is back.

  • barnum22

    yea baby hockey

  • Hawkeytalk

    Hockey is back! Shiny new season! And now that I have a new better gig, I finally subscribed to the Indian. Yay!

  • DesertHawk

    And here we go.

  • Dobs

    hawkey

  • pierzynskirules

    how about we take that cup from you?

  • ahnfire

    LIES, THE CUP BELONGS IN CHICAGO.

  • Hawkeytalk

    I wonder of they will announce the L.A. kings Twitter.

    • DesertHawk

      They should’ve

  • ahnfire

    HAWKS JERSEY!

  • DesertHawk

    Anyone else feel like there’s an inordinate number of people associated with the Kings name Ryan? Don’t they have several players named Ryan, too? Or am I thinking of another team.

    • birdhead

      It’s not just the Kings. I’m pretty sure you could build an entire hockey team out of players named Ryan. And it wouldn’t be a terrible team, either.

      • DesertHawk

        Well the Kings also had several support staff named Ryan. Good observation though. :note to self for second child:

  • Dobs

    gary bettman is gonna drop down from the ceiling dressed as bowser and cancel the season right before the puck drops

    • DesertHawk

      Sorry hockey fans, your sport is in another season!!!

  • Toews still makes funny faces!

    This is gonna take forever and I need to go back to work in an hour! (Sad Panda now)

    • DesertHawk

      Sick day!!!

      • Toews still makes funny faces!

        That would fly like Scott centering the Power Play!

        • Z-man19

          Stan traded him before Q tried it, I’m sure it was on the agenda

          • Toews still makes funny faces!

            Thank the Hockey Gods (Toews and Hossa) for that!!!

        • DesertHawk

          Religious Holiday?

          • Toews still makes funny faces!

            Senior Chiefs (E8) don’t get to use those when your CO’s boss says I want to review your shit!

          • DesertHawk

            I don’t envy you. I’m retired as an E5, and if my body hadn’t tried to kill me I was gonna try and commission around E6, with the goal of retiring as an O3E

          • Toews still makes funny faces!

            That would have been sweet!

          • DesertHawk

            Sadly, an O3E makes more than an E9, with about an nth of the responsibility.

  • Hawkeytalk

    Is it just me, or are they hardly applauding at all?

    • stacie7

      Have a feeling NBC mutes some of the crowd volume

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      It’s LA.

      • Roland2327

        Trust me I live in LA and have gone to a few games at Staples and it can get loud. As loud as the UC? No, but still loud.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    First game of the season and it feels like October outside.

    • Toews still makes funny faces!

      Yeah, it got down to like 65 last night!

      • Z-man19

        Go back to work asshole

        • Toews still makes funny faces!

          LOL!

  • DesertHawk

    I really really hate this song.

  • Toews still makes funny faces!

    Staples Center needs to accidently play some Chelea Dagger right about now!

  • pierzynskirules

    this is killing me.

    • DesertHawk

      Didn’t our team do the whole cup kissing raising thing, right after we won? I don’t remember them passing it around again at the banner ceremony…

      • pierzynskirules

        me neither.all the excessive mess is pure california.

        • Z-man19

          This can only be good for the hawks, wear me out

      • barnum22

        no tazer skated it out and put it on a stand at center ice

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    I read Hamlet. It didn’t take as long as this presentation.

    • Toews still makes funny faces!

      Still more gooder than Bahstun’s last year!

  • DesertHawk

    And then someone drops the banner…

  • ahnfire

    our ceremony was better.

    • girlphoenix

      definitely

    • Toews still makes funny faces!

      Water is wet and you are not Marian Hossa!

    Kaner what a pass

  • http://twitter.com/ChiNativeSon ChicagoNativeSon

    “Great play by Hossa!” Never gets old.

    Enough with the back door already.

  • ahnfire

  • DesertHawk

    KANER!!!!!

  • pierzynskirules

    KANER!!!!!!!1

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    What a bulls eye

  • Toews still makes funny faces!

    Hawks PP is 100%

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      50% in 1 second

      • DesertHawk

        Statistics can be a bitch.

      • Toews still makes funny faces!

        Half the time they are 100%

  • putmeinthemadhouse

    That. was dirty.

  • http://twitter.com/ChiNativeSon ChicagoNativeSon

    Woot! One of my predictions came true so far. Now for a 4th line goal – although I’ll settle for 1 from each line and DLR.

  • JRF

    Nice Kaner. Nice.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    I am impressed with the new clown shoes. Good movement, several good chances.

  • http://twitter.com/LBlissettUSA Luther Blissett

    So… what’s the best way to keep up with comments? Any hints?

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Choose Newest under the Discussion menu and hit the refresh bar (There are 5 new comments)

      • http://twitter.com/LBlissettUSA Luther Blissett

        Thanks… working thus far. Just gotta get a hang of it with the site switch.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Now the PK gets a chance.

  • Z-man19

    Looks like they glued Crow to goalpost

  • Toews still makes funny faces!

    Return of the Hawks PP?

  • ahnfire

    Frogger getting feisty against Frazzle

  • ahnfire

    oh Panda…

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Okay, clear it already.

  • http://twitter.com/ChiNativeSon ChicagoNativeSon

    Hawks scored the 1st goal of the NHL season. Next goal: score the last.

    • DesertHawk

      Oh neato!!!

      • DesertHawk

        Kaner now has a first and last goal :D

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      In OT of game 4

    • Z-man19

      And that wins us what exactly, a door prize?

      • http://twitter.com/ChiNativeSon ChicagoNativeSon

        Um… In mid-summer.

        • Z-man19

          Yeah, in the finals but doesn’t mean we get the shiny thing

  • Toews still makes funny faces!

    You know what? Kaner’s goal was pretty fucking nasty.I like that!

    • Hawkeytalk

      I still haven’t seen it actually go in. I’m out of shape too.

  • Dobs

    sharp is still unrealistically handsome so theres that

  • Z-man19

    Have we seen our bottom pairing?

    • Roland2327

      Brookbank has been out there

  • Lafferty Daniel

    It’s surprisingly not as sloppy as I imagined it would be (so far).

    • ahnfire

      still a bit sloppy

      • stacie7

        but I agree- better than I was expecting

    • http://twitter.com/LBlissettUSA Luther Blissett

      Two teams which haven’t changed all that much over the last seven months… that’s my guess.

  • DesertHawk

    Why they show us that!!!
    :winces:

  • ahnfire

    GAH DON’T SHOW ME THAT AGAIN

    • pierzynskirules

      i’m so glad i wasn’t watching tv.

    • KingTalkyTiki

      Still pisses me off months later.

  • Z-man19

    Oh good Bollig is out there, that’s a relief

    • ahnfire

      seriously. what would our players do without Bollig to protect them?

      • Toews still makes funny faces!

        Score more goals maybe?

      • Roland2327

        All jokes aside he didn’t have a bad shift

        • ahnfire

          true. I’m going for the low expectations for him, shaw & carcillo.

          • Roland2327

            Smart then you can’t be disappointed. They can only meet or exceed expectations.

      • Z-man19

        Our PP is our enforcer remember

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Did someone tell Shaw, “Just throw it at the net every chance you get.

  • ahnfire

    aww cycling.

    • ahnfire

      not that it did anything but look, they know how to cycle.

  • Lafferty Daniel

    yes

  • Toews still makes funny faces!

  • CozBullsFan

    PANDA!

  • ahnfire

    PAAAAAAANDA!!!!

    oh shit, my brother is going to be so mad at me. I told him there’s no way this game would score more than 5 goals.

    • DesertHawk

      Yeah he might be mad…

      • ahnfire

        yea….

  • pierzynskirules

    hmmm panda bear hossa.

    Hawks look awesome save Oduya.

    • http://twitter.com/ChiNativeSon ChicagoNativeSon

      Oh, so HE’S in goal. No wonder they’ve got a shutout.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Hey LA

  • http://twitter.com/ChiNativeSon ChicagoNativeSon

    And there’s the 4th line goal. Now let’s get the DLR we missed out on last season out of the way too.

  • pierzynskirules

    what lockout?

  • Hawkeytalk

    Would have lost a bet that fro would score before captain.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    We are winning puck battles. Me like,.

    • Z-man19

      LA is still in bed

  • Toews still makes funny faces!

    Is it fair to have Toews and Hossa on the ice at the same time?

    • Z-man19

      No and I like it that way

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Linesman with a dirty hit on Kaner. Suspend him.

  • Dobs

    2 for interference on mr linesman there

  • http://www.facebook.com/derlemke Mark Lemke

    Crawford, hey he made stop. Progress

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Shaw, No retaliation in center ice.

  • Z-man19

    Weak penalty

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      The call or the action

      • Z-man19

        The call

  • Wayfaerer

    Why do the Kings play the chimes from my grandma’s clock?

  • Roland2327

    Craw has looked good. Lets see how he does on this PK.

  • ahnfire

    CROW!

  • Toews still makes funny faces!
  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    And a kill

  • Roland2327

    Does the play by play guy not know seabrook from brookbank?

    • DesertHawk

      Wouldn’t surprise me.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      He’s too interested in his 1990′s anecdotes.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Crow. Whenever you come out to touch the puck, just ice it.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Shoot it, Bicks. How often you gonna get in that close one on one?

  • ahnfire

    aww Bicks.

  • pierzynskirules

    3-0 works for me.

  • http://twitter.com/LBlissettUSA Luther Blissett

    Well the ’85 Bears would have been up 19-0 so, okay period from the Hawks.

  • Z-man19

    Is GP providing stats again this year?

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    First Period.

  • http://twitter.com/LBlissettUSA Luther Blissett

    THEORY: The Kings aren’t playing well because they just found out that their intern girlfriends aren’t dead and it was all a hoax.
