    During high school, I played junior hockey and still hold two league records: most time spent in the penalty box; and I was the only guy to ever take off his skate and try to stab somebody.

      • http://twitter.com/neo873 Neo

        I could. Saad with Kruger and Frolik becomes the Hawks third line which takes on an occasional checking role. Bolland and the Patricks splitting time between the first and third opponent lines. And Shaw’s line is now your fourth. I could see that.

    Hawks Defense seems to be improved this season over last season.

    • Z-man19

      I’ll take Late to the Party for $500 Alex

      • Toews still makes funny faces!

        The Answer is
        “Is Crawford’s statistical improvement a result of the defensive improvement, or is the defensive improvement a result of Crawford’s better statistics”

        • Z-man19

          I’ll let you and CNaS fight that one out

          • Toews still makes funny faces!

            I will through it out there here and now
            Crawford’s success this season is a mostly a result of the Defense not hanging him out to dry nearly as much. He is seeing much lower “Shot Quality” thus far into the season.

          • 10thMountainFire

            I cannot argue this. I gave it a shot… but I recall too many instances where he benefited from games of low-number quality chances. Emery, on the other hand…

          • Z-man19

            Can you define “shot quality”? I thought it was mostly luck

          • Flavius

            Can you define luck? I though it was mostly….wait

          • Toews still makes funny faces!

            Shot quality
            High = When Toews, Kaner Hossa shoot is an example of a high quality shot to “holy fuck why me” quality
            Low = When John Scott shoots (really he does at times) that is low quality.

          • Z-man19

            I require visual evidence of fluffy getting a shot on goal

          • 10thMountainFire

            I saw a game against St. Louis where he led the team in shots. No shit.

          • Toews still makes funny faces!

            Never said SOG, just a shot AT goal. A SOG by fluffy is between that of a UFO and Big Foot. Not sure if it is real or not, but some people are convinced one way or another it is or is not.

          • Z-man19

            So basically I can get a shot at goal from my couch?

    seriously now. whoever does audio for csn hawks games needs to lose their job, amateur work.

    • 4FeatherFanatic

      Ya it sounds like the rink mic was down for a bit

      • putmeinthemadhouse

        that too, but the audio is always out of phase. makes the announcers sound bad, and the ambience sound bad.

  • 2883

    I sometimes wonder what would happen if you were to put Bolland at C with Burrows at LW and Erat at RW…… How much hatred would occur

    • CozBullsFan

      That wouldn’t be fair to any team. All heads would asplode.

    • 10thMountainFire

      International law prohibits it. UN Security Council convened to authorize action against it.

    • Toews still makes funny faces!

      Satan is not a fan of competition.

    Damn. Coulda been doing laundry this period.

  • 10thMountainFire

    With the amount of time Nashville spent in our zone and the quality chances they ended up having, it’s amazing that we out-shot them by such a wide margin.

      Is this sarcasm?

  • ahnfire

      • Toews still makes funny faces!

        Apple and dog shit have allot in common.

        • 2883

          They both process data better than PC’s

          • mightymikeD

            ahh.. Mac vs PC.. instant fight.. it’s like the Hatfields & McCoys, except instead of toothless inbreds you’ve got label-conscious hipsters vs dorks who’ve actually bothered to find out how computers work.. everyone loses

        • 10thMountainFire
