    MOAR HAWKS GOALS

    MOOOOOOAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRR

  • pierzynskirules

    MORE HAWKS GOALS!!!!!!!!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/michael.scott.549221 Michael Scott

    Now we all knew Hossa was good already.
    But maybe that hit knocked him into hyperdrive, and he had to sit out because his body couldn’t handle the raw power and needed to adjust.
    Just my theory.

  • ahnfire

    ALL THE GOALS FOR THE HAWKS. FUCKING NOTHING FOR THE YOTES.

    • KoalaKowalski

      Yea tell em ahn!! Fuck the Yotes!!

    • Z-man19

      I concur

  • 10thMountainFire

    Marian Hossa is going to be a Hart finalist this year.

    • KoalaKowalski

      Can only hope so, he deserves it.

      • 10thMountainFire

        You see, the way it works is that you hurt him badly and he comes back better. He’s like, Jesus or something.

        • KoalaKowalski

          Or a T-1000?

          • 10thMountainFire

            Better… he’s a Panda.

          • KoalaKowalski

            All the poor sugar cane and bamboo….

      Kane might be as well, the way he is playing.

  • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

    [re-rack from last thread]

    I think there’s gotta be a way to work with Disqus. Sites wouldn’t
    run it if it was not of some use. But there’s gotta be a FAQ or
    something on this here site so that we all can be power users and shit.
    For example: how to have comments automatically feed, and to not have
    the comments freeze up if you click the “LOAD 52 NEW COMMENTS” box.

    All in favor, say “aye.”

  • QCBlackhawk

    Oilers win over Cafucks in SO ^_~

    • Woods

      Oilers could be scary…soon. Especially when you look at what they did to the Hawks last year….

      • 10thMountainFire

        …and the season prior.

      • QCBlackhawk

        I don’t know what you’re talking about. We didn’t have a road trip through Alberta last year.

  • Accipiter

    Wasn’t paying attention to either 1st or 2nd period threads here(so don’t know if it was mentioned), but that play by Bolland on the PK to drag Sharps broken stick into the passing lane was absolute genius.

    • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

      Fels was waxing about it on the twitter dot com

      • Accipiter

        Smart man.

    • http://twitter.com/326BureauChief 326 Bureau Chief

      This “Bolland as Second Line Center” thing might be a thing.

    • 10thMountainFire

      …and very ‘Bolland-like’.

    • justforkicks

      wouldn’t be the first time he’s done it. i love him so much. bolly for life

      • dirkgrahamsmustache

        Makes me even sadder at the thought that we’ll probably lose him next year…

        • justforkicks

          i don’t even want to think about it =(((

      • 10thMountainFire

  • Gozer the Traveler

    bollig will never sit for mayers, but he needs to sit for mayers. if he did, we’d be rolling four seriously solid lines. i’ve been really impressed with shaw at 3C. i haven’t heard his name much, which means he’s doing his job.

    • justforkicks

      the 3rd line is kruger-shaw-frolik?

      • Gozer the Traveler

        bickel-shaw-stals, i thought.

        • justforkicks

          shit you’re right. i’m getting so confused.

    • Joe Banks

      Well? We’re waiting…

      • Toews still makes funny faces!

        see all below!!!!

  • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

    Oduya 2 assists and is +2 looking pretty steady

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      The entire D is looking good.

      • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

        It’s nice to not have any John Scott fucking up our D pairings

        • Sparky_The_Barbarian

          Also nice to see Hammer, Oduya, and Leddy playing hockey, instead of whatever they did much of last year.

        • Z-man19

          That, what Chester said

  • justforkicks

    how’s saad doing? keep forgetting about him. i’m watching him but not noticing him at all

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Solid.

      • justforkicks

        cool thanks. my eyes just keep going to 19-81

    • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

      looked really comfortable skating with the top line, right at home

      • justforkicks

        sweet!

        • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

          Has had a couple of nice no-look passes. Some nice chemistry going on

    • kcrvpn

      I don’t think he has any points, but I have noticed him making the correct plays and haven’t noticed him screwing up.

      • justforkicks

        all we can ask for

    • Joe Banks

      He’s made some good plays, excellent passes

  • Joe Banks

    Go Hawks Go!

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Okay, honest question here. Somebody help me out with this…

    Q’s offensive system supposedly revolves around cycling (no pun intended). So, why do they seemingly give up on the cycling when they get a man advantage, passing back and forth while standing still instead of actually MOVING very much?

    • Hi, I’m Bob LeDonne

      Mustard face

      • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

    • 10thMountainFire

      The smell of Raffi Torres in the stands.

      I would love to see him wave to Torres at the end of the game.

    I never thought I would enjoy anything as much as watching Mike Smith shit all over himself in this game.

  • derlemke

    whoops i meant bolly

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Reverse of last year. They score, we answer in a minute.

    • Z-man19

      You not in mid season form, you’ll come around

      • ahnfire

        I haven’t gotten to ban anyone yet either.

        Want to be the first to be banned with a rusty banhammer? ;) might want to get a tetanus shot after though.

        • 10thMountainFire

          I’m calling OSHA.

          • Z-man19

            I’m calling witness protection

        • Z-man19

          And I’m always so nice to you :P

          • ahnfire

            that’s why I gave you a forewarning. And even suggested a tetanus shot.

          • Z-man19

            So gracious, thank you ma’am

  • pierzynskirules

    smith is angry..so what

    • 10thMountainFire

      He falls down when he’s upset or doesn’t get his way.

      • pierzynskirules

        he’s going to cry later

        • 10thMountainFire

          …maybe sooner.

          • pierzynskirules

            ha!

          • 10thMountainFire

            …and he makes me look prescient. Thanks, Mike.

          • pierzynskirules

            he says fuck you!

          • 10thMountainFire

            Did he fall down and cover his face after he said that?

          • pierzynskirules

            yes

          • 10thMountainFire

            Then it was authentic Mike Smith. I’ll head to the box and await my suspension.

          • pierzynskirules

            perfect

  • QCBlackhawk

    I’m confused. Am I watching a replay of last year’s Philly Pitt series?

  • Hawkeytalk

    Wow, just like yesterday.

    Mike Smith. The shadenfreude is strong in this one.

  • Hi, I’m Bob LeDonne

    New year same shit from Foley

  • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

    That’s sort of the perfect Bolland goal: The goaltender can only watch as it slowly flutters in

    • ahnfire

      a troll goal.

      • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

        (in a Foley voice) exxxxactly

      • kcrvpn

        Thats perfect — all Bolland goals should be troll goals

      • KingTalkyTiki

        Need to pay the troll toll to score a troll goal?

  • Joe Banks

    Go Hawks Go!

  • 10thMountainFire

    I recall Bolland going through a similar start to last season.

  • Toews still makes funny faces!

    FUCK YOU SMITH!!!!

  • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

    nice pass Roz

  • http://www.facebook.com/coachgottlieb Sheldon Gottlieb

    I wonder what Smith would hVE DONE IF sTALLS BURRIED THE BREAKAWAY

    Fuck Clownshoes, how about Fucking shoes. you know, SCORE!!!

    • QCBlackhawk

      No shoes for that, only business socks.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Wow, get a PP goal and the Clown Shoes are back.

  • frictionjane

    I was starting to wonder when Dunc would have a shot blocked

    • Joe Banks

      I was thinking the same thing. “His first shin guard, 2013″.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    A little more hustle, guys, the game ain’t over.

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    So much for this “new, improved PP”!

    • 10thMountainFire

      It’s like the Bears’ new and improved offense.

  • kcrvpn

    If we don’t win the initial face off clean, our power play is just a waste of time.

  • ahnfire

    Frogger just grabbed Doan. OMG Frogger, you’re going to hurt yourself. Be careful!

    • justforkicks

      he’s seriously earned this nickname

    • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

      may the unibrow protect you

      • ahnfire

        Frogger = Kruger, for his tendency to throw his tiny body into traffic without compunction.

        • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

          Shit, I’m all off with my nicknames.

          Lol, like Fro could even keep people away from Kruger

  • Joe Banks

    passing is really, really, important…

  • frictionjane

    Seems like the boys are more willing to pull the trigger so far this year

    • Toews still makes funny faces!

      Seems to result in more goals thus far. Lesson perhaps????

  • dirkgrahamsmustache

    Leddy looks so much improved in his own end!

    • Joe Banks

      I agree. Me like.

      • dirkgrahamsmustache

        We kept hearing about how he didn’t stand out in Rockford. Perhaps he primarily concentrated on shoring up his defensive play?

  • Chesterfield King (Chelsdag)

    jesus emery

    • 10thMountainFire

      If he was Jesus, he would have stopped that shot.

  • 10thMountainFire

    How many times has the post saved Razor’s ass tonight?

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Irony: That’s not a shot on goal.

      • 10thMountainFire

        Yep.

      • Toews still makes funny faces!

        That is “iron” irony right there I tell you!

    Seriously, if anybody knows or can develop a commenting system that is more made for how fluid it is for what we would like, I say let the ToS know for the CI. Disqus is not all bad, but it is not a fast and user friendly for how it is being used here.

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      Actually, I’m getting used to it. Only thing I miss is being able to post animated gifs.

      • Toews still makes funny faces!

        It is not bad, but something that allows for faster use would be nice and pics of course! lol

      • Z-man19

    • Accipiter

      I don’t like that they have Taresenko.

  • flavius

    I gotta go see if Tortorella’s post-game presser is online

    • justforkicks

      why, did something fun happen?

      • http://www.facebook.com/hair.helmet Hair Helmet

        They lost and Tortilla is always good in a losing presser

      • flavius

        If you haven’t seen it….he was remarkably calm but brutally honest about his team’s poor play in the first two games….Torts gives good pressers.

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    Night, all. See you Tuesday after NCIS

  • Hawkeytalk

    The interesting thing about the tight schedule is that Q will be forced to play all his players most nights. He will have to keep toi more balanced than he typically does. I really like what the third line did tonight, but the top two dominated when they were on the ice. This should be fun to watch.

  • Joe Banks

    I like this Roszival guy…

  • 2883

    Rozsival looked good enough to play again on Tuesday night.

    • justforkicks

      2 assists tonight! plus TOI of 16:15

      • 2883

        He was skating with Leddy most of the night, It looked (felt) like we had a lot more even distribution of time on the blueline

        • justforkicks

          definitely:

          Keith: -2, 21:52

          • Z-man19

            I’ve heard it, I can’t believe you used it, you going soft?

          • Toews still makes funny faces!

            Um, are you fucking kidding. Because I use one fucking kids term I get the bullshit accusation of going Fucking Soft. What type of Milbury Bullshit is that accusation for?

          • Z-man19

            That’s better, lets move on

          • Joe Banks

            Oh no, you went Milbury on him!

    • 10thMountainFire

      The guy blocks shots. That’s his job. He’s going to be valuable in the playoffs.

      • Joe Banks

        THIS. Please, more Roszival.

        • 10thMountainFire

          He’s like Sopel but not.

  • justforkicks

    WINNERS! I do so love to win

  • 10thMountainFire

    1. Bolland had a similar start scoring-wise last season.
    2. Still not enough sample to evaluate the netminding but once Crow gets a few more games under his belt, we’ll have a better idea as to what kind of goaltending we have to rely on this season.
    3. Leddy and Hammer have been exceptional. Oduya has been very good. Seabs/DK have been Seabs/DK.
    4. Hossa.
    5. Hossa.
    6. Hossa.
    7. Stalberg looks like he has found some nose for the net to go with his outstanding speed.
    8. Kane. Great start to the season. Very impressive.
    9. Toews hasn’t even started yet and we look great. How wonderful will it be when Johnny hits a stride?
    10. Special teams have been… improved.

    • mightymikeD

      Bickell looks to be up for it as well.. dare I say it “Using His Size”

      • 10thMountainFire

        Aye. I’ve always thought that Bickell could surprise some people.

        • Accipiter

          He’s a pretty big dood.

          • 10thMountainFire

            If he would only use that force for good…

          • Joe Banks

            That’s because he grows on you.

          Where’s CNS to pat himself on the back when you need it?

    • Z-man19

      The PP looks like they are working to score not expecting to score. A lot more effort going into making that happen. I’d add Kruger to your list, he’s doing his job

      • 10thMountainFire

        I have also liked what I have seen of Kruger. He’s very capable of filling that 3/4C role. Though I like him more at 3c.

        • ahnfire

          yay Frogger <3

        • Z-man19

          And he allows Rat to play 2c

          • 10thMountainFire

            …which I am starting to warm to. 3 points does that.

          • Z-man19

            About 40 Moar will do nicely

          • 10thMountainFire

            Request approved.

    • TheFullAmonte

      I would add Hossa to your list one more time.

      • 10thMountainFire

        I have to convene a UN Security Council session to do that.

  • Hosstown5000

    And boom goes the hossbollah

  • Joe Banks

    Very impressed with Saad tonite. After Tazer & Hoss get more comfortable with him,I expect good things. Speed kills.

    • Toews still makes funny faces!

      Uh-hem. After Saad gets more comfortable playing with living hockey Gods Toews-Hossa and those Gods trust he will not fuck up their forming of the attack plan, you expect to see good things right?

      • Joe Banks

        Sure.

  • justforkicks

    and how great was the 2nd line tonight?! wow, i take back everything i said before…as long as it lasts. those guys were on fire tonight in all aspects!

  • mightymikeD

    ahhhh.. first “crawling into bed while housemates get up for work, tired but happy” of the new season for me..

    • ahnfire

      yay! a ceremonial upboat for you :D

  • QCBlackhawk

    Two stats to be happy about.
    Hossa is leader for goals.
    Mike Smith’s GAA is 5.0

    • 10thMountainFire

      Smith temper tantrums: 4

  • Toews still makes funny faces!

    Here is the bad news. The Hawks GAA is 3.00 right now!

    • 10thMountainFire

      Yeah. That’s the one component that concerns me.

      • Z-man19

        Join the club

  • red palace

    The Hawks have found an answer to the goalie problem
    And his name is Marian Hossa.

  • mightymikeD

    OK, time to start building up the hate for The StL Club… two days should be enough..

    • 10thMountainFire

      Fuck Scum… JR!

  • 10thMountainFire

    Anyone else recall the game at the UC two years ago in October against St. Louis where, down 2-0 a certain man from a certain Slovakia scored two goals within minutes… including one while facing his OWN FUCKING NET?

    • Accipiter

      Against the Blues ?

      • 10thMountainFire

        Yep.

        • Accipiter

          Then the answer is yes. Between the legs IIRC.

    • Toews still makes funny faces!

      Why you bring a tear to my eye?

  • ahnfire

    Post game wrap is already up. Go read it & tell McClure what you think.

    Great game, but far from perfect.
