    The oddsmakers give the Hawks some cred, behind only the Kings and Bruins- good to see. Seeing where people pur their money is worth any number of prognistications, IMO.

    Hey McClure- you can have a laugh at my expense: Soupy’s 12-1 to win the Norris, while Keith is nowhere to be seen! Boom!
    Having said that, Buff is 15-1, so…
    I think I’ll take the field at 9-1.

      Doughty counts as the field. That strikes me as really strange. He should be up there in “likely” nomination territory.

      • cliffkoroll

        Chico, while you didn’t come right out and say it, I can read between the lines. Welcome to the Movement, now spanning at least three time zones! #silentroar #eerilyquiet

        Maybe Doughty has been stealing Buff’s nuggets.

          The movement? Something to do with Rozsival? #theinternet

          • AirTrafficAJ

            Holy shit, I forgot the Hawks signed that guy! Yay?

          • cliffkoroll

            Yes, I agree. The correct response to the Rosival singing is:
            Yay?

          • nextgame

            I’ll reserve judgement on his singing ability until his appearance on ‘The Voice’.
            As for his ability as a hockey player? I guess it’s o.k.
            Yay? indeed.

      If Dustin Byfuglien wins the Norris Trophy, I’m running for President in 2016.

      • Paul the Fossil

        If Buff wins _any_ leaguewide trophy I’ll vote for you.

        Well unless Marian Hossa runs of course, having in the meantime singlehandedly changed our Constitution, won every dancing reality show and made Seth Jones cry in the locker room after his first game in the UC.

    • Paul the Fossil

      I’d be pretty happy to take 20-1 on Toews for the MVP award.

      Keith not being listed at all is puzzling since (a) repeat winners are a pretty strong tendency with the Norris, and (b) one would think that he’s one of the players who will benefit most from the shortened season: 34 fewer games of being run out there for 30 minutes should mean he gets worn down less than during the past couple of seasons. (The game pace this season, the number of games per calendar week, will be only slightly higher than in a normal season.)

    OT- the #silentroar #operationpindrop intiative is taking on a life of its own in the comment sections of recent posts.

    Thanks to TCI for their continued support. I figure as soon as the details of the first home game are nailed down, we blast the twitterspehre. I have like 18 followers myself. I’ve done the math- if everyone tells two friends, Kevin Bacon should be getting the news before lunch.

    Unfortunate headline on sportsnet.ca :
    “BETTMAN APOLOGIZES; CBA APPROVED BY OWNERS”

    If Bettman was apologizing for that, he must have been talking to that dick Jacobs.

  • derlemke

    God that’s an awesome picture. Going to the disco?

  • 10thMountainFire

    Marian you’re a great guy. You’ve done well for yourself with the family. But find a tailor, brother.

    • Accipiter

      Whatever dood ! Seems to be working for him just fine.

      • 10thMountainFire

        I must admit… Marian Hossa could wear a clown costume on the ice and still make most of our jaws drop with his play. I stand corrected.

        • Accipiter

          Stand, sit, what do I care ?
          As long as you are pants less.

          • 10thMountainFire

            Isn’t that sort of the rule around here?

          • Accipiter

            Sort of ?
            Am I the only one around here that gives a shit about the rules !!

          • Z-man19

            Yes

    • Waylon

      Something about those Eastern Euros and their “two wild and crazee guys” outerwear. But he can wear a farking clown suit for all I care, because he’s Marian Hossa, and I’m not.

      • 10thMountainFire

        I’m no three-button man but the suit would work if he found someone to reign it in a bit. Alright, I’m getting entirely too carried away with this. I’m stopping myself right fucking now.

          When a pants-less internet denizen can besmirch the stylings of Jehossa, the terrorists have truly won. And by terrorists I mean pants-less internet denizens. And by won I mean meh.

          • 10thMountainFire

            I am one pathetic loser.

    • M7

      Could use a tailor, yes. Wife is looking top-shelf though…

    • raditzzzz

      he’s goin for the “pirate up top, business on the bottom” look.

    • AirTrafficAJ

      You were looking at his suit??

  • http://www.facebook.com/USA.Kyle Kyle Miller

    Kane seems to be maturing. And with 23 pts in 20 games, having played a lot in a short time, this can only mean great things are coming for this years hawks

  • Skags

    He’s Marian Hossa and I’m not.

  • Paul the Fossil

    Strange, I just had a comment vanish from here. Wasn’t offensive in content unless the mods really, really, really hate the prospect of Duncan Keith winning the Norris again?

    Anyway unrelated, check out this slide show of the Maple Leafs’ modern-era follies. The Parent trade alone, owwww…the pain of being a Toronto fan by now must be pretty serious. Like being a Hawk fan during the last decade of Dollar Bill except that in Toronto it’s gone like that for 40+ years and counting…

    With what she’s almost wearing, she looks like Betty Rubble. And I always thought Betty Rubble was hot.

    It’s only a matter of time:
