    So this Rozsival guy? You say he’s the Hawks #6 d-man? Um…I’ll allow it.

    • Joe Banks

      Do you think Phoenix misses him?

      • BigHoss

        nope

      • BigHoss

        nope

    • Joe Banks

      Best six we’ve had in years…

    • mightymikeD

      He looked a little slow to react at times last night.. or that’s my take. Still, I’ll take him.

      • Z-man19

        Compare him to Fluffy, how slow is he now?

        • mightymikeD

          oh, aye…

          • DesertHawk

            I believe you mean Aye Aye

        • 2883

          like Road runner vs Wile E Coyote

        • M7

          I find Rosy’s number a little disconcerting though…

      • detroit must die

        I’ll take Rozsival in the lineup over Brookbank any day of the week.

  • Joe Banks

    Forward David Gilbert and goalie Kent Simpson were reassigned to Rockford on Sunday.

    Are we expecting suspensions to Carter Hutton and Kyle Beach?

    Note: Kent Simpson (GAA 2.85 sv% .885) is no Alec Richards (GAA 3.50 sv% .874).

    • girlphoenix

      There are definitely going to be suspensions.

      They have a game today at 1pm. No idea who will be on the roster. Beach is most definitely getting suspended. So is Flick for leaving the bench; that’s six games. I don’t know about everyone else with the game misconducts for secondary altercations.

      If a lot of guys get suspended, I have no idea how they will fill their roster. They literally have no one else they can call up. The only people they have that haven’t been playing are injured (Ben Smith, Joe Lavin, Byron Froese) or suspended already (Brad Mills, serving a suspension from the ECHL) or Brett Lebda.

      • Joe Banks

        I am so watching that game today. According to the Rockford Register Star, the impending suspensions will probably not affect today’s game.

        • girlphoenix

          Good luck finding a feed, cause they don’t exist.

          • 2883

            I’ve found them on the first row occasionally, but they’re not good feeds….

          • Joe Banks

            they do, but it’s 10 bucks a month

      • justforkicks

        the GR players better get a shitload of suspensions as well. MAYBE it was losing track of it at the last game, but the inability to count is a real problem here as well as the refs apparently blindness

  • Joe Banks

    Does anyone know how Ben Smith is doing? I cannot find anything about the status of his “UBI”…

    • justforkicks

      hurt his wrist – out 3-4 weeks

      • Joe Banks

        Thanks

      Timeline on Ben Smith’s left hand injury is currently
      3-4 weeks. Hand is wrapped in a cast. Injury is above the thumb #IceHogs #Blackhawks

      • Joe Banks

        Thanks… and bummer.

  • justforkicks

    jeez, is this true?

    ChrisKuc
    Coyotes fans booing Marian Hossa more than other #Blackhawks. Guess they didn’t like way Hossa landed after Raffi Torres’ dangerous hit.

    • justforkicks

      well apparently Boo’s mean ‘Go Marian Go’ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etJtYk9uN3M
      But that is still total shit

    • mightymikeD

      Torres got one of the loudest cheers at the Banner Raising so I’d guess the Free Raffi Fuckwits are still out there..

      • justforkicks

        what a bunch of asshole dicks.

        • 2883

          tell me how you really feel

        • cliffkoroll

          borderline gay slander?

          • Accipiter

            Possibly hockey induced tourettes.

      • BodomSlayer

        That’s pretty disgusting.

    • DesertHawk

      I didn’t notice that, but about 70% of the Yotes fans do appear to be fair weather meat head types. Every fanbase has to start somewhere I guess.

      • mightymikeD

        wherever it starts, it’s going to end in Quebec… just kidding

        • DesertHawk

          :angryeyes:

        • BigHoss

          or AHL ay-o!

    • Sparky_The_Barbarian

      I didn’t notice the booing until he had undressed Mike Smith a couple times and made Doan look downright silly.

  • BigCSouthside

    I think its fairly apparent that Marian Hossa spent the off season in a Bacta tank having scouting video of goalies streamed directly into his brain

    • Accipiter

      The rest off his off season was spent adjusting to his new adamantium skeleton.

  • BigCSouthside

    I also just saw Kane’s assist. Holy mother of fuck

    • Z-man19

      It just wasn’t fair and I like it that way

    • justforkicks

      it was a real beaut. he was all over the freaking ice last night. i love him.

    • cliffkoroll

      Based on my count, he’s on a one “holy mother of fuck” per game pace so far this year.

      • BigHoss

        i like the fuck everything kaner

        • Accipiter

          Especially when he’s playing hockey.

          • BigHoss

            haha plus one i guess we dont have rec’s anymore

          • DesertHawk

            up boats now

          • BigHoss

            alrighty

          • BodomSlayer

            All the up boats are belong to us

          • Accipiter

            I’d prefer it if you didn’t bring anyone.

          • Joe Banks

            As opposed to Limo or UW?

  • BigHoss

    good win by the hawks, and hi everyone long time no see

    • mightymikeD

      alright, mate!

      • BigHoss

        so mike MMD. hows Ireland been treating ya?

        • mightymikeD

          I’ve been back in London since October… s’alright

          • BigHoss

            see this is what you miss when you havent been on in a while haha

      • derlemke

        hey it’s you

        • mightymikeD

          well spotted.

  • mightymikeD

    Let’s talk about the PK.. The Hawks were showing flashes of what we saw last night towards the end of last season.. aggressive, intelligent killing with a constant threat of a breakout. Moar plz

    • justforkicks

      its like hossa said, team is looking like it was in the golden year, now to keep it up

    • Joe Banks

      At least a few times vs LA, PK held opponent to zero or 1 shot I believe

  • justforkicks

    Also, I could not be more angry for the repeated showings of the hit from last year. I don’t want to see that shit, and especially not over and over again.

    Additionally, fuck off with your revisionist history, Jacobs.

    • girlphoenix

      oh jfk! i don’t know if you follow him, but beachy tweeted he’s okay! i’m so glad

      • BigHoss

        alright good, and girlphoenix are you feeling better?

        • girlphoenix

          eh, not really :/

          • BigHoss

            aww im sorry to hear

          • BigHoss

            get better

          • DesertHawk

            You’re sick? Oh noes! What’s wrong, if I can ask?

          • girlphoenix

            just cold/flu/etc. nothing serious just annoying

          • DesertHawk

            Oh ok. Hadn’t been particularly active, pre game being back, and thought I might have missed something. Glad to hear it’s just seasonal dumbness and not more dire.

      • justforkicks

        I do not! So glad to hear that, thanks for telling me!!

  • detroit must die

    big difference is playing four lines that can role. This would be even better if Q would fall out of love with Bollig. I know, its wishing for something that just isn’t going to happen. But I would much rather see Mayers in there as wing on the 4th line with Kruger and Frolik

  • Sparky_The_Barbarian

    The solution to our goalie issue? Score 5 or more a night. I wasn’t displeased with Crow, though Razor definitely left room for improvement, though not as much room for improvement as his counterpart Mister Smith, allegedly one of the best goalies in the game.

  • Woods

    I LIKE THIS

    • DesertHawk

      Up boats!!

    • justforkicks

      and only hawks without a point already in 2 games are brookbank, saad, keith, shaw, and bollig
