    Yes there is a game tonight but I detect a lot less interest from Hawks fans after watching sloppiness...MIA talent and way too numerous golden chances not finished and if course the fail for a full 60 that has crept in to this losing ride the team us on
    ...hard to care or cheer for players who are either not living up to their paychecks consistently enough or who ard not caring enough to clean up the slop ..

    Hockey is simple. ..put pucks past the oops goalie and prevent pucks from going in past our goalie...but it seems such simplicity is beyond the comprehension or the execution will of our players. ...when your team plays frustrating hockey instead of exciting and wanting it galore hockey such that they refuse to surrender the final period in a close game 2 period score ...when a team instead shows it just caves after blowing leads in the game ...and when you know they cannot or will not do anything to dominate that crucial AL final period but are willing to go merely into the night as losers to a team decimated by injuries ...well why should fans care to watch that team?

    Now a 3cgame losing streak and the urgency and will and attention to detail had got to show up ...with all hands on deck in a buy-in.
    .if we get the very same crap we have seen the last c games from Q's crew tonight ..there may be Zero fans willing to invest their time on such fizzlers in any more games till they prove they will finish more chances and will prevent a lot less pucks going past CC...Opps make mistakes and hardly seems to hurt them;we make mistakes. ..puck goes into our net...Fans will not watch this kind of hockey anymore ...frustrating and toturous.

    If that's truly what Q believes, I don't know how anyone can deny the fact that he should be done as the Hawks coach.

    Sounds like coach speak to me especially since you know the guy isn't going away anytime soon

    What do people want Q to say "This guys is ****ing terrible and I am amazed he can tie his laces and stand up without someone there to hold him"?

    Either way at end of day I just want Hawks to win game. I don't care how just do it

    Well your never going to have coach who says something like that about active player on roster

    To me the "I think he has been fine" is faint praise and about as PC as you can get as a coach. If Q truly loved him he would be speaking highly of him and talking him up like he did with Rozy or Handzus or other guys like that

    I would like him to not say "defensively he's been fine" because that's objectively false. He could just say he likes how Manning plays physical or jumps in on offense and leave it at that.

    I get what you're saying though.

    No. He said to give him time to settle in basically.

    He has a lot of settling to do. Sounds like a stretch.
