    They’ve given up 13 goals in just 3 regular season games to start the year.

    Keith still looks like a solid top pairing guy, but the rest?

    Seabrook is a shell of his former self, Rutta is press box material, Jokiharju is an offensive D straight outta juniors who can’t defend at the pro level, and Manning was chased out of the defensive Mecca that is Philadelphia.

    They will be a bottom 5 team if Q doesn’t tighten the reigns and have them committing to playing a cohesive, defence first game. A trade to shore up the D would do wonders as well, giving Keith somebody to play with would be a good start to fixing the blueline in Chicago.

    A starting goalie might help.

    Today, one of the worst. When Forsling and Murphy come back, top-20 D corps, potentially even better.

    Watch the guy between pipes though.

    The Hawks can download him. 3D printing has come a long way.

    Well Cam Ward was in mid season form tonight.

    That he powered the Hurricanes past the Bruins in the playoffs still grinds my gears to this day.

    If they can find someone to stop the puck they will look better. Find one of those. Stop puck guys.

    That and tell Keith not to bite on the outside move leaving the middle of the ice wide open. Amateur hour Duncan. Amateur. Hour.

    Have you watched a single minute of the Hawks? I ask because you are really off with the both comments. Also remember Ward has a been sub-par.
