    Apology Letter

    I'm expecting a written apology to Hawks fans from Khabibulin, Handzus, and Rozsival. That was absolutely embarrassing to watch as a fan. Their performances were downright putrid.

    Discuss.

    He's fine being a back up...as long as Crawford's the only one who starts

    Too early in year to judge Khabby

    If he is still struggling in January then its time for Simpson (or Raanta if he start playing better)

    Yep. Something it was. I never thought I would dream of Emery in goal but I am right now.

    Raanta Time. Offer Khabby a bottle of vodka to retire.

    Great game by the three stooges, Khabibulin, Handzus and Rosival. Honorable Shemp is Bishop.

    Honestly, if we had a cardboard cut out I bet we win, at least it would be well positioned. Also not liking how many stupid mistakes the "vets" are making.

    Brutal goaltending tonight, by both goalies.

    I'm so done with Handzus, he was OK for the first few games, but he is terrible now. Not sure I understand whats going on there. Anyone in CHI or Rockford would look better at this point.

    If they didn't give one for doing stuff like that on a nightly basis for 10 years, its not happening now...

    This loss can be pretty much blamed solely on three players:

    Rozsival
    Khabi
    Anchor

    Good news guys. We have a back-to-back in less than a week, so we'll get to see Khabi again soon.

    I think Khabby is washed up. He looked like garbage in the pre-season and looks just as bad in the regular season. He wasn't any good for the past couple of years.

    Stay healthy Craw... please.

    I hope the Hawks don't become like the Wings by overvaluing vets, didn't we have one of the younger rosters in 2010?

    Given it's only been two games, but most of us wanted Raanta to back-up Crow anyways.

    Clearly you didn't follow Khabby

    Did well after his time as #1 was over ,, Once he was #2 and not playing heavy load he was one of the more capable #2' s in NHL

    Infact last year he was up there near Emery for top performing backups

    I'll put a Jocelyn Thibault jersey on a traffic cone and it would have a higher save percentage than Khabby.
