Morning, everyone. Gave this a few hours for all you Blackhawk fans to settle down after that loss in Vancouver tonight. Couple of things I'd like to clarify. Vancouver doesn't HAAAAYYYYTTTEEE the Hawks. Grudging admiration is the key, since we know we'll have a challenge every time we play you, which, frankly, we haven't had too much of this year. Also, pity that the Sedin twins were instrumental tonight against your team, scoring the winner and all that. Kind of like, I dunno, kissing your sister or something. There seems to be a train of thought that the refs were on Vancouver's side tonight. Goal disallowed, and all that. Just on that, what was the deal with Turco nailing Kesler in the nethers? Very unsporting. Anyway, both teams had 4 powerplays, and I guess, if you hadn't gone donut on the power play and done a bit better on the penalty kill, I'd probably be in a dark room, eating a s*** sandwich. But that's all hypothetical now. How did you think that Lu played tonight? I mean, considering that, you know, you said that getting three games basically means his mind'll go into shutdown. Oh yeah, and the 41 shot game last time. Well, three goals on 45 shots tonight...I'd say he played pretty well, myself. Some of those saves. Incredible. Anyway, good luck with your playoff run. Would really be embarrassing if you win a Cup one year and then miss the playoffs the next. 60% of remaining games on the road. Hope a lot of them are against teams like Toronto, Edmonton and the Islanders.
Embarrassing? What is embarrassing is that Canucks got kicked out from playoffs 2 years in row by the same team. You can go ahead and get President Trophy and then stick it in your Canuck's ass because you will get kicked out again, and this time in the first round.
Dude, I understand you're angry about losing to Vancouver. But really - did it have to take you two days to come up with that witty comment? Besides - both years Chicago had more points than Vancouver, so realistically (even though in 08/09 Vancouver was seeded 3rd & Chicago 4th due to the stupid nature of the seedings), the playoffs just followed the natural order...that is, both years, the Hawks were the better team, and therefore - there was no embarrassment. Just pain. Lots and lots of pain...and who is going to kick us out of the first round? Really - Luongo has lost 8 games in his forty games. Think that he'll lose four out of seven in the first round?
