The Daily Phil Esposito (1/26/11)

"I scored a game winning goal? Take that Crosby!"

There were eleven former featherheads on the ice last night and they combined to score two points which were both goals. Tonight is the last night which there will be games before the All-Star break until games start back up next Tuesday. I will have an All-Star Espo for former Hawks that do play in the game out next Monday.

With this being the All-Star break, I will put out my two cents of the Hawks this season. First of all after watching last nights game I am sick to my stomach. The inconsistency is killing me. The defense seems to have bad habits of being out of position and have left Corey and Marty out to dry a lot this season.

Another thing that I have beef with is that Kaner needs to put on his big boy pants and step up. He has been better of late but still needs to start racking up points. All season I have listened to Bartl bad mouth Skille and I kind of disagreed with him until the last couple games. He had showed a lot of hustle but he makes dumb mistakes and he looks like he is trying to hard to make things happen and that has led to many mistakes. On top of that Stalberg needs to start playing like the guy that Bowman said he was. Nick Boynton sucks. Lastly Dave Bolland who has been playing well of late, needs to start being consistent on face-offs and act like he cares.

I have a lot more to say but I will leave the rest of the analysis to Bartl and Tim for now. I just wanted to get my frustration of my chest. Hope you enjoyed my rant and the rest of today’s edition of the Espo.

So the picture up loader wouldn’t upload the image today sorry, so you will have to mentally picture Tim Brent.. Don’t know what he looks like? Ehh most of us dont.

There were eight former feather heads to put on the skates last night, and they were able to produce four points; two goals and two assists. Three of the points came from an unlikely source, TIM BRENT.  Enjoy.

The Daily (Weekend Edition) Phil Esposito (1/24/11)

New team... Still a Dick. Do have to admit, would love to have his offense this season though.

There were four games Friday night in which just four former hawks played in. The scored two points all coming from the DICK, umm I mean James Wisniewski who is having a career year, while he is playing musical teams.

On Saturday there were twenty-two former feather heads to take the ice. Three goalies had a 1-2 record. The one win came from the net-minder that took 2 mil to go to San Jose, rather than to stay with the Hawks. The other nineteen skaters produced just four points, with two of goals and assists.

Sunday there were four former hawks to take the ice and one wanna-be hawk that took the gym floor. The former hawks were unable to produce a single point, but the hopeful hawk put his first goal in the back of the net in his first game of the season. For more information on that scroll down to the bottom. I have mixed feelings for the hawks performance this weekend… Played great on Saturday but not so well Saturday. Kind of two face-ed. Hope you enjoy weekend edition of the Espo!

Stanley Cup Rematch: Chrissy and Company Visit The Champions

Nice gams, ya poodle molester...

Has it really been seven months?

Seven months and twelve days, to be exact. The rosters have changed somewhat, the puck is still missing, and Chris Pronger is still a consummate fucktard. Philadelphia still has goaltending problems, Chicago is still relying on a rookie netminder to carry the load, and I think we’ll see later today that these two teams still hate each other’s living guts.

"Wow... 5 goals in two days? I always imagined what it felt liek to be Stamkos..".

former hawks took the ice two being goalies wile the other 13 were skaters. One goalie extended an impressive losing streak, while the skaters added eight points, 4 of each goals and assists. One former Hawk recorded a hat-trick added to an impressive last two games. Also a bit on how a former Stanley Cup Champion Hawk changed jerseys yet again. Hope you enjoy.

Sin And Redemption: Blackhawks Split Weekend Series

"Nice of you to join us, there, Toewsy!"

Another third period collapse cost the Blackhawks a point on Saturday, and it was only due to remarkable goaltending on the part of Corey Crawford that they managed to keep it to one. But the story was different on Sunday, as the Blackhawks erupted for four goals in the third period, turning up the gas and stuffing the previous night’s loss down the Predators’ throats.

Additionally it was a weekend that showed some of the areas of weakness the Blackhawks need to work on: between the two games their superstar forwards scored only one of the ‘Hawks’ eight goals; penalty killing was heinous; and the predictability of the Blackhawks’ shootout participants means everyone but the greenest of rookie goaltenders knows who is shooting, in what order, and where they will be aiming for.

"Its been a while since I actually did something positive!"

There were 13 former hawks to take the ice last night amassing a total of just one goal and one assist. The on goalie won his second game in a row and his name is Antti Niemi. Hope you enjoy this edition of the Espo. I don’t know what I am going to do this week without any hawks games… Might actually do homework for once…

"Holy shit... I actually did something? Maybe coach might make me captain again... Nahh I still suck"

This edition of the Espo has the games from Saturday and Sunday night. Saturday the former hawks had a good night. Antti got his first win in a while and the skater had ten points scoring three goals and seven assists. (Pretty good production from these guys.) On Sunday there were seven ex-Feather heads to take the ice. The two goalies split their decisions. The one win came from the goalie who is playing his ass off this season and the other one got a DUI in the crease… The skaters produced four goals totaling 14 points for the weekend, seven of both goals and assists. Hope you enjoy this edition and had a good weekend. Was a loooong weekend for this college kid… But at least the Hawks got 3 of 4 points possible.
