There Go the Hawks

A 5-0 shellacking at the hands of the Vancouver Cannucks put the Blackhawks a game under .500, which unfortunately is probably where they are going to spend a lot of time this year.

What happened to years ago where the Blackhawks used to actually raise good defensemen in their minor league system? Yeah, we know they traded away a bunch for half talented offensive skaters, but they always had a few decent ones left around where the goalie wasn't facing some 40+ shots a game and smelling like burnt rubber every 12 minutes.

If we didn't hate lawyers so much, Bill Wirtz would be #1 in our hate parade. That man has ruined NHL Hockey in this town.

C'mon, it can't be THAT bad. Try being a Philadelphia Flyers fan.

The Hawks are 4-5-0 w/ 8 pts. (9 games)

The Flyers are 1-6-1 w/ 3 pts. (8 games)

We have a GM that is finally gone but should have resigned YEARS ago, a coach the players didn't like (now fired), a captain (who is prob. still the best in the NHL) who gets hurt, but he's got players that lack the balls to defend him when anyone else takes a run at him, defensemen who are too friggin slow (Hatcher) and a net minder who couldn't stop a puck to save his life (Esche)...

The bright spot: Some young talent (Eager, Ruzicka) has finally been brought up from the Phantoms.

Serioulsy, it's not that bad being a Hawks fan. Try being a Flyers fan for one day and you'll know how I feel! HA!

Why so pessimistic? Ruutut will be back in about a week. Khabibiulin broke a finger-out about week+1/2. Havlat out 2-3weeks with a sprained ankle. Shit and injuries happen. If we could only get Dollar Bill to fall down some stairs.....

As one who used to follow NHL hockey in this town, it is sad to see what has happened to the Blackhawks. There won't be any improvement while Old Man Wirtz is running the show.

Bring back Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita. Those were the days my friend, I thought they'd never end.
