Way to go Holland, Kopecky has 6 points in 6 games. :ph34r:

I'm absolutely kidding by the way. Does anyone know if he's playing on a line with Hossa?

I thought it was Kopecky Toews Hossa

Put anyone with those two and they'll rack up points.

I like Kopecky, and was one of the few who were disappointed to lose him.

That does makes a lot of sense.

Ken Holland: Hes (Mursak) a young guy, provides energy, can skate, hes a puck hound.

No it doesnt b/c Kopecky will never score 56 goals in a single season. In his overall career he might hit 50 ... but 56 is pushing it haha

It just proves how good system the Wings have.
One of the best recommendation for a player is to be a former Wing I guess.
Check under Sammy,Leino,Quincey or Kopecky

The only person on that list I've missed at all is Samuelsson, and he seemed pretty intent on leaving. It does say a lot about the Wings' organization, though. A lot of other teams would really be kicking themselves for losing out on those guys, but the Wings are so deep that it's simply not a big deal.

I never did like Kopecky's game. The main problem with him is just when he was playing decent he would always get injured. His closeness with Hossa always freaked me out somewhat. It's like that whole Ace and Gary thing on SNL. Kariya and Selanne. Hossa and Kopecky. Cue the Boy George music. YIKES.

Agreed. His one goal was ridiculous. Hossa carried the puck into the zone and made a nice play that led to a great scoring chance, then Kopecky comes skating wobbly kneed towards the crease and knocks home the rebound into the wide open net.

Seriously, I don't know what he did to deserve it, but the hockey gods smile down upon him.

Playing with those two, of course he's getting points.

I've watched all the Hawks games so far, and if Kopecky had any talent whatsoever, he could easily have scored another 5 or 6 goals and racked up more points. He has been set up so many times, only to fan on a shot, fall over, get hit, or turn the puck over.

Every season for the past few years he has had a one or two week stretch where he puts up points, guess he's getting it out of the way early.

If Kopecky had any kind of natural offensive ability he would have possibly twice a many points.

I lost track of how many offensive chances he single-handedly screwed up in the Hawks-Wings game.

yeah, he's getting points, but still not exactly playing well. so many plays go to die on his stick. as others have mentioned, he just cleans up trash. i guess its not surprising though. hawks have been lethal on the pk the last couple years, and with kopecky out there, its like a PK too!

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

If the NHL would just get rid of these pesky goaltenders and defensemen, Kopecky could be a star in this league.

Well, the season schedule has been good to the Blackhawks and seems they are getting lots of powerplays.

Seems most of the teams they're playing are coming off back-to-back games including:

Detroit
Blue Jackets
Sabres

+
PLUS -- Blackhawks have played some weak teams... So there you have it, 50% of the games Chicago has played have been on back-2-back nights. Blackhawks gets lots of powerplay time and Kopecky gets top 6 on the powerplay. Kopecky and the 'hawks are over achieving due to the schedule. Bump this thread in 25 more games and see where he sits.

Yes, THE DEFENDING STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS are overachieving....right. Most expect Chicago to be 1-4 in the west, so I don't see how that's overachieving. I do agree though Kopecky always gives someone a grenade of a pass or can't catch a pass, but still somehow manages to get on the score sheet. He is a third liner at best, but he's playing with two superstars, so he'll be fine.
