48 hours is a long rest, travel is a regular thing, cant blame them on a loss. injuries yeah they hurt, getting people back wont help out defensive problems hardly any. it will help offense mostly. You dont win cups by trying to out score an opponent, defense comes first.


I'm just glad we're less "terrible" than almost every other team in the league despite injuries. At least that's what the standings show. Defense and goaltending will have to tighten up to do anything in the playoffs, but we've got a few months until then and we should be a lot healthier by then. So long as Osgood stays on target to return and we don't have any other major injuries, I think this team is in good shape heading into the playoffs.

Mursak is looking mighty impressive, some of those shifts were so good.

So much speed, energy, and he's got hands which will make themselves more vident as he gets more confidence.

That backcheck on Hossa was fantastic, he actually outraced Hossa to the puck, not easy.

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

Injuries may account for the 1 goal we were able to muster, injuries aren't the reason for crappy linechanges, turnovers and an inability to clear players out infront of the net.

The Wings fought tooth and nail and beat Canucks, it's amazing they can't do it to a rather average Hawks team.


I disagree..........the rash of injuries has destroyed the chemistry of this team.........not to mention that some of the injured players happen to be the better two way players on the team. The team will hold it together well enough to secure a good playoff position. As long as they're playing well in March and April, little of what happens in January really matters anyway. We've all watched enough hockey to realize that.

what are the excuses going to be when this team gets a bunch of players back in Feb. and they're still giving up 3+ goals every single game?

they simply don't look capable of playing tight defense. i think we can finally say that howard is having a sophomore slump, too.

wings are going nowhere in the playoffs. not going to be successful trying to win every game 5-4 or 4-3. a team like vancouver will absolutely destroy them.



The negativity is astounding. "they don't look capable" ? Are you fricking kidding. You don't remember what happened last March.


Cut the negative BS. It's only January. Every team goes through tough spots. In February 2008, we lost 9 out of 10 in one stretch.
Do or do not. There is no try

I'd take Ericsson over Salei.

Salei allowed two Hawks players to score two goals on the powerplay today. Bad bad Salei.


definitely has been horrid. how long are we going to keep hearing about how he's playing great and is a "steadying presence back there" or some other BS?

both those goals, he was way too high and let the hawks in front of the net do whatever they felt like. that's penalty killing 101.

last season is irrelevant. i'm talking about this season.

and this season, they don't look capable of playing tight defense. this is not a 10-game assessment. we're talking all season here.
