Totally agree!!!! these shootouts and points for losing in the 5 min OT have ruined NHL records--you cant compare the Blackhawks run with the 1980 Flyers, the Flyers had no shootouts and OT's and even in the beginning of the OT era (1983) you didnt get any points for losing in the OT.

 

The "ruining NHL records" is such an absurd argument against any rule change.  There have been significant rule changes throughout the history of the sport - how far back do you want to go?  Shall we eliminate the forward pass?  Y'know, just so we can compare eras?

 

Regarding the game, its clear the Blackhawks are a very good team.  Whether that means they'll be a very good team come playoff time, or they'll use up or their luck in the regular season remains to be seen.

 

For Detroit - Flip and Bert can't come back quick enough.  Poor, poor Pavel :(


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

Yeah, but those rule changes were good for the game.  Shootouts still divide fans and make less sense than the "forward pass" as you say it.

How about keep going til someone wins just like the playoffs.  The incentive to try to score is getting the extended time over with sooner.

Nah.  Players would be too tired for that.  So would fans.

The games potentially take too long and the players get worn out. It's special in playoffs and it should stay there.

Also living in Atlantic Canada the Western Coast games are absolutely brutal and aren't over till 1 or 130 AM at the earliest in the regular season

Franzen has got to go... He made quite a few errors, and aside from hitting the post, he was rather worthless out there.  This is how he's looked since returning from injury, and he hasn't done much outside of this to warrant keeping him around.  At least healthy scratch him a few games and send a message.

Man what a bummer. With the team constructed as it is now that was OUR Stanley Cup for this season. I was pretty pissed at Big E and Kronwall for those pretty much inexcusable penalties but we have got to score more than 1 goal against Corey "The Dominator" Crawford. Changes really have to be made, a message has to be sent, but with our front office track record I don't see anything being done (we like our team, adding Helm and Bert is like making a blockbuster trade, etc etc). Hopefully Tatar gets promoted to the 2nd line after today. I've seen enough of Cleary not being able to handle Pavel's feeds and I've seen enough of Abs doing whatever the f*** he does. Abs has been playing on the 2nd line with Pavel how many games? And still has no goals? Even Cleary has managed to pot a couple. He brings nothing to the team that can't be replaced by any random 4th liner in the league. Pretty much a DMac that can't fight, no scoring touch, and no intangibles.


Oh and Franzen looked absolutely dreadful.

The Blackhawks "record" needs an asterisk.

I like the finality of it personally.  I would never accept it in a playoff game, but in the regular season, its fun.  I really enjoy it.

Right, but you are giving out potential playoff spots to the results of a skills competition. It's as absurd as giving home field advantage in the world series to the winner of the all star game.


The early bird may get the worm, but it's the 2nd mouse that gets the cheese.

Waaaaah!  The millionaires might have to play longer and get tired.  Then put them in skirts.  God forbid we give the fans value for their money.

Missed the game, but sounds like Tatar got shafted by Babcock. Did he sleep with Babcock's wife or something? The treatment of him and Datsyuk is mind boggling.

I don't know what happened but sometime during the 2nd we had Tootoo's line up against Hossa's line and needless to say the whole shift was spent in our zone. What the f*** was with the matchups.

Not sure why you quoted me on this but it looked like the Hawks simply changed on the fly while we were hemmed in.

So this is how I see this game: 

 

* We were outplayed in the first 2 periods. Pretty badly. Very solid defense and Howard kept us in it. 

 

* In the 3rd we woke up, took over the play, and really looked good. We scored. After that we backed away a little bit, but still created chances, and still played solid D. 

 

* Then something happened.... I can't explain it.. Ericsson, amazing up until that point, made a really stupid, boneheaded play. It's one that every d-man does at one point or another. But it can't happen with 2-3 minutes left when you have a 1-0 lead in a big game. 

 

* Chicago scored a rather flukey goal on the PP. 

 

* OT was great, back and forth, wish it was longer. I personally think we would have won the game, IN OT, if Babcock had played Tatar instead of Cleary. 

 

* Once it went to shootout, it's a coin-toss. A bit disappointed by Datsyuk's attempt, but Crawford had done his homework and didn't bite. Brunner was sooo close, just another example of the bad breaks we got against us this game. Kane had a nice one, he's a ******, but he's got hands. 

 

* Zetterberg had a highly mediocre game and looked sluggish. Bad SO attempt too. But he still had a couple of really nice passes that could have led to goals. 

 

* Brunner was one of our best guys offensively, along with Tatar who had a nice goal. 

 

* Cleary and Abdelkader were terrible every time they were out on the ice. Honestly don't think either of them did one good thing all game. Not even joking. Filppula better return real soon because it seems obvious Babcock has decided to run with this line until he gets fired and committed to a mental asylum. 

 

* One point is okay, but just like in the game against LA, this was a game where 2 points were very much within reach, and we just did something stupid, got scored against on the PK and bam, points lost.

The shootout is no longer a "skills competition" when it is part of the game.  It is part of the game.

Look, the Wings got a point out of a loss to a good team. Right now we need at least a point out of every game. I remember a time when the Red Wings looked just like the Hawks do right now and dominated the regular season. But guess what, we got eliminated first round in the playoffs. I don't give a flying F### about the regular season, just get in the playoffs, and right now even in losses we need to get a point. We got a good chance to get some points out of these upcoming games. Besides I'll laugh my ass off if the Hawks get lit up in the playoffs. The Cup isn't won by stupid regular season records just remember that.

I hereby move that Jonathan Ericsson's NEW nickname be "Depends" until he finally stops pissing all over himself with the puck at crunch time. He did it in overtime too. Just layed the puck out for anyone behind his own net. 

 

Do I hear a second?

The Blackhawks haven't lost in OT.  They have lost in SO three times..  So even if they were going against the Flyers run in 1980, they would have still gotten a point for getting through OT and it ending in a tie.

I understand that but the point is teams play differently now days when they know they have a secured point as opposed to 'going for it' in the last 5 mins of regulation time like they did back in the early 80's, back then teams went for the win, they didnt rag it the last 5 mins as much as teams do it in todays NHL. 

If all games were worth 3 points now (regulation win =3 pts) dont you think more teams would play harder in the last 5 mins of a game to get ALL the points? it would defiantly change the strategy of todays games just like it was a different approach in the pre-1983 era.

Yeah this is getting rediculus!!  Why is Tatar not with Pav?   Bye bye Pav....back to Russia he goes.

 

I think Hawks are on PED's.   (not kiddin)
