Same here.  I went and double-checked the standings just to make sure I had to say that.

The guy I'm playing in fantasy this week has Elliot and I'm up by only 3 because of his two shutouts earlier this week. Hawks need to win for that and for the standings.

IMO the Hawks need to send a message in this game soon. The Blues are playing a little too close to the line.

Yeah, it's a good, physical game. THIS is hockey! Not the candy-ass tiptoe through the tulips game The Red Wings play on most nights. Rivalries are what make hockey; unfortunately, The Red Wings have no rivalries anymore, mostly because they do not engage in physical play due to the Charmin soft teams Ken Holland has assembled since Bowman's retirement.

Right, cause we've never had a physical team since 2002

Backes asked Bickell earlier in the game if he every plays when they were chirping on the bench- Bickell scores to make it 1-0.

Why can't we forecheck like these teams :/

On the other hand, does this not mean that he CAN'T do the Wings/Preds game on NBC sports?   Doesn't he usually do those?  OH, how I hope I'm right.  


"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Backes jumps Saad out of nowhere. I guess that works.

Non-calls for the Blues, all calls for the Hawks. Situation normal.

Yeah, one, and we won the Cup that season. Coincidence? But seriously, name one team that Detroit has had a heated rivalry with since Bowman's departure. Most physical games have been one-sided. I think there was even a players poll a few years back that voted Detroit as the "least hated" team. That's not surprising. Since year 2 of the Babcock/Holland regime, Detroit has routinely had the least physical crop of forwards in the NHL. Outside of Helm (injured), Drake (retired) and Tootoo (inexplicable a healthy scratch against some of the more physical teams?), Detroit has not had many consistently physical forwards. That's not an opinion, that's a fact. 


 
But I'm not going to argue about it. It will get us nowhere. Right now, I'm just hoping Detroit will make the playoffs...

I thought that Sobotka was tough...

Note to Hossa: Franzen says he can score like that too...
