So far this preseason it looks like Hawks have been playing from behind. Hope they clear that up before regular season starts.
Well, they still seem to be doing this. Working on the shootout seems to have helped. Now they have to work on passing out of the zone. Too many turnovers in their end which ultimately lead to goals. But Quenville will get this fixed. Still they are in very good shape after the first eight games of the season.
Flames hit a new level of "ultrasuck" last night-- They played ok for 10 minutes but then the Canucks had a couple of chances and a couple of PP and it was 3-0-- The Flames then beat the crowd out of the saddledome by departing completely before the 2nd period and ghostly apparitions with no substannce took the ice.
COMPLETE LACK OF EFFORT.
You don't get to 300 losses without being a pretty exceptional goaltender.-- Ben Kenobi speaking of Roberto Luongo
Heatley is on a downward career trend. The Sharks were smart to give him up. I didn't think Havlat was a good acquisition, but he's been okay. Burns is a nice defenceman. I don't think he will win any Norris trophies. I could see him being on the lower end of a top 10 or 15 list of Dmen in the NHL.
