Hawks tie record
« on: February 20, 2013, 09:03:10 AM »
Last night the Blackhawks beat the Canucks in OT to tie an NHL record of 16 straight games with at least one point to start a season.  This is the best start in Chicago's history and on Friday night they will have a chance to take the NHL record. 

"It's a remarkable start," coach Joel Quenneville said. "We're very happy and pleased. Guys should be proud of the achievement and where they're at, especially in a 48-game season. It puts us in a real good spot."

Chicago faces a tough Sharks team on Friday for the 2nd time in a week.  They could be without Hossa who needed help getting off the ice after getting hit in the back of the head by Jannik Hansen. 

"It's great to start, but that's all it is: It's a start," said Ray Emery, who made 29 saves last night. "You want to see it at the end of the year, that's when it counts."

Hawks tie record

Really thought the streak may come to an end when Vancouver was up 1-0 in the game, but Chicago has found a way to fight back in every game. They have so many threats to score and make plays. Their checking line is great and draws penalties for the power play.

Losing Hossa for an extended period of time could really hurt, but I think they could pull off a couple more before they lose.

Great start for them!

    Today at 05:01:37 PM
  • mike0542: Possible trade here, linder.
    Today at 05:05:34 PM
  • Scalious: Trade posted. Confirm here mike [link]
    Today at 05:22:04 PM
  • mike0542: If I need to pick, scalious, you want to tell me who you want so i can put it through to keep the draft moving?
    Today at 05:27:42 PM
  • Scalious: When can i make the pick? After COL confirms? or.. until 3 people pass it?
    Today at 05:28:21 PM
  • mike0542: Well i just confirmed, but idk how long it takes to process
    Today at 05:28:56 PM
  • Jpsprague10: Trade needs to pass
    Today at 05:30:11 PM
  • Scalious: Derek Hill. That is my pick. So you can make it if you want
    Today at 05:30:28 PM
  • Scalious: COL
    Today at 05:30:45 PM
  • Scalious: Fair enough JP.. so then VOTE!
    Today at 05:31:32 PM
  • Jpsprague10: I'm looking at it, at 1st glance, it is pretty ugly. Not sure Mike understands the value of  that pick. Players available in that spot wouldn't be had for bench players. Not prepared to vote either way yet.
    Today at 05:34:38 PM
  • Jpsprague10: On the flipside not sure its grandiose enough to worry about it.
    Today at 05:35:39 PM
  • Scalious: Cool either way JP. Just didn't want to hold up the draft
    Today at 05:35:40 PM
  • sandman: Smoking Gun bro, Ive been begging to get picks and you don't even give me a shot
    Today at 05:35:54 PM
  • Scalious: Mike made the pick.. so on that end we are good to go. :CLE: OTC
    Today at 05:36:17 PM
  • Eric: Wow JoE Maddon opted out
    Today at 05:37:51 PM
  • Eric: 80 here in Colorado, little breeze
    Today at 05:38:43 PM
  • Jpsprague10: I'll vote later tonight Scals, i think you know i'll look at all sides and offer fair evaluation.
    Today at 05:39:33 PM
  • Scalious: No problem.
    Today at 05:45:49 PM
  • chrisetc21: Joe Maddon opted out and the Rays were never heard from again
    Today at 05:53:26 PM
  • chrisetc21: Not that anyone in Tampa would notice or care
    Today at 05:53:45 PM
  • Eric: :rofl:

  • indiansnation: im hearing he might go to lad
    Today at 05:55:18 PM
  • Gilly: hahaha I love this, respect being taught!
    Today at 06:00:11 PM
  • Jpsprague10: Approve Scals, i think you'll agree with most of it, that's why you did the deal.
    Today at 06:01:15 PM
  • Scalious: I do..except I suspect you don't so highly of Hill
    Today at 06:02:37 PM
  • Jpsprague10: I think he's solid value, his defense should get him to the show. Bat is going to need some work and has some overall growing to do. Defense could make him a starter someday or a solid 4th/5th OF. Just needs reps right now.
    Today at 06:07:58 PM
  • Gilly: oh oh is there a trade in question
    Today at 06:09:04 PM
  • Scalious: Yeah.. I look at him as a project player. I agree in this spot in the draft you can get some real high upside guys
    Today at 06:09:44 PM
  • Scalious: I was actually hoping for Gatewood. Would I be correct in you don't pass this trade if it was Gatewood?
    Today at 06:10:25 PM
  • Jpsprague10: If I don't know the pick at all, i would have had to of thought a lot longer.
    Today at 06:12:01 PM
  • Corey: Looks like it Gills. Noone must like the Houston and KC trade noone is voting lol
    Today at 06:12:28 PM
  • Jpsprague10: But, you see the dilema, Rivera& Flaherty doesn't land you Gatewood in this league.
    Today at 06:13:18 PM
  • Scalious: and Rivera had the highest WAR on the Padres..I'm not sure how Alonso fits back in..but I don't view him as a bench bat..
    Today at 06:13:29 PM
  • Jpsprague10: Respectful conversation on values. No beef.
    Today at 06:14:01 PM
  • Scalious: yes I can see that. I actually would have offerd COL something better if Gatwood was still sitting..because I would be so eager to get him
