    The only thing that still gives me hope is we were down 2-0 to the Blues in 2014. Buuuuuut we also lost those first two games in OT and actually scored a few goals.

    Yeah, they were in those games. I was pretty shocked when they brought the same exact gameplan in to the second game. "Well, what we tried in game 1 didn't work, so let's do the exact same thing..." Ugh

    Awful. I fell asleep on the couch after the 2nd period and they were up 2-0. Woke up and the postgame show was on talking about a Hawks loss. Would be nice if Toews showed up....the captain hasn't scored a goal in his last 12 playoff games. Can't believe it's looking like this team will be knocked out in the 1st round 2 years in a row......wonder if Q will start feeling some heat.

    2nd most points in team history this season - he's probably untouchable right now. However, if they have a subpar season next year or a another 1st round exit, I'm sure the heat will be on.

    Oh yeah...I doubt it would be soon, but it's just brutal for a team with this much talent to get knocked out in the 1st round 2 years in a row.

    Absolutely pathetic fucking performance by this team. I don't even know what to say right now...so shocked.

    3 goals in 4 freakin games. Damn near shut out 3 of the 4 games; took an empty net/power play combo to score last night. Pathetic month of April.

    So disappointing. Will be interesting to see what they do in the offseason. A lot of bloated contracts on this team right now.

    Toews had a really bad year, hopefully he'll bounce back. I almost feel like something off the ice is bothering him. He just never seemed to have that focus and leadership he's known & loved for this season. His body language last night after he scored, you could tell he just wanted to get the game over with and go home.
    Defense really needs an overhaul. Too old and slow. Seems like every game this season we were outshot by a wide margin. Crawford is way too inconsistent at goal and lets in so many stinkers. I don't know if Darling is the full-time answer, he seems to do better in short sprints.
    Definitely will be interesting to see what moves are made over the summer.

    Not sure if I would call it a bad year from Toews. His point total is pretty similar to what it has been over the past few years. They were still the top team in the western conference so they were obviously doing something right.

    Absolutely agree that the defense needs some fresh blood. TVR didn't do much this year to inspire much confidence. I still say that trading Nick Leddy instead of Sharp at the time is one of the worst moves Stan Bowman has ever made. Trading away a 23 year old D-man instead of an aging winger....just awful.

    Not a great year for Crawford, but don't think things would have ended up any differently if Darling had been their starter all year. Just don't think Crow is worth $6M per year especially when you see the rest of these bloated contracts on this team.
