    We got ourselves a win streak!  Stanley Cup here we come!

    Watch out!  They're definitely not as bad as they've shown the past couple months....they'll prob end up in the middle of the pack out of the playoffs but without a very high draft pick.  The worst place to be!

    7 in a row!  Western Conference standings are wild.....Hawks are 4 points out of a playoff spot and also 4 points from last place in the conference.  Will be interesting to see if they buy or sell at the trade deadline.  Don't really think they should be buyers here because it's unlikely that they make a deep playoff run.

    At this point they should have just gotten rid of Q in the offseason.  I still don't think they should have fired him at all, but it's clear that Bowman wanted to get rid of him.  They could have had training camp and early in the season to adjust to Colliton's system which is clearly working now.   Instead they fire Q 10 games in and then the Hawks completely sucked for 6 weeks while getting used a new system.

    Playing with some purpose lately, for certain.  Kane is on fire.  Toews already surpassing last year's totals.  DeBrincat is a beast!  I hope to god they don't give him the Saad/Panarin treatment in the offseason. Delia just got an extension through 2021-22.  I also still agree they shouldn't have fired Q at all, but I am glad to see the guys finally finding their stride under Colliton.  That at least bodes well for the near future.
    Don't know if you saw my post in the NHL thread, but the Hawks are a career 80-6-5 when Toews & Kane both score.  Include the playoffs and they improve to 86-6-5. That's some impressive stuff!

    They've been fun to watch of late, but in no way will they be buyers.  They are just a decent team with a few true stars.  That doesn't win many playoff games.  Taking a loan should only be done for a team that can make it deep.
    Either way, it's been fun to see them play with some heart.  For most of the season they looked like they were just going through the motions.

    Nice bounce back win last night after the winning streak ended in Boston on Tuesday.  Kane has 46 points in his last 22 games...he's playing out of his mind right now.
