I always find myself in awe of Booths deft puck possession skills, mainly his dependability to safely clear the puck out of danger from the Canucks end of the ice

Just like Dallas, horribly out shot in the 1st. Love the PK, a great save by Lack - but nothing going on in the Hawks zone.

No worries Corny :drunk:

They cannot win all the games but their offensive time sucked so far.

Sedin's getting hit off the puck a lot tonight.

Richardson was running around a little on both of those goals as was Bieksa but again not every night will be a Snow White night.

They are the best team in the NHL, and we have to battle to stay in the game with them. I don't see that as much of a slag at the Canucks, more of an acknowledgement of reality. That 09/10 team was one of the best ever assembled, IMO, and they've been able to retool quickly with some fast-developing draft choices. Of course being able to draft guys like Kane (1st overall) and Toews (3rd overall), fleecing the Flyers for Sharp, and having Hossa want to sign there helps...

Ultimately their best players are better than our best players. I don't think there's much difference in the depth of players, in fact the Canucks have better defensive depth when healthy. Kane, Toews, Hossa, Sharp is simply a better foursome than Sedin, Sedin, Kesler, Burrows.

On the plus side: Nice shot by Kassian. He could be quite the player, eh Dud?

Did Gillis drop the ball again by locking the aging Sedins to untradeable long term luongo type contracts? They suck right now

It was Booth who gave up puck possession on the first goal. Stop protecting your boi Booth

I'll be curious to see how the Blackhawks maintain their elite status.

Kane and Toews will both be up for $10M+ per year deals when they hit UFA status after next season.

Wow. To think Hamhuis was once considered a candidate for the Olympic team... he's been atrocious this year. Just got skated around like it was beer league and he spent the flood crushing Pilsner.
