  1. Dont stop because Toews Hossa and Panarin are on a slow start ….we also need more offence from a few other kids….
    Go Hawks Go

  2. Panarin has 5 points in 6 games, Hossa has 4 points in 5 games….And the Hawks have scored the 2nd most goals in the league. 1 behind the leaders. Offense doesnt appear to be the issue.

  3. Right 23 goals …11 by AA,Panik,Kane 1g.Panarin has 5pts in 2 games,4 games witout a Pts.Toews 2 pts .Hawks lost 2 Games by 1 goals …we need more goals for sure .and to get more goals we need players on the ice not in P box …..
    the guys need to stay focus on their game ..and stop getting bad penalty …
    But its only 6 games in the season ….
    Go Hawks go

  4. Pak line plus 12 toews line plus 9 krueger line plus 3 and hossa line -3 overall 5 on 5 forwards plus 21 and getting job done but pk a different story.

  5. Brutal penalty killing by the Hawks this year. 12 goals against of 22 total. Home PK of 46%. Away PK 37.5%.

    Worst in the league by a wide margin at 43%. Next closest is 69%

    It’ll be a long year if that side of things isn’t improved.

  6. Just lost another game v.s. Calgary ,.,due to Dumb penalties and poor P.K.
    Toews needs to get his ass in gear, we need him contributing offensively for sure .
    He has picked up right where he left off last year .

  7. The Good, Bad and Ugly from these posts-
    Good-although a Captain Obvious comment-it is very true—
    “Worst in the league by a wide margin at 43%. Next closest is 69%
    It’ll be a long year if that side of things isn’t improved.”

    The Bad-(if only for the use of the English language)–
    “the guys need to stay focus on their game ..and stop getting bad penalty …”

    The Ugly–
    “Toews needs to get his ass in gear, we need him contributing offensively for sure .”
    The guy works his ass off every shift-fighting for his team, doing the hard, dirty work all the time and he gets this–contribution isn’t always in the points race
    Wow
