  1. Benchmarks, OK, what you are saying is that they are fortunate to have kept their health and been on an excellent team. Today’s teams play 80 plus regular season games and a max 28 cup games running close to 9 months. It is a lot easier to pile up the numbers now. When there were only 6 teams they played 3 games a week (Sat, Sun. & a week day) and the cup was two rounds (semi & finals). It took more years, bumps and burses to get to the above numbers.

    Kane is carrying the Hawks and having a # 9 Hull year. I wish him well!
    Captain Toews has along way to go to meet Stoch Guoth’s resume.
    Keith IS (if not far better) a Stapleton/Piliote the real thing.
    Crow is nowhere near a Tony O. But, what #1 tender today is?

  2. Tab-anyone approaching 500th post repeating same thing? Just curious if any of the usual suspects needed recognition-

  3. …. Speaking of posts, Dowell goal and assist tonight +2, Morin assist and +2 also. I will state again — w/ 100% specificty — dont tell me Dowell cant be more effective than Mashinter playing 6-9 mins per night. Dowell is a heart and soul guy. As for Morin, see my prior 47 posts re him. Good evening.

  4. Nice list of milestones Tab. How about Coach Q moving into 2nd place for career games coached and 2nd for most regular season wins behind the one and only Scotty Bowman?

  5. Iceman. I agree on Morin. The knock on him was top 6 talent but no room for him. Well now there is room! Someone needs to be willing to take more shots on the top line with Toews and Hossa so as to create opportunities for scoring. Rebounds can be created with more shot taking and I think some of the younger players right now are only willing to take a shot if they think there is a good chance it’s going in. It’s interesting that TT is scoring on better than 10% of his shots, but has only taken 37 shots in 22 games. He needs to start shooting more and looked a little better in his last game. The only one who is doing really horrible on the team with goals to shots ratio is Daley with 39 shots and 0 goals, and I guess not far behind is Kruger with 0 goals on 27 shots.. There is a reason Patrick Sharp scored 239 goals with the Hawks. He took over 2100 shots!

  6. Yoda– A very good point and observation…2 vs. Winnipeg and 2 vs Nashville and the Canucks…could be a Waterloo moment if we are not up to the challenge. Lots of home ice advantage through that stretch and we are a very good team but we need to step it up thats for sure. Hopefully Morrisons theory that January and February doldrums will be better than it has been for us in the past holds to be accurate. We sure as heck cannot take anything for granted in the Central and every game/point is crucial.
