  1. Its the patience AFTER the fake that was so impressive…he skates on the ice with confidence…on the breakaway you could see that he knew he was going to finish. The great ones are all the same…the power of Knowing/Believing

  2. Nice goal by TT. But let’s not forget that wasn’t Rask or Quick he faked out of his goalie pads.

    I wish there was more coverage from training camp. Now that the boys are back on the ice – I want news, observations, highlights.

  3. Darling isn’t a rask or a quick yet, I’ve heard he’s been holding his own in this training camp. TT is a great player, let’s give the net minder and little credit

  4. And TT’s other goal looked like an 88 one timer vs. Kings 2013 PO’s!!!

    SKILLS!!!!

    Actually a nice feed from McNeill on 1st and Ver-beauty on the one-timer!!!

  5. ER, at that speed, there’s no difference between Darling, Rask and whomever…a goalie is helpless when a player comes at the net with that speed…you just hope the puck hits you…most unskilled players don’t have the hands to make a play at that speed…TT does.

    Wall, so right about TTs 2nd goal…great skill to one time that…

    Cam Barker has had a good camp so far, he levelled TT with a big hit…he wants to stick.

  6. He said he was fine after in post interview.

    We do not want Teravainen to have to wait longer like Smitty & Mo did.

  7. TT will start in Rockford… but there is no way he isnt on the roster come playoff time. He will play his way out of rockford, with a trade/injury opening a spot… just a matter of time…

  8. Tim G- my only concern- imo- TT will play better with higher IQ types/skaters… Don’t know if Hogs can play on TT’s Level… I did notice that McNeill (who is not on MY radar) was involved with TT on 2 recent “hi-lite type goals” recently… so perhaps some chemistry is there… OR McNeill is better/Smarter than I think!!!

    Can’t wait to see who steps up… and Who is moved!!!

  9. i would agree that TT will play better with the better guys, thus being capped by the level of talent in rockford… but the good thing is, is that the hawks have some talent for him to work with. He should make those around him better too, and the hawks will then see that.

    Like I said, he will (and should) start in RFD, but with a little maturation to the game over on this side of the pond, he shouldnt take long to get the call.

    I just dont see a reason why he would spend the whole in year in RFD. The ONLY way it happens is if the hawks stay healthy and Morin, Smith, and Versteeg all stay in Q’s good graces and hold down their roster spots with no questions.

    I mean the top 6 is set, Bicks, Shaw, Kruger are locked into spots. So those last 3 could be open. and more than likely morin or steeger will get in the doghouse (lets face it… morin is always in Q’s Doghouse)… so assuming they get the cap to a healthy spot somehow, TT should get some time with the big club. Even if he shuttles a little.

    But all in all, i fully expect him on the playoff roster.

  10. Remember though Wall that TT makes those around him better, so a Rockford line of TT centring McNeil and Ross would function very well IMO, plus McNeil and Ross would help to keep opponents honest with TT…

  11. I keep thinking that there is no way that TT can play the entire year in the NHL because he just isn’t big enough, yet. Then I remembered that Kaner was just about TT’s size when he broke into the league and look how he has done.

    Somehow these guys know how to avoid the big hits that wear them down and get them injured.

    It would be great to see Kaner, Tazer, Tuero, Hoss and Sharpie all together. Not to mention Keith, Seabrook, Johns, Richards and Hammer. The list goes on and on………………………………………
