    Wow that loss to the Canadians really took the wind out of the US sails and now the US are out of the WJHC. I was hoping they would have done better but not beat Canada of course. Go Canada and let’s hope Russia and Sweden pound each other.

    As for TT… i saw the Finland-Czech game and he was on all the PP’s but refused to shoot and passed the puck every time even when he was in the better postion to shoot. Teams would key on that quickly, kind of like Kaberle on the point would never shoot.

    G-bladz agree- TT last year in WJC played more point (like Sharp has of late) and shot a lot more… the Fins 5 on 3 PP looked like Hawks last year- too much pass- no shots!!!

    IMO – TT fits Hawks to a T (Pun intended)… his passing/vision/ quick puck movement is awesome… furthermore- the Fins D men really didn’t join or pinch- In Hawks, aggressive D men (like 7, 4, 2, 8 will get so many grade A “back door plays” w/ TT on ice)… Hawks shooters/speed be ready… TT is coming next year!!!

    Hartman looked very strong in the games that I saw. He played big minutes in all situations in the 3rd period when they were trying to get even with Canada and he scored a goal and was +2 in the loss to Russia. Also I remember him saying at the draft that he expected to get bigger based on others in his family – he sure looks bigger than his listed size of 5 ft 11. He will likely finish the year at Rockford once the junior season is over and it will be interesting to see how he performs at the higher level.

    It looks like Kevin Hayes is really coming into his own at BC. I really like Hinostroza at ND too, speaking of which Hino & Stephen Johns vs Kevin Hayes & Chris Calnan will square off the day after tomorrow at Frozen Fenway on the 4th. That should be a good game. Hopefully the end of this year we could have an influx of new blood come in for the Hogs/Hawks, i.e Teräväinen, K. Hayes, Johns, Paliotta, Holl… Wow. That’s quite a crop of NCAA prospects.

    Also as far as T.T looking to pass first, I think that has a lot to do with him always being the youngest in the Finish Men’s League, but just like Kaner has finally started too think shoot first and has opened up even more passing space/lanes for himself as a result, I think T.T. will learn the same thing one he get’s to North America and comes under the tutelage of the Blackhawks Staff and Players.

    T has 9 points of teams 19 goals.

    It says he’s 180, that’s the same weight as our guys that height… Get stronger & waahla. Its going to be a thing of beauty.


    Can you say Puck Possession. Ah yeah.

    Man Hayden looked so strong at the Hawks prospect camp, surprised he’s struggling. Hartman looks good.

  • January 4, 2014 at 2:41 pm

    T has 12 points of teams 24 goals.

  • January 5, 2014 at 1:33 pm

    2 more assists for TT in Gold medal game so far… 14 points thus far… 2 years WJC’s = 27 points… not bad…

    also- Kudos for the Hawks/SB for going outside of Canada in last summer’s draft to find Talent in Swedes and U.S. Hockey… Watching the U20 Canada team- Not impressive!!!
