    This is a talented group but I wonder how they would fare without 2 4 7 27 in front of them.

    If you watched the entire season, the whole team was bailed out plenty of times by CC’s stellar play. Actually, I believe he was our best player during the regular season. CC got us to the playoffs this year.

    Top 3 in GF and goal diff. Everyone contributed and Crow played great.

    Kane was the best player until that cheap shot. Would have been awesome to see him chase the scoring title.

    Kane will go for the scoring title next season. Crawford has been our #1 guy all year.

    I didn’t realize the Tony Amonte connection with Crow. I’m guessing that pick came from when Amonte bolted to Phoenix.

    Crawford has been the Hawks MVP this year, especially in the playoffs.

    However, kudos to the HC for making the goalie change when he needed to.
