    Another Hat Trick for Kane and a Blackhawk marketing dream. Of course I already stated that in the previous post!

    If…if, if if, only Seabrooks post to post and along the line shot had gone in. Any wise betting person would have known the odds would then go over to the Blackhawks to win that game in OT. Looking at these clowns playing now we would have gone to the finals…Tampa Bay looks good, forged by us last year. They would have been a worthy opponent. Also would be just to see us get our revenge on the Penguins, but none of it is to be. We were that close.

    If the Hart somehow ends up awarded to Crosby, the NHL loses what credibility it has left.

    Thinking back on the amazing season Kane had. Wow. I almost forgot about the 26 game point streak! That hat trick to get 100 points. The OT winner in St Louis. Just an unbelievable season for him. He deserves all the awards imo. And he better get something!

    Looking back I wonder what the Hawks season would look like without Kane on the team. Going over some posts from this site around training camp there were many internet experts that were trying to run Kane out of town. Thankfully the Hawks didn’t rush to judgement and stood by their star when he was being torn to shreds by press and ignorant people. If you want to have a good laugh go back and read some of those comments (Rufus). If this young man is not the MVP this season then nobody should be because without him the Hawks were sunk. The other two guys are great players and meant a lot to their teams but they aren’t Patrick Kane.

    If he doesn’t win the Hart, it would be a travesty. Nothing would surprise me though with this league. Mo hit it right on the head with the “East Coast bias” comment. Kane didn’t deserve the 2013 Conn Smythe, but he deserves this award by leaps and bounds above the competition.
