    Kane will not make a difference….chalk up another loss to this poor example of a professional sports team. Take away the C from Toews and the A from Kane, their so called interviews prove they have no idea what it means to be an accountable leader…..both have failed miserably.

    Sounds like the Borg and Khaira and Stillman all still out

    So another game for Philips and Strome presumably

    Great news for sure, see what results it brings.

    Wrap thought same thing, then saw where Colliton had long chat with Strome at end of practice, often means a scratch. Maybe Sens in town needing Center help due to injuries, he finally is moved.

    Maybe Kurashev between Cat and Hardman, and Dach with Kub and Kane, leaving other 2 lines the same.

    The Hawks are now “Doug Plank” viewing.

    There was a player on the Bears in the 70’s/80’s named Doug Plank. He wore #46 and played safety. Supposedly Buddy Ryan (Bears defensive coordinator) named his infamous “46 defense” after Plank. Plank played in the late 70’s and early 80’s but was gone from the team by the time the Bears won the Super Bowl in 85/86.

    The Bears were a lousy team for most of Planks tenure so, being a diehard Bears fan, I couldn’t not watch them. What I ended up doing was watching the game hoping to see Plank put a big hit on someone. He was known for demolishing guys as they received a pass and most games he did just that. It was more likely I would see Plank light someone up than the Bears win the game … so that was my main reason to tune in and watch.

    There have been other players I would watch over the years that served the same purpose – on the Hawks and on the Bears. But the general idea was the same – bad team with little chance to win but exciting player to watch.

    Kane returning to action has now made the game tonight “Doug Plank” viewing for me.

    ER
    Kane has been a big yawn this year… he ain’t right or Father time is taking it’s toll- as it has on the rest o the “core” all ready.

    pretty sure 46 D was named- due to 1 safety back… 10 in the box… just a guess

    Bluto, I could be wrong (geezer memory is iffy) but I recall Buddy Ryan quipping something about the “46” was named for Plank but Ryan was a wiseguy and could have said it tongue-in-cheek.

    2021 Kane isn’t close to what we’ve come to expect but he still has moments – like Plank had many poor plays but he still knocked the snot out of a guy every now and then.

    ER- yes, Buddy did say he specifically named it that with Plank in mind.

    I for similar reasons watched those bears games for a certain Walter Payton. Whether Plank or Payton, this Hawks team has neither. Kane doesn’t seem right and the Captain either needs more time or a change of scenery. This feels more like watching an Orland Woolridge bulls team, if he put up 50 they had a chance. If our goalie stands on their collective head, we might have a chance.

    OK! I have a plan, and most of you won’t like it. I have been thinking about this since the “Beach” story broke. What if we kept Colliton as HC? This way we are really assured of getting a top-2 pick! Then, we trade Kane for Jack Eichel. Since we are in “losing mode”, we let Eichel get his surgery and then let him recover for 2022. The salary’s are the same, but Kane is a FA after 2023. This works well for Buffalo because they will be out from a $10.5M salary which they can use on their next star(s), but now they are one superstar away from making a long run in the playoffs – Enter Kane-Man! We also trade Fluery for a 2nd round pick, just to make sure that we indeed have the worst record in hockey. We wouldn’t want this future HOF throwing a monkey wrench in our plans by standing on his ear every night like he did the other night against STL. Then, we send all of our young guys to Rockford to get significant minutes, especially special team minutes. We play Gustafson and DeHaan nearly 25 minutes a night, you can never be too careful as we are looking to lock up a top-2 pick. And, finally we let Toews play 20-25 minutes a night and absolutely play him on back-to-back nights. Once this season is over, we bring in a credible GM, a respected NHL coach, draft Shane Wright, and have our C’s next year with Eichel, Dach, Wright, and Toews. This way we bring in a Reichel, and the Rockford boys into a winning atmosphere and proper development and look to re-build and restore!

    Well, tonight’s the night for 2 points ! Time to make a statement with the Senators ! POPS 4

    How bout Bluto and Beer League go hand in hand for a long walk off a short pier ,you guys are big downers .
    Kane is a point per game guy even though he is playing with to awfully small line mates . Never one to be a defensive player he is doing what he is kinda paid to do .

    How bout call out Kubalik ,and the rest of the slow starting forwards and our new acquisitions who no more than castaways , mostly from other struggling teams or teams that realized the players shortcomings .

    What a hell of a crew of misfits , Being lead by a clueless coaching staff .

    Sounds like you’re a member of the #StanCultClub.

    He’s the one who put together the abomination, from the coaching staff on down.

    kane is fun to watch and does things most aren’t able to do, but don’t ever compare kane with doug plank. kane quite obviously the more talented athlete, but plank played balls out on every play of every game. no one will ever accuse kane of that. ryan did name the defense after plank not only because he was a fierce hitter, but because he brought everything he had on every play.

    1093 points and plus 55 tells you all you need to know about kane’s efforts on defense in his career.

    No Dollarbill i am not a member of some made up fantasy club that you have in your head , that is all you .
    I like to deal in facts …not guesses or speculations…Yeah we are Stan`s team no doubt about it .
    This is a cluster f&#k like no one could ever imagine .
    The last time i checked …hockey is a team sport .
    This team lacks heart ,soul ,grit , coaching strategies ,the ability to finish but ….over the course of the 82 game schedule we will get better ,we will begin to gel ,we are in a dark place right now but it to shall pass.

    Go Hawks go .

    Dollar Bill: The #StanCultClub finally has been reduced to rubble around here now. They’ll just come up with the usual line blender suggestions nowadays or deny they knew ol’ StanBo.

    Tommy. I like your plan almost entirely. The only tweek would be to move Toews at the deadline. Some playoff team will be desperate for a faceoff specialist.

    With this comment, but the comment above is worthy of the #SCC

    In one sentence your pessimistic and the next your optimistic. I can’t say for certain as constituted that it will pass. And I’m sure most here want the Hawks to succeed, so with Stan now gone those chances have gone up.

    That’s a good thing, Stan needed to go as he wasn’t capable of doing either a retool or a rebuild.

    Is Shaw in covid protocol? He has been absent from the pre/post game show for weeks. Or maybe he just said “f@#k it” as he grew weary of colby cohen’s analysis. Cohen’s vast nhl experience of 3 games with the Av’s must have spooked Shaw. This club is in disaray on so many levels. What a joke.

    Waiting for Bluto’s eloquent response to “Kane has been a big yawn this year” after tonight…

    My response. Yes- I do need to eat some crow here… and deserve some abuse from the crowd- OK

    Kane is still one of best passers in league… But the days of him taking over games… and doing the one man O zone rope-a-dope skate around are mostly behind him. How many times has he done the one man O zone skate around this year? I have not seen it– but must admit- usually only watch a period here or there… cuz team has been awful.

    yes- he can still put in 25 + goals… but my eyes tell me- he is NO longer “show time” skating wise.
    Still quick, still has incredible IQ /anticipation skills- still show time passes will happen- but not in same dominant fashion as few years ago.

    kinda like 19 few years ago– he was capable of 5-10 game stretches of dominance… but in past years– it was a nightly dominant performance.

    just saying

    yes- 88 scored 4 pts versus crappy Sens
