Got go see Hawks/Preds in person last night. A somewhat boring game until the 3rd. Brandon Saad is continuing to make his return a welcome one. Great to see a win, but it's frightening how bad our power play is.
Brent Seabrook is almost becoming a liability. If he is going to suck defensively, I wish he would at least dish some hits.
2-1/2 months later, and Saad hasn’t done jack since. In addition to Seabrook’s boat anchor deal, there are people openly talking about the uncomfortable subject of Toews and his complete lack of effectiveness. Panik, a bright spot last year has pretty much disappeared. Really missing Hossa as well.
My son and I were just discussing this last night. With Crawford out, I have a hard time seeing this team make the playoffs. We all knew this day was coming, but I didn’t think it would arrive this quickly.
Since this post, Panik has disappeared by force.
It for sure looks like time to pull the plug and ask some guys (except Kane) about waiving their no-trade. Not sure I see anyone willing to take on the Toews or Seabroook deals, though. Damn, this went south quickly.
