man, i wish i knew how to put more than one capital letter in thread title. Nhl looks so lame. oh well.
with the way the hawks are built i'm glad it's a short season. not sure they're big enough to endure 82 games of pounding. built more for speed and skill. though jamal mayers taking on torres the other night for what torres did to hossa last year during the play-offs was good to see. they may not have the traditional enforcers, but they have already proven they're are willing to stick up for each other. usually a sign of good team chemistry.
Ugh... the Hawks! (Wings fanatic) Late start/truncated season aside, it still feels bizarre (and heartbreaking) to not see Lidstrom (and Homer) on the ice. Tootoo sporting the winged wheel is messing with my mind. Ha. Already a hand full of fights and a half an hour in penalty minutes. Been a while since we had a dude like that.
