    Great to see the Hawks piling on great Offense. Hope this trend continues all season long, something that was missing most of last year.

    well Haydon, Forsling, Kero really playing some inspired hockey. Unbelievable call last night with that offsides and no explanation. If Seabrook kicked the puck into the zone its the only way I can see it.

    So, 9 games in and there's definitely a lot to like about this team. Crawford playing well, Forsberg seems like he should be a serviceable backup. The 1st, 2nd and 4th lines (with Wingels, not Kero) seem to be coming together nicely. On D, while the group certainly isn't great they at least seem to have 8 legit NHL d-men, and hopefully the young guys continue to progress as they gain experience and a true top 6 will emerge.

    That really just leaves the 3rd forward line. Ugh. Not gelling AT ALL. I don't think it's for lack of talent. Sharp, Anisimov and Debrincat all have NHL level skill, but together they just aren't getting it done and are getting beaten like a rug defensively. A definite change is in order for that line. Any ideas?
