Not sure how long Colliton's "defensive system" gets replaced by something better. Last season, the hope was that a full training camp would help the veterans adjust. Can anyone explain how Colliton's "system" is different than a pick up game played on a frozen pond in Muck Jack, Saskatchewan?

i think he's kind of handcuffed with the obvious deficiency they have to work with as far as the players go. no matter what system they use, it's not going to be very good.

i know it's only been two games, but having a defense as bad as this one isn't exactly a recipe to making the playoffs.

Speaking of defensive issues, Alexander Nylander is going to be a healthy scratch in game 3. If you recall, we traded possibly our best young blue liner for him

Jimmy Stewart was in another movie than Its a Wonderful Life?

Also, that movie has another classic scenes about broken windows.

"window that is slightly ajar" might be more accurate at least through the first 15 games.

Win number one in the books. That was genuinely entertaining and they looked pretty good, dominating the 2nd.

Yeah that was promising. The Oilers came into the game 5-0-0 and had looked pretty good so far

Hawks played well last night. I had to listen to the Caps TV broadcast and they were saying that Holtby was standing on his head. I'm not sure I'd go that far but he was very good. Kirby Dach reminded me a lot of Teuvo's debut in that the game seemed to be moving fast around him. He got better as the game went on. It's going to be interesting to see where he is 10 games in. The adjustment he has to make is matching up with bigger, more physical players. If they send him back to juniors, he'll dominate based on his size and ability but does that get him closer to NHL ready? I'm not so sure. I'd like to see him center the 4th line and do some bum slaying for a few games. Give him about 5 games centering Nylander and whomever and see where he is. If he's ready, he switches places with Kampf on the 3rd line. That 3rd line of Saad, Kampf & Kubalik has been really good. They keep the puck or get it back and put a lot of pressure on the opposing team. If they started scoring that would really open things up for the top two lines.

The Blackhawks are a disaster

So are the Bulls and Bears and possibly Cubs but this is just a thread for the hockey team

It's gonna be awhile. They're gonna be paying for all the cap circumvention for a couple of more years still. Totally worth it still.

This is mostly true. Keith is the only one on a cap circumvention contract now that Hossa is gone. Seabrook's Bobby Bonilla -esque contract came after the CBA that retro punished those moves.

Speaking of Seabrook, expressing his frustration after being a healthy scratch again said he could still play "For Somebody". The speculation is that either he'd be willing to waive his no trade or that he wants a different head coach. Trading Seabrook would be really difficult unless they retain half his salary. Even then they might have to include an actual prospect like they did when they got rid of Bickell.

Firing Colliton seems like the path of least resistance. His "system" is either completely stupid or merely a bad fit for the personnel that the Hawks have. If he's lost Seabrook, he's lost the team. Bowman probably doesn't want to admit that he was a bad hire but he has to do something or he's on the hot seat too.

How so? Brent Seabrook is one of the least consequential players on the team. He's bad at hockey. He is going to be shuffled aside at some point during this contract, it's just a matter of when and how. Why would he be the linchpin of the team?

Evidently he was one of the few voices that was defending Colliton last season when things were going badly. He's an Alternate Captain and that, I would assume, counts for something. Colliton already lost the other Alternate Captain (Keith) and you'd have to wonder about Toews who has been struggling this season in more ways than just not scoring. Most of the rest of the team is too young to step up and say anything. The veterans might see this as a lack of respect and that usually doesn't play well unless the coach is an established winner.

To paraphrase the Orange County Sheriff, Seabrook draws a lot of water in this town. You (Colliton) don't draw horsefeathers.

Boqvist is better than Gustafson offensively, can't be any worse defensively and is a RH shot. This move makes lots of sense.
