Anyway Luongo is a good goalie and the nucks are a solid team. It won't be easy but the Hawks are gonna win this thing. And when they move up to the semifinals they will be that much better. If the Canucks get any more over confident and sit on their hands like the did in the third. WATCH AND LEARN
WATCH AND LEARN? How to lose hockey games? How to run around and take stupid penalties? How to get cocky and get caught up the ice? How to score illegal offside goals after getting manhandled for two periods? The Canucks can play way better. The Cawks peaked in game 5 against Calgary.

What you call a "dirty hit" I call a GREAT CHECK.

Eager throws a LATE headshot on a prone player and says he'd "do it again". Yet he chickens out from a challenge to scrap from Mitchell. That's the "Big Bad Hawks" summed up for you right there. Cheap, dirty and no balls whatsoever. Burish throws punches at the Sedins knowing they won't retaliate then runs away from O'Brien and hides between the zebra's legs. With the exception of your captain and that guy with the unpronouncable name, I'd be embarassed by your soft players. At least your team has the best hair in the league. Nobody can take that away from you.

And before you come back with the hair-pulling thing -- tell Keith to keep his fingers out of other players' mouths. Then again he looks like the type of guy who would enjoy having his fingers gently sucked on by another man.

Vancouver has been playing great..the Twins played great against the Blues...not gonna happen against the hawks...Vancouver got away with some questionable off-sides and most certainly got away with a few penalties....Chicago lost that game, Vancouver did not win it. Chicago in Six or maybe Seven.

Go Blackhawks! The Bhoulin Wall will withstand the lowly Canucks - they may have swept the Blues and won Game 1 of this match-up, but the Blackhawks will rise above and win this series.

The guy's a freaking warrior and without him at 100% the Hawks won't win. I love the fact that the Chi fans and press are buying the "flu" explanation. Shows how out of touch and delusional they are (or perhaps they have no hockey knowledge). The guy has a shoulder injury (some say major shoulder injury). The team won't disclose it b/c the nucks will exploit it.

Every team uses the "flu" injury at playoffs. If he has the flu, how does no other player have it? A few years ago (can't remember the team) the coach said flu when a player went down with a leg injury. Wake up Chicago reporters/fans or do you all have the flu?

Lots of yapping. Still whining about penalties. 'Hawks fans need to keep things in perspective. If it wasn't for Khabby having a good game 6 you would be 0 for the road. No doubt you would have killed the Flames in game 7 at home. However, you whipped up on a beat up team that had no power play. 0-46 going into the playoffs. That's over a game and a half with the man advantage and not scoring. The Flames limped into the playoffs. The Canucks were on fire the last month of the season and have way more talent than the Flames. You will be fortunate to win 2 games in this series.
