The 3rd Best Team In The Western Conference

from Tim Sassone of Between The Circles,

How good are the Hawks?

OK, it’s still somewhat early, but in my book they are the third best team in the Western Conference behind San Jose and Detroit, in whatever order you want to put them.

The Hawks have a terrific offense, terrific goaltending, a mobile and deep defense and a good coach.

Do the Hawks have weaknesses? Of course. They are somewhat small and don’t play overly physical, but those are things to worry about more come playoff time when it all tightens up. But for right now, with the rules as they are in today’s NHL, a fast, quick, high scoring team such as the Hawks, with their great goaltending, can be dominant.
