heading to the stadium in about 15 minutes!!

I’m really excited to see all of our tryouts and AHL’ers play against the majority of the Hawks best (Hossa, Kane, Toews, Keith, etc.) Hell, our TOP scoring line is Justin Abdelkader-Darren Helm-Chris Conner. So while this may be a blowout, I’m eager to see how these guys stack up… I’m particularly excited to watch the Nyquist, Emmerton, Brunnstrom line. Gonna be fun… until the Hawks fans start yelling and threatening us, which seems to happen just about every Wing’s game at the United Center since I moved to Chicago 10 years ago. Of course, I think it’s because I can only afford cheap seats. The few times I’ve sat in the lower bowl it’s remarkably more civil. I guess when your tix are $80 a pop, you aren’t looking to fight an opposing fan.

Any update on George, Paul?  I haven’t seen him around too much lately. 

I hope the rookies put on a show tonight against the Hawks best.  LGRW.

Can someone tell me, why gamecenter is working for this game, even though it’s on versus.  Did the nhl do something about that situation?

I live in 39 miles northwest of the Joe in South Lyon and I’m getting the game. That’s weird…

George is not so well. Have had some setbacks. :/

Sucks to hear that George is having a rough time of it.  Hope to see him back soon.

Mr. Brunnstrom acts like he wants to be a Red Wing.  I like what I see from Jan Mursak, and I am sad he got hurt, but I like what I am seeing from Brunnstrom more, preseason or not.

I hate to sound grumpy in the preseason, but Ericsson’s earning his -2. Bleh.

It’s funny how Chicago has only been able to score on the power play so far. Brunnstrom is going to make this team.

The lesson here seems to be when it’s system against stardom, the team that’s preached its system to its prospects, farmhands and try-outs might just prevail over a near-“regular season quality” team.

Interesting watching the kids and tryouts without most of the regulars around.  They know they can’t rely on Z, D, Lids, etc to come in and save the day.  Less deferring to others, less waiting for someone else to make something happen.

I totally agree.  I know its the preseason the Hawks probably aren’t giving their best, but the scrubs are doing a pretty bang up job on the Hawks regulars so far.
