In trouble.


A lot of the internet folks and “experts” said that the Blackhawks would be better matched up against the Red Wings in the second round rather than the Sharks. A lot of the same people said that the Blackhawks would win the series easily against the Red Wings and that no team can beat them in a best-of-seven series. The Blackhawks win the first game. Then, they lose the next one. And the one after that. And then the one after that also.

Now, I wish they would play the games on paper.

In my lifetime, the Red Wings have always beat the Blackhawks in the playoffs. My earliest memory was in ’95 when the Blackhawks went down 4-1. Likewise for 2009. This year, it could be the same. These guys are a pain in the ass. I was probably the happiest guy out there when I found out they were switching conferences. Unless they face each other in the Stanley Cup (I’ll be shitting myself in fear if that happens), the Blackhawks won’t have to worry about seeing them in the playoffs ever again.

So here are the Blackhawks down 3-1. If they don’t want to hear about how the 1991 Blackhawks went out of the playoffs in horrendous fashion by spending half of the games with someone on their team in the penalty box against the North Stars, then they will win three in a row and advance to the Western Conference Finals.

For the love of God, please win three in a row.

    Agree totally Fro. Toews has been M.I.A. This is beginning to remind me of the Bulls-Heat series. Win the first game, then proceed to lose 4 in a row. Extremely disappointing.

    Well, if the last few years taught us anything, it’s that the best team doesn’t always win in the playoffs. The only sport where the best team usually wins in the playoffs is basketball. You look at baseball, football and hockey, it’s all about who gets hot at the right time. The Stanley Cup is the hardest trophy to win in sports.

    I just found out that I will be there for Game 5 on Saturday night.

    I never wanted the Red Wings. Fuck re-seeding! However, we beat them every game this year, so this bullshit performance is inexcusable. The Hawks weren’t shut out all season and now twice in a row?!?! What a waste. I remember that team that lost to the North Stars. Ironically, the Hawks weren’t that good the next year, but got to the Cup Finals-including sweeping Detroit in the Conference Finals.

    Recent President’s Trophy winners have shit the bed in the playoffs. 8 of the last 9 did not win the Cup. Only 1 of those 8 even MADE IT to the finals. 4 lost in the First Round in the playoffs. There seems to be a certain self-satisfaction that comes with winning the trophy that dampens motivation for the playoffs-Fuck the trophy.

    I think this series is done. I thought it was done after it was 1-1 and I haven’t been able to watch the last two games at all. If it gets to Game 7 I will watch, otherwise, just another great regular season ending in heartbreak for Chicago. Why not?

  4. Fro Dog Says:

    Actually, shut out just once. Although, it feels like they were shutout these last three games. They only scored one goal the previous two. That no-goal call in Game 3 seemed to be the turning point so to speak.

    The Red Wings won the Stanley Cup in 2009 after winning the Presidents’ Trophy. Vancouver won it in 2011 and promptly pissed away Games 6 and 7 against the Bruins. So, at least the Blackhawks aren’t the Canucks and at least we aren’t fans of those bags of dicks. I’d love to see them get really close again just so I could see those idiots trash their city like they did in ’94 and just two years ago.

    I agree though about that trophy. Fuck it.

  5. Nemo Says:

    Yeah, I guess the Hawks got a goal in Game 3. Sure, we at least won it once, so we are better than the Canuckleheads. However, we have the core of a recent championship team still playing and to be getting smacked by a Red Wings team with so many younger players on defense is galling. I can’t believe that they have the psychological edge on us. It’s making 2010 seem more like a flash in the pan.

    I once read in a book about the original 6 that way back when these 2 families or friends (I cant remember and im too lazy to google it) owned the Chicago Blackhawks, something happened and one of them went to do his own thing…. The Detroit Redwings. Maybe its a curse, maybe its voodoo , maybe its the ultimate “Fuck You!” , maybe its they played 800 times, either way the Hawks are not playing the way they began the season and its time to start. By the way… Fire Dale Sveum

    so i googled it… looked up a man named James E. Norris, this guy was all about chicago sports, he was one of the original funders of Chicago Stadium and just wanted to be part of bringing hockey to Chicago but was shit on by McLaughlin and went to Detroit and started the Cougars which turned into the Redwings, great read…. what could have been??? well never know

    If you’re reading this, I encountered the first meatball fan who commented to me about Urlacher’s retirement as I was working today. He said he should have taken the $1.2 million contract the Bears offered him. I said I agreed. I told him the same thing I told everyone here that he was probably offered less than that from other teams and that’s why he decided to retire.

    Then, he proceeded to make the wonderful comment of wanting Urlacher to become a coach in some capacity with the Bears. The first thing that came to my mind was “If Chucky was here, he would grab him by his neck and with all of his ANGER, shake it back it back and forth until he turned blue”.

    It’s fans like these (and Yeti) that make us look bad.

  9. chucky Says:

    You’re kind of close Fro. I wouldn’t have grabbed him by the neck. I’d have grabbed him by the fucking nutsack. Then I would tell him to go and mow Al Yellons lawn. I fucking hate people like that.

  10. cubs suck Says:

    Fro how was the game? did they get the anthem right? united center nachos are fucking great!!

  11. Fro Dog Says:

    The anthem is always right at the games. I couldn’t hear all of it because it was pretty loud where I was sitting. Yes. The nachos are great. I try not to eat before I get there but I was running late to begin with. My dinner consisted of two hot dogs, nachos, a coke and a bottle of water after which totaled nearly $30. I think the food is much better there than at Soldier Field. The Bears have buffets you can go to if you’re sitting in the United Club but it’t not even worth it. They cost about $50 and after one dish of seafood, you’re full. The guys at Fire Ron Turner and myself always buy cheap seats.

    Hey Guys,

    You know, I’ve been thinking. Perhaps I was a little too tough on Sorry Anus a couple of weeks back. He actually hit a homerun that counted for something today. With that dinger and those 2 RBI, he’s now tracking to finish the year with 16’ish homers and a grand total of roughly 60 RBI…but, what do you expect for an annual pittance of $18,000,000? It’s not like we’re paying him “superstar” money, or anything crazy like that!!! Fuckin’ HACK!!!
