I’m sure all of you who are interested in the ‘Hawks have seen this by now:

http://chicagosports.chicagotribune.com/sports/hockey/blackhawks/cs-080124chicago-blackhawks-columbus-blue-jackets,1,3413273.story

I had the unfortunate experience of being at last night’s game.  Uninspired, disorganized play at both ends of the ice.  Khabibulin had a rare great game, keeping the team in a game it had little business being in.  “Boos” were frequent and deserved.

So I’m glad Savvy went off on these guys.  The way they played last night isn’t going to cut it.  “They have to commit to the Indian,” he says.  I love it.

Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history that has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and their freedoms.

“They have to commit to the Indian,”

Oh, thank God. I thought Toko was working with the Hawks now. This is all right. They’ll be fine.

Yeah, I read that too. This time it wasn’t one of the kids criticizing the team. Hope it works.

I’ve often said that the difference between Tinky and Steve Rosenbloom is that Steve doesn’t take himself seriously. Yes, he can be a F***tard at times, especially when you can’t figure out whether or not he’s saying something with his tongue in cheek. However, he did give a shout out to Denis Savard and “Commit to the Indian”.

Yes, I do too, but not in regards to the Blackhawks.

The Hawks had gotten by on the road with a paltry offense and just enough defense to get the shootout wins.  While I’m not a big fan of booing the home team, if they were as bad as Roman says, it might be just the thing to put a fire under their rear ends.  Don’t know if it’s a good thing or bad thing that they have to sit over the All-Star break rather than getting right back on the ice and showing some spark. 

I think the team was starting to get complacent, figuring they weren’t nearly as bad as the teams from the past few seasons and the house is starting to fill up.  If they want to prove the first and continue the second, it’s time to get moving.

As someone with two jerseys, why is the F-tard making such a big deal about “commit to the Indian”?  Talk about trying to make something out of nothing.  Anybody with a lick of common sense (which OF COURSE excludes the F-tard) knew what Savard was referencing.  Then out of his tail he calls it “the coolest jersey in sports” (which it is in my opinion).  What an F-tard.

I’ve only one jersey myself, and I hate agreeing with F***tard, but it is the coolest.

BTW, the parser will automatically place the * in the word F***tard. So you don’t have to censor it yourself. Just express yourself.

After printing out the article to line the cat box with, I went out and ordered one of the shirts; no I’m (edit: not)behind it, but wish I was…

Savard nailed it in his rant, it’s a trend I’ve noticed over the course of the season. Not enough fore & back checking, too much poke checking in front, not enough blasting the man off the puck. There needs to be a better balance between finesse & physical play.

I haven’t gotten the opportunity to see them on the tube, but what you’re saying fits in perfectly with some other sources.

Why did tinky have to bring the CHIEF into it. Was it to show he is on top of all things politically correct. You know, like being called a fag.
