Hull: Blackhawks Would Be ‘Tough Team To Beat’ In Playoffs

If the regular season were to end today, the Chicago Blackhawks would face the Phoenix Coyotes in the first round of the playoffs without home ice advantage.

But with nine games left, the Blackhawks can still improve their playoff seed.

“This team, it seems, when things are in a position when they have to play, they seem to be able to come to life and attack the way they played last year to win the Stanley Cup,” Blackhawks legend Bobby Hull said on the Danny Mac Show.

The team has secured 14 points in their last 10 games and are starting to show more frequent flashes of the dominant squad from a season ago. So with all of the talent and experience still on the roster, not many Western Conference teams would be excited to see the Blackhawks in the first round.

“As long as this team can get into the playoffs,” Hull said, “I don’t care where they are, at home or on the road, as long as they attack, they’re going to be a tough tough team to beat.”

    Poor bobby must have taken a few too many blows from Ferguson back in the day. The Hawks are a decent team with a decent coach, but no way are they better than Detroit, Pittsburgh, San Jose, Philly and one or two others. There problems include an awful defense on power plays, very thin lines that can’t produce if there are any injuries, a goalie who is on the verge of burnout being overworked by their coach (he has now started almost 40 straight games after playing in 12 his whole career), defense men who prefer offense to defense and often get caught up ice, and a goalie who is the worst puck handler in the history of the NHL.

    Better luck next year Bobby!
