I agree OP. If the Jets won the Cup, I know I wouldn't want them to win another for at least 10 years.

Leafs fans must be very satisfied.

Not to worry Canuck faithfull as Hawk fans are enjoying this streak but not getting overly excited.
It's nice and all but as we all know it's how you finish that counts!

Besides The only reason Chicago is on this streak is because there is no East vs West games. I don't think Chicago would be on this hot streak if they had faced Pittsburgh, Rangers, or Boston.

I can't tell this if this is the dumbest thread I've ever read or a brilliant satire. Sadly I think it's the former. So to summarize what I've read so far on this thread, teams who have won the cup shouldn't be allowed to be competitive for at least 10 years because someone else should have a turn at winning the cup. What do you think this is? T-Ball? Another megamind suggested purposely injuring their star players rather than having to compete with them on a level playing field. Wow, just speechless

Your excuses are just plain BS and childish. Anaheim who set the previous record was in an 82 game season and they played teams from both conferences.

I hate Chicago as much as the next guy, but you have to give credit when its due. Saying a team doesn't deserve to win the Cup because they won it just a few years ago is absurd.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Your right it is absurd but I just don't want to see the Canada Stanley Cup drought continue for another season. The Cup hasn't been won by a Canadian team since 1993.

No biggie really. They will inevitably crash and burn, be it in their next game, or in the WCF against us, I don't care. Despite what you might think, this streak is probably taking a lot out of them.

Also, if they hit the playoffs and hit, say, Rinne on a hot streak in round 1, then I can see them going out. Happened to us vs Quick last year.

Happened to them vs Smith last year too.

Playoffs are a new season. Doesn't matter what they're doing right now, as we've learned with winning the Presidents Trophy. No one cares at the seasons' end.

Let them puff up their egos some more...if they come crashing down it'll make it twice as impactful.

They're a talented team - I give them that. But the cockiness that coincides with that is nauseating. And the antics are appalling...a nice shot from behind into the boards last night in the closing seconds? Karma should come knocking soon.

Lots of Chicago hate on here...understandably!...To Chicago's credit,at least they play an exciting brand of hockey...Unlike the sometimes boring,stifling styles of the Kings,Preds,Blues,Coyotes and Wild.

This Chicago team is playing with the speed and skill of the 2011 Canucks. Passing and puck possession at its finest. Normally I would say that a big, disciplined, defensive team would knock them off in the playoffs but the NHL has been calling any slight obstruction this year. If they continue to make those calls, I'd be afraid of matching up against Chicago.

You know what they say the bigger they are the harder they fall. Once this winning streak ends i have a feeling the Hawks will fall hard. They also haven't had any long term injuries this season so wait for it.
Oh and one more thing, if Hossa gets injured again their screwed!

I blame the Canucks. They should have taken care of Duncan Keith in their first game of the season. None of this streak nonsense would have been going on.

Congratulations to the Hawks.....if we drew the Hawks in the first round (us 8th and them 1st) of the playoffs this year...I would still like our chances.Why?....because the Hawks goaltending is going to come back down to Earth eventually,,our goaltending tandem beats theirs.

I also believe that finishing first brings more expectations and pressure..I don't think the Canucks will the Presidents Trophy this year,which may not be such a bad thing.

After winning the presidents trophy twice in a row and falling short you think we'd know better than anyone that regular season dominance doesn't always translate into playoff success.

While I agree your goaltending is better the hawks are deeper on defense and roll four lines. The game last week showed it. Schneider stood on his head and the nucks were outplayed pretty handily. Wouldn't be a pushover of a series but it would be a tall order for van to win a seven game seri es as the rosters are currently made up.

what makes you guys think they wont do another hot streak right after they lose their first regulation game? Do you guys even seen these guys play outside of them playing the Canucks? They made them stupid Oilers look like fools tonight, they also made us look like fools too. Luckily we are still a powerful team, not as poweful as them, but a powerful team, and have offensive dmans. These guys are for real, and I think the Chicago Blackhawks are the number favorite to win the Stanley cup followed by L.A Kings, and then unfortunatley then its the Vancouver Canucks. Unless Mike Gillis finds us the following piece.

a puck rushing offensive defencemen.
OR a Norris calibre defencemen.
OR a top pairing dman.

Lets face it, we don't have the strengh on defence we had in 2011. We are also missing an offensive dman like Christian Ehrhoff. Huge pieces missing right there. Our defence is still very strong, but not like 2011. If MIke Gillis does not get us those pieces, unlkely we will reach the Stanley cup finals.

I totally disagree on the Hawks having a deeper defence.

Hawks top 2 > Canucks top 2, but after that if you go player to player comparison Canucks are "deeper" on defence, but as a team Hawks play a far superior defensive game.

We were outplayed somewhat,in stretches,but in no way dominated by the Hawks..We didn't really have Kesler (still not there yet) or Booth,,in reality,we were completely missing our second line.(that is a game changer..and a big deal.!!) .What Chicago has going for them currently is youth..Toews and Kane are coming into their prime playing years.

Two years ago the Canucks were the dominant team (almost got knocked off by Chicago)...Three years ago,the Hawks had an amazing team (almost knocked off by Nashville)...The playoffs are a completely kettle of fish..It's more down to 'who's hot,and who's not'

Hawks fans sure are confident right now(understandably). It's just too bad the Cup isn't handed out in late February.

Hawks still dont have steve montador back from a concussion and just started practicing again. Unless the nucks can go eight deep on the blue line the hawks are deeper on defense. You can argue the quality of your bottom four is better then the hawks. Id disagree with you but you could try and argue it. The numbers say differently since johnny oduya and nik hjalmarsson became their second pair last year

I'm glad to hear you are staying grounded Darth. I was just basing that statement on the spike of Hawk trolls on here in the last few days. Had me wondering if I missed the 2013 Cup presentation.

As of right now, I'd agree that Hawks D is way better than Nucks D. Since when has Oduya been such a stud? I am very curious, though, to see if it holds up.

Since acquiring Oduya last February we've only lost twice in regulation during the regualr season and a total of 6 times if you include the playoffs. I don't know where this Oduya has come from but I like it. But the big questions is the playoffs, he totally lost him game against Phoenix and most Hawks fans are worried about this year too. Although Oduya will have had more playing time with the team and he's really click with Hjalmarsson, on some nights they are the best defensive pair.
