Can't believe Bucci included Hunter on his Caps list. A smart hockey guy should know better.

Yeah, they will make the playoffs with or without Kane because their roster is solid and deep. Toews, Desjardins, Kruger, Shaw, Tervanian, and Versteeg putting a lot of pucks in, Not to mention their defense is stacked as well with Keith, Seabrook, Van Reimsdyk, Rundblad and Daley seeing a lot of action. Also, both Crawford and Darling in the net are both capable of stepping it up a notch when the chips are down. Also noteworthy is that Q is a great coach!

They question for me in not whether they will make the playoffs but rather how far they will advance.

With Kane's status in limbo I am guessing they are wishing they had held on to Saad and Sharpe right about now!

I mean look at how long the investigation is taking, and I'm ok with that, but if/when charges happen, then there will take time to get to the trial. The biggest question is, if he gets charged and it goes to trial, does the NHL )or Hawks) suspend him until the situation is resolved or does he play?

Agreed! You also have to wonder if they can sign or trade for some extra support!

I think they lose in the first round without Kane.

Also think unless everything quickly dropped he will be suspended pending investigation and the team will try to distance themselves.

To be honest, I don't know if they make the playoffs this year without Kane. I really don't.

Desjardins and Shaw are fine contributors in a bottom 6 role, but they certainly don't make the Hawks a playoff team if they weren't one already. Kruger isn't resigned yet, and they went from having too many guys at LW to having seemingly no one. Saad and Sharp was about as good of a 1-2 punch as you could have in the league on the left side, and they're both gone now.

So you have Toews and Hossa on the top line with...who? Bickell? Fuck, that's as bad as 2010-11 when it was Kopecky - Toews - Hossa. Who's your 2nd line center? Teravainen? They want to transition him to center this year, but then who are his wings? This is still a 20 year old kid that looks like he weighs 160 pounds in full pads, he still needs guys to open up space for him. So Versteeg and Dano? Third line is Panarin - Anisimov - Shaw? With ????? - Kruger - Desi on the 4th line? I just don't see it.

TvR was really solid, but needs to prove he can stay healthy. As soon as he was healthy from his original knee injury last year, he hurt himself again that knocked him out for an extra 4-6 weeks. But still, defense is...what?

Keith - Seabrook
Hjalmarsson - Daley
TvR - ??????

Rundblad is either bad, or just slow developing. Either way, he can't be counted on back there. If he proves everyone wrong, great, but he's AT BEST a 6th defenseman right now. Sometimes he's more of an AHL guy.

I mean, that is a team that is fighting for a playoff spot, at best. Dallas will make the playoffs this year, LA will be better, Colorado would have likely been a playoff team last year if it weren't for the slow start...the West is so deep and so good, I just don't see how the Hawks are a playoff team without Kane.

I don't think people are remembering how big of a struggle it was without him last year. I mean, yeah, they won some games, but they were all a struggle. Over the course of 82 games, it would catch up with them. The PP without him was PATHETIC. Absolutely dreadful. They were winning ugly, and that was when they had Vermette, Saad, Sharp and Oduya. They don't have those guys anymore.

I just don't see it. The Hawks could follow in the Kings footsteps and be a defending SC Champ on the outside looking in come playoff time.

As good as Tavares is , I have a hard time putting him our Mt Rushmore any time soon. He could eventually get there but not yet. How does Bucci replaced Smitty, who backboned a team that won 4 straight Cups and 19 consecutive playoff series.

If there was any franchise who had a MT Rushmore set is stone for the foreseeable future, it is the Islanders with Bossy, Potvin, Trottier and Smith.

IF JT wins a cup, I could replace Smith. If we wind up making a cup final, win many playoff series and he gets to 1000 points or higher, I guess an argument could convince me otherwise. Until then, the 4 remains the same.

I think Bucci's Mt Rushmores are more projections than current. Could be wrong.

Ok, then maybe it makes a little more sense. I only clicked the link and scrolled to the Isles assuming it was the 4 it has been forever. I still think it will take a lot of work for JT to remove Smitty.

When I have time, I will read it all. I love stuff like that.

I might even bother reading the Blue Jackets.

Edmonton, Montreal, and you guys have your Mt. Rushmore cemented for good.
