    Brian Bickell in my opinion is a real under rated player. He is only going to get better. Stalberg is a great skater, but I believe he has to play alot rough and tougher. He is an awesome skater. He should be putting up more points. The Hawks have to take less penalties. Especially silly retaliation ones. Toews,Kane,Hossa, SeabrookKeith and Bolland are solid. The Hawks have great depth and should win The Stanley Cup this year. Graeat coaching!
