After what can only be described as the most boring offseason in history (despite the creation of our brand new team), the NHL is finally almost ready to spring it’s patented brand of fun mixed with chronic stupidity on its unsuspecting fanbase (the NHL sounds a lot like Hockeenight now that I think about it).

Well, there’s an early Christmas present. While there still plenty of argument over exactly how good the Hawks are, I think we can safely say they are not bad. Chicago is growing fat on the steady diet of junk food teams the league has fed them this month, and tonight was no different. A lousy Montreal team came into the United Center, and despite falling behind 1-0 on a power play goal, the Hawks flexed their muscle (and talent) and beat the Habs fairly easily.
The Chicago Blackhawks returned to an NHL ice surface tonight after the abysmal surface in Nashville last night, playing a Halloween Eve match in front of over 20,000 in the United Center. Some people were dressed absurdly, and others wore Halloween costumes.
Before we get started, they say a picture is worth a thousand words. I think Jonathan Toews and Adam Burish were worth 2000, at the very least.
Cristobal Huet was in net once again for the Hawks, marking his fourth start in a row, while Carey Price was in pipes for Montreal.
Once again, QStache dressed 7 defensemen, figuring he could get by with 11 forwards. Good planning, right?
