Colliton can hang around...teams not there yet, let him fumble around until it's more complete.
I completely agree. Naysayers on this forum continue in spite of the success u noted above (and tonight's impressive 3rd period come-from-behind win) to defend their preseason predictions that this team with this coach and this GM were going nowhere this season. And that was before we found out about Dach and Toews. Kudos to those who acknowledge how well this season has panned out. Sure, we need a big forward or two who can muscle and score and another solid blue liner, but IMHO we've solved our goalie problem, Zadorov is the beast we've needed in our own end, and the youngsters will only get better.First.....Detroit is the second oldest team in the league. They are loaded with veterans. Chicago is a team that nobody and I mean NOBODY thought they would be where they are. So JC has a very young team that's rebuilding and playing over their head....yet, he's doing a bad job? And you got a coach in Detroit with a team of veterans that finally decide to start playing with 75% of the season burned off.....and he's doing a good job?
This team is NOT a contender. You do realize the Hawks sent this letter out, don't you? They are as surprised as we are....while I don't think JC is a HOF coach by any stretch, the veterans here have bought into him and the young players play for him. There's something to be said for that.
