Can You Believe the Chicago Blackhawks Are Still Undefeated?

Sixteen games into this year's NHL season, and the Chicago Blackhawks have yet to lose one. They've gone into overtime or shootouts three times (most recently Tuesday night against the Canucks, which was a burly game!), but they've always pulled out a victory. And their Tuesday win meant they tied the Anaheim Ducks' NHL record of "16 straight games to begin a season without a regulation loss."

Crazy! But I can't wait to see them lose. They play the Sharks tomorrow night, and I really hope they lose. (Which might be unlikely because the Sharks, while they started out strong, haven't been doing well. But! On Tuesday they finally broke their losing streak, so maybe things are looking up?)

I mean, I'm torn. I like to see hockey history happen, but I really dislike Patrick Kane. I really, really do. Fuck you, Patrick Kane, you talented but pompous little worm.

How are you hockey fans feeling about the situation? Let's have a poll!

I don't hate Patrick Kane. But I could learn! Tell me more...
I *heart* hate! Just for fun though.

Kane was the guy who got into a fight with a cabbie over something like $2. That's reason enough to hate him. But it isn't reason enough not to like the Blackhawks. They have to be a divisional rival as well, which in Megan's case they are, but in my case they're not.

Where's the button for "What is this 'hockey' of which you speak?"

I, too, want to see them lose because I, too, hate the Blackhawks. Go nucks!

Since the Sharks are my favorite team, and since they are next up against Chicago, I doubly hope to see the Blackhawks lose in regulation tomorrow night. But damn, I don't see it happening. I would really like to stick a Chelsea Daggar into Kane's Black Heart.

Even though I left Chicago nearly 4 years ago, I just can't bring myself to quit the Hawks. Go Hawks!

where is the option of wanting the Hawks to win but hating Patrick Kane?

Pfft. They have totally lost. You just get points in the NHL for losing. (what, no, not still bitter about the season opener at all, why do you ask?)
