Next up on my list is Chicago's 7-1 pounding of Phoenix. I'm not surprised that the Hawks won but 7-1 !!?? That's an embarrassment for any team. The most impressive thing about this game was Andrew Ladd's stat line when it was all over. He ended with 1 Goal, 3 Assists, and a plus 4 plus/minus. Now that's a big game. I was also happy to see one of my favorite players, Martin Havlat, get back in the offensive zone recording 2 Assists. I always told my friends that if Marty would have a healthy season he would be in the top five in points, but I guess I was sadly mistaken, at least so far. I'll leave that topic for another time however.
Last but not least, well actually maybe least, I want to comment on the Minnesota Timberwolves. I live in Minnesota and up until this season I considered myself a Wolves fan, but that ended when we decided to trade O.J Mayo away for Kevin Love. That was the last straw for me, and now I will not support or even watch the Wolves until they fire Kevin McHale. The guy has made some of the worst decisions I have ever seen someone make when it comes to GM's. He has now twice traded the player we drafted before that player even plays one game with the team, and oh yeah he dealt Kevin Garnett for garbage when I guarantee he could have got some major players for KG. The guy is bad for the team and once again they are at the bottom of the league, and now I hear they might make him the head coach again. This is becoming a joke to me and I have had enough. The next time a T-Wolves game is shown instead of a Wild game I'm calling my local cable provider to complain, and I'm not even a Wild fan.
