I'm a huge Kevin Weekes believer joe
You've probably seen his reaction when asked about Crawford last week
As you say, something going on there.
Seems to be the long drawn out concussion issues so many have faced, but you never know how much we are told.
I did find it interesting that Weekes said exactly what I've been saying, and have been scoffed at, for years .... "the Hawks go, as Crawford goes"
Even in their best days, even if you did get chances against them, he was always there to stabilize their ship.
He's always provided goaltending that we have never seen here. Not flashy, not loud, not some stupid DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOBY stuff, just great backstopping for a great team.
I agree with all of what you said. I didn't give him enough credit during the Cup runs because the defense was solid. But, looking back, this team has taken three huge hits with the loss of Crow, Hjalmmerson, and Hoss. Those guys covered up a lot of deficits.
