10:24 AM ET 03.25 | The criticism wasn't new to Patrick Kane. Of all the Blackhawks, the offensively gifted forward often gets criticized for his defense and his play without the puck. But it's unusual that Kane was hearing it from an opposing coach. Nashville's Barry Trotz said he was happy that Hawks forwards -- specifically Kane -- were "cheating" to manufacture offense and not committing to defense in their last matchup. "I was kind of taken aback by it, kind of shocked that he would say something like that because of the history of our team and how successful we've been in the past and how successful [Joel Quenneville has] been," Kane told the Sun-Times on Saturday. "It's almost like he's saying 'I don't want to say telling Joel how to coach' but telling us how to play."

Lots of offensively minded forwards often cheat on the defensive end looking for that first step on the defenseman...Dr. Zaius has spoken.

Maybe Little Stanley could trade for Kessel so Patty has somebody to play cards with at the red line.

Be careful Trotz. Those are the kind of words that get someone on your team lined up.

Fast transistion is the name of the game. Thier style seems to suit them just fine (see 2011
