07:18 AM ET 05.15 | Where have you gone, Viktor Stalberg? It might be that the mystery of [Stalberg] and his apparent drop off the top four lines extends to corners of the Blackhawks' dressing room. But neither Stalberg nor coach Joel Quenneville was in a mystery-solving mood Tuesday. "Well, I don't really have anything to say about it," Stalberg said after a third straight practice in a white jersey, usually reserved for scratches-to-be. "Ask 'Q.'" On cue, Quenneville was asked what the speedy third-line stalwart needed to do to regain a lineup spot for Game 1 against the Red Wings on Wednesday. The Hawks coach wasn't exactly forthcoming, though he indicated his players "know where they stand."

Are they implying Q's an A.

This might be an issue that goes beyond his level of play.

Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun Times = the most illiterate hockey writers in North America.

Who has the edge going into this series - the Hawks with a long layoff or the Wings coming off a game 7 win?

Q is sending a message. I just hope the Speedy Swede understands.
Not sure if he speaks Canadian, eh.

There is more to hockey than skating really fast, time for Viktor to step it up.

I think there may be a couple of Maple Leafs that can vouch for that.

I would agree with this. It certainly gives me the edge, in terms of not having to watch late night hockey.

Obviously it didn't make that big of a impact last series, but I feel the first game is key tonight. I think if the Wings have a chance to pull this series out they've got to win the first one. The Hawks have speed and depth, so keeping in front of them and putting the pressure on Chicago will be key for the series.

LOL - Let's just say if 43 knew him he'd say, "You're doing a helluva job Brooksie".
