<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>BrandonDubinskyGOAT</b></div><div>Since you are so confident this generation’s greatest Hawks team would absolutely destroy the Penguins’ dynasty, let us compare the lineups. Below I will put the EA Sports ratings of each player at their peak:

Hawks:
Sharp (88) - Toews (93) - Hossa (92)
Saad (86) - Richards (88) - Kane (95)
Shaw (85) - Handzus (84) - Versteeg (85)
Bickell (84) - Kruger (83) - Bolland (84)

Keith (94) - Seabrook (89)
Campbell (89) - Byfuglien (88)
Hjalmarsson (86) - Oduya (85)

Crawford (88)
Emery (83)

Penguins:
Guentzel (87) - Crosby (97) - Sheary (82)
Rust (83) - Malkin (95) - Hornqvist (86)
Hagelin (85) - Bonino (85) - Kessel (90)
Kunitz (87) - Cullen (84) - Kunhackl (81)

Dumoulin (88) - Letang (90)
Maatta (85) - Daley (86)
Cole (84) - Schultz (87)

Murray (88)
Fleury (91)

Obviously the Hawks team on paper looks more stacked. But the Penguins during their cup run averaged 38 shots on goal per game and gave up an average of 22. Majority of the game they were moving the puck in the offensive zone, only 2 times they got outplayed. The Hawks were not as dominant in generating scoring chances during their playoff.</div></div>


Lol 2010 Hawks averaged 25 Shots against (best in the league) and 35 shots for (also best in the league) literally the best shot differential in the league

2016 Pens only had a plus 4 shot differential...

Hawks constantly controlled play in the playoffs wtf are you talking about. The west during that period was a lot more stingy defensively with Teams like LA, Detroit, Nashville being stiffling defensive systems.

Also LOL @ using EA ratings as scientific evidence no one would take Fleury over Crawford. MAF has been the worst goalie in the playoffs for what was the majority of his career.
