VANCOUVER - The Chicago Blackhawks are still looking for consistency a quarter of the way into their season.The Blackhawks left Vancouver with a 4-1 loss on Sunday night as players and coaches said the team needs to find its rhythm moving forward. Chicago is 6-4 in its last 10 games and has won four out of its last five, with 11 goals scored and four allowed against the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers.We feel we can get to another level and we have shown it in spurts, said forward Patrick Kane, who was held pointless by the Canucks. (We) just got to have that consistency to be a little bit better.Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville was quick to point out that a handful of wins glossed over fundamental issues in what was actually a lacklustre start to Chicagos season.We mightve won some games early on but we didnt play very well, he said following the loss to the Canucks, adding that he believes the Blackhawks have only recently begun to find their feet and settle. Tonight we didnt have much puck support or pace to our game.Chicagos season has been mired in little setbacks with the team not winning more than two games in a row until Saturday when the Blackhawks earned their third straight victory with a 7-1 rout of the Edmonton Oilers. Chicago has also dropped key games against Central Division rivals St. Louis, Nashville and Winnipeg.One issue has been scoring, although Kane came into Sundays game in Vancouver on a four-game goal streak. He also leads the team in points this month, edging out Jonathan Toews by an assist.Kris Versteeg scored the teams only goal on Sunday, capitalizing on the power play midway through the second period after the Canucks Derek Dorsett was sent to the box for slashing. The Blackhawks power-play unit, which is ranked 14th in the league, went to work.Brent Seabrooks pass found Duncan Keith standing at the point. His shot was tipped in front by Versteeg past Canucks goalie Ryan Miller for his fourth goal in seven games. After registering 11 shots in the first period, the Blackhawks faded, getting only six and eight on net the following periods.It was high paced. We just didnt take control of the game. I think we let them move the puck side to side across the ice and get their rush game going a little too easy, said Toews, who finished minus-four and was one of six Chicago players to not get any shots on goal. Pucks were just going through us everywhere. We werent checking well. We made their puck possession game really easy.The Canucks kept Corey Crawford on his toes throughout the game peppering him with 29 shots. The Blackhawks high-scoring offence showed flashes of brilliance with two short-handed opportunities in the first period stretching the Canucks defence.But as the game wore on, Chicago eased up on Vancouver.It was one of these games that you got to find a way to get something in the third period going, said Quenneville.The Blackhawks are next in action on Nov. 26 against Central Division rivals the Colorado Avalanche, who have lost six of their last 10.

General manager Mickey Loomis also says the club does not intend to re-sign free-agent linebacker Jonathan Vilma, who has been hampered by recurring knee injuries the past few seasons. "These were not easy decisions to make," Loomis said in written comments released by the club. "Since we acquired them, Jabari, Roman, Will and Jonathan have all been excellent players on the field for us. Each of them were integral parts in turning this program around and winning a Super Bowl. They were a great example to our players as team leaders in the locker room as well. "However, a new NFL year is about to begin and, with the start of free agency in March, these difficult moves allow us to position our team under the salary cap to move forward for 2014," Loomis added. The Saints have said they intend to retain free-agent Pro Bowl tight end Jimmy Graham, either through a franchise tag or long-term extension, and both options will require financial flexibility. Wednesdays moves will save nearly $17 million in 2014. Saints coach Sean Payton said Smith, Harper, Vilma and Greer were "right there at the top" of all the great players he has coached or been around in his coaching career. "These are disciplined, smart, tough and team-oriented individuals," Payton said. "They all played an important role in helping this team and this city win its first Super Bowl and they have all enjoyed multiple playoff appearances and wins." Smith is a former first-round pick of the Saints in 2004 and had a team-leading 13 sacks during New Orleans Super Bowl season. However, he was widely expected to be released after this season, which he missed after tearing knee ligaments late in the preseason. He was scheduled to be paid $10.4 million in base salary allone this season.dddddddddddd He has played in 139 games for the Saints, accumulating 67 1/2 career sacks. Harper was New Orleanss second round draft choice in 2006 and has since started 104 games. He went to Pro Bowls after the 2009 and 2010 season and his 17 career sacks are the most ever by a Saints defensive back. His base salary for 2014 was set at $2.35 million. As the moves became public, Harper posted a note on the social media website Twitter, thanking New Orleans fans for "the 8 years of .GreatMemories .WHODAT .SBXLIVCHAMPS." Greer, scheduled to earn $4 million in base salary next season, joined New Orleans as a free agent in 2009, immediately sliding into a starting role he held until a serious knee injury against San Francisco in mid-November, which ended his season. He intercepted nine passes in his five seasons in New Orleans, returning two for TDs. Vilma was acquired in a trade with the New York Jets in 2008. He led New Orleans in tackles during his first three season with the club and selected to Pro Bowls in 2009 and 2010. In 70 games with New Orleans, he was credited with 530 tackles, eight sacks, six interceptions, five forced fumbles and seven fumble recoveries. Last season, however, Vilma began the season on the physically unable to perform list because of his recurring knee problems. He returned for only one game before sitting out the rest of the season, and on Wednesday he seemed to be comfortable with the Saints decision not to engage him in further contract talks. On Twitter, he wrote: "Couple pro bowls and a superbowl ring later, I couldnt have written that chapter any better. .WhoDat" Like Smith, he was a defensive captain, but also like Smith, was implicated by the NFL as a ring-leader in a cash-for-hits bounty program that the league said the Saints ran from 2009-2011. Both players have always denied they ran a bounty pool as described by the NFL and successfully overturned suspensions. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, meanwhile, has maintained the leagues findings were accurate.
