    special teams disaster today....

    Boqvist

    With an assist in the 1st period so far today, Boqvist now has a 3gm point streak, 1a Friday, 3a Saturday. So 5 assists in 7 periods, hopefully he scores his 1st today.

    Chicago Bears 2018/2019 season

    some mind boggling decisions this far again from our rookie coach. why not at least try a fg on that last play if you aren't gonna throw it to the endzone? last week the Pat's gave up 40 to the team Nagy was a coach for last year. similar offense. killed them throwing to Hill and Hunt out of the backfield. instead we continue to slam Howard into the line.... put Cohen out there and sling it around, the Pat's pass defense is not good. of course, it doesn't help that 10 is all kinds of inconsistent again in the first half....

    There is no better time than tonight to start that.

    The Crawford Thread

    absolutely awesome to see Crow out there playing at the same level he left off at. actually, it is awesome just to see him on the ice playing at all!

    Yeah his speed is an issue, he's a great skater but he needs another gear to be an NHL regular, I do think he'll be one of the 1st call ups on D if needed. Raddysh is really making the PP click in Rockford and I wouldn't compare him to Franson, maybe on offense but he's smart defensively. I agree Ruuta is the guy to move, hopefully package Forsberg in there. Tuulola, Raddysh, and Carlsson seem like the top 3 down there, with Forsling and Murphy almost back Stan should look for a minor trade now and make some room on D. That would be great to have the Raddysh brothers then add Strome to get the Erie line back.

    Nash seems to be in no hurry to sign and it seems therei is a pretty decent chance he just walks away from the game due to his health. But if he is interested and has stayed in game shape, what’s the cost? He’s made $90+ million over his career and unless he’s got Joe Murphy money management skills he doesn’t need the cash, so what does a potential 20 goal and 40 point guy cost in this day and age?

    Can’t say I’ve seen him much. Everything I’ve read about him says he’s a smart, hard working player with just average skating. He obviously can run a PP and his defense is probably better than he gets credit for. I think I read a comparable would be Cody Franson. Funny with those gaudy numbers no one ever threw a late round pick at him. Maybe Big T can say more, he watches a lot more OHL than most of us. As for needs, since Arizona is really babying Strome who is cantering the fourth line there, maybe he might be available for the right package. Again skating might be the issue, but a smart player with good f/o skills and if you put him between Kane and Whoever on the left side, there might be something there. As for left wing, someone mentioned Lucic, overpaid and labouring on the third line in Edmonton. But he does offer something we’re missing. edit. I found an analysis about as deep as you’ll ever see about Raddysh from a Canucks blogger. https://canucksarmy.com/2017/04/03/a-closer-look-at-chl-free-agent-darren-raddysh/

    Debrincat

    Alex reminds me a lot of Brett Hull in the offensive zone, he can be a nonfactor for a while but he'll find an open area and just like that he has a goal or two. Unlike Brett, he has great wheels and plays a strong 2way game.

    Ha. What are your thoughts on Raddysh? I’d rather Saad be the main piece but I don’t see that happening. IMO, a 2C is needed and then it allows AA to stay at 3C where he has shown to do well. I also wouldn’t mind seeing AA on the LW for a game or two. Holes need to be filled. Is a top 6 LW or a 2C the bigger need right now? I don’t think both can be had...and a top 4 d-man as well...although I hope Forsling and Murphy help make that group stronger.

    To me, Tom, both Hayden and Kunitz do not belong on the Top Two lines. Rick Nash? Likely. Of course, $$$ does enter the picture significantly.

    2018/19 IceHogs

    If you want to keep Raddysh then let’s go get Taylor Raddysh from the Tampa organization and Dylan Strome from Arizona. Team them up with Dcat and Darren Raddysh and you have the high scoring Erie Otters PP.! But depending on Toronto’s needs is there a trade for Nylander in there somewhere? Rather see Saad go, maybe Babcock remembers the playoff Saad from the ‘13 Cup run.

    Craw saved their bacon and fried it up in the pan. Definitely a goalie win .

    The Crawford Thread

    Absolutely, that game could a been easily 5 or 6-1 for CBJs. They outplayed the Hawks for the better part of 2.5 periods. My main concern is that like last year, Crawford is just covering up pretty much all the teams weaknesses, which is ok while he’s healthy and ready to go. But if he decides it’s a career, or gets injured again, I’m not sure this team can pull through. However, it’s been an absolute pleasure of seeing him again. He looks like one of those goalies( if healthy) that can play good hockey till their late 30s, like a Craig Anderson, or Grant Fuhr, Belfour, Hasek, Cujo etc!!!

    10/21 Hawks vs Bolts

    I gotta say that despite being outplayed most of the time this season, the Hawks with their skilled players have managed to pull out the goals when needed to amass a good winning record. Debrincat illustrates that perfectly. He is nowhere to be seen for most of the game, but then, all of a sudden, he is alone in the slot with the puck and he rifles it in. Great skill! Last night was the prime example of both Debrincat and the team being outplayed. The Yote game was an example of being thoroughly outplayed where the skilled players did not come to the rescue. What I will be looking for tonight is a game where they play hard and take it to the Bolts at both ends of the ice. Maybe they are not capable of that and will have to rely on quick strikes from their stars while holding the other team off enough to make those strikes stand up for a win. But, I would rather see them control the puck and dominate the effort in a game for a change; and, then, on a regular basis.

    I agree there is clearly going to be an even bigger log jam of defensemen at the Rock and with the big club in the next several weeks. Something will have to give. I hope Raddysh isn’t moved. I think there is some upside there in a couple of years. Does Schmaltz and one of Forsling/Gus/Murphy assuming he returns to 100% soon and another prospect get into the Nylander discussion?

    10/21 Hawks vs Bolts

    Tnx Madrose, lazy play like last night, probably won't cut it tonight, unless Crow really steals another one ?, Hopefully the flash's of good hockey, are present , and closer together, like to see a 60 minute,all out game, a pp with a cause, "GO HAWKS" !!!
  21. OldTimeHawky

    10/20 Hawks vs Jackets

    Same thing last season, Anisimov starts the season on the 3rd line and he's over 50%, moved to the 2nd and it quickly dropped. Him and Schmaltz aren't 2C's.

    I would keep Murphy for the time being because his present trade value would be low coming off a serious injury. The minute he returns, however, there will be a surplus on the right side. Seabrook and the Joker are not going anywhere. Boqvist is on his way. The one to shop first is Rutta. He is a UFA after this year and clearly will not be returning given the numbers situation. I would look to trade him right now for a bottom six forward (and would add Forsberg to the package if a trade partner is interested). There will not be a spot for Rutta in the lineup much longer. You don't want a trade chip sitting in the stands. The player should have trade value given the shortage of right-shot defencemen around the league. His contract is reasonable and short term. The other defenceman who might be vulnerable is Gustafsson. Forsling will need a spot soon in the top four on the left side, and he projects as the same time of puck moving type defenceman. Manning is not going anywhere given his role (the only physical type the team has on the back end). Davidson's contract makes him ideal as a number seven guy. I believe the team needs to thin out the Rockford defence as well. You want Gilbert and Hillman playing every day. At least one of Snuggerud, Raddysh or Campbell should be shopped.

    Do they try to move Murphy? Former first rounder, still young and doesn’t fit into Quenneville’s style of game. He’d bring the best return of all the superfluous defenseman. To save face they’ll have to use this years mistake, Manning, so he stays. Now does Jokiharju go back to junior. To me he’s made the team and good right handers are rarer on this team. Forsling will rehab and then what, if he gets the call, there are a lot of lefties to play. Davidson will be sent down to further confuse the pipeline in Rockford. I’m wondering how most would fill out our defense pairings to be the best and most balanced without worry to feelings or contracts.
