    Gotta admit, if the same roster was still there as when he took over, good chance he wouldn’t be in double digits in the win column. It’s amazing what getting rid of Manning, Davidson, Schmaltz and a few others did. I’m happy for him that he now has something to work with, but moving forward, a lot of work is needed on this roster, cuz let’s be honest, if Kane and Toews don’t have these types of years, it gets automatically tougher for him. So I hope the roster is properly bolstered this off-season, or we could be back at the bottom in a hurry. Remember, the central is very weak this year, and we’re at the bottom, it’s only gonna get tougher, so should the Hawks!!!

    It looks like Haglin is heading to the Caps. There’s a lot more interest than you would believe in the players you mention. Teams want to get max value for their assets, you know this. I think around here we look st things from the Hawks point of view a wee bit too much, Toffoli will not be given away, I promise that!!!

    Hawks Moves 2018-2019

    I would personally avoid all right now and look to the off season. Even if the Hawks gets in, look at the goals bottom feeders are getting against us, the playoffs would be a repeat of 2017. I wouldn’t even give up assets for any UFA right now. The summer is where it’s at, I would have to think if the Hawks are looking, they’d want the player to agree to a contract, all of Ottawa’s guys they’re looking to trade, they’ll want first rounders for. Rumour has it Tampa wants Ceci and will give up a first for him. Obviously Duchene and Stone will both garner a first. Ottawa has said they’d like to obtain their original first rounder, and if they have 4 first round picks, 3 may get it back. So I’d think most guys are out of our price range, but I think what the Hawks are doing is setting themselves up for the summer. If they get permission to talk to a player about a contract right now, that shows they’re interested and they will know what the player is looking for come UFA!!!

    He’s got some grit, not like a Bickell or Shaw, but he’s on the tougher side, basically not a pushover and he’s a been getting better every year, he’s had 14 goals 23 goals and now 22, he’s gonna be close to 30 goals this year when it’s said and done. He’s 26, 6’ 190, from Chicago. He made 1.8 million last year. He is a UFA, but he may be more of a July 1 UFA signing. But he’s be an upgrade with his 44 points right now. I’ve also heard that the Sens are looking to move Cody Ceci, maybe more moving parts in this? We’ll find out soon enough!!!

    I just heard that the Hawks are having discussions on Ryan Dzingel, and he just turned down a contract offer from the Sens. Boston was linked earlier to him but they just got Coyle. Gonna be an interesting few days here!!!

    I’ve been digging, but not getting much info yet. I’d really hope that Gustafson is moved out to give Joker a shot on the pp, Gus is very good offensively, and I agree that you gotta be careful what you wish for, but he is atrocious in his own end. Maybe another team can use him as a 5/6 dman and give him pp minutes. I still believe he can fetch a lot, even though the faithful here don’t believe so!!!

    I believe one of them will land in the Peg, I think Chevy should just sit back and let his team be. I don’t think they need much help, and Maurice has done a good job this year resting big Buff, and a couple others. I think that team is good the way it is, adding may not be the right move, Stone needs the puck, I’m not sure he or Duchene would be good deadline additions!!!

    Also still hearing Puljujarvi to Carolina. I’d still love to see him here, even if he ends up being a 3rd liner, that’s ok, he’s 6’4” and can move. Smartest move would be for Winterpeg to get him back with Laine, they were like Strome and Dcat!!!

    It’s by no means a done deal, but I’m heavily hearing the Islanders, 3 pieces headed to Ottawa, 1st, roster player and prospect. But this is still in the rumour stage, I’m sure others will be bidding on Duchene as well, no need to sell right now, but keep a keen eye on Sweet Lou and the Islanders!!!

    I don’t believe the Joker will be that guy. Boqvist is basically a high scoring winger on the pp point. He will be that guy. Now the bigger problem is, Beaudin is another clone of the offensive defenseman, I believe at some point we will see one or two of these guys traded. With Gustafson, Boqvist, Beaudin, and Joker, they may score 4 a game, but they’ll allow 10 a game. 2 of those four will have to be moved, I don’t believe they will be successful on the same roster!!!

    I would love to have him, but trading for him seems redundant, losing assets for a guy that we can get for nothing on July 1 would be detrimental!!!

    I disagree, can’t pressbox all but 5-6 players. He’s sat Kunitz and that’s hard to do to a vet on his last tour of duty. Plus, you can’t be difficult to work with just to be difficult. I’m sure JC has told Stan what he needs, and I guarantee another bigger center was one of them, enter Strome. And I find it weird that ever since Barry Smith left, the team went on a tear. I’d bet dollars to dimes that JC talked with Toews and Toews let him know that the spy in the room was crushing the teams spirit, and I believe JC said something to Stan about that!!!

    2/18 Hawks vs Sens

    Heard a spicy Ottawa Rumour, they’re gonna trade Duchene and Stone, and with the first round picks they acquire, they’re gonna try and parlay that into their original 1st rounder from Colorado, they also have SJs first rounder. So they may end up with 3 first rounders and trade them all for their fist back. If I am both teams, I do this, Colorado won’t be able to afford another 1st overall, and the 3 picks will will definitely help retool what they need, or even trade them for what you need!!!

    Manning is on waivers, I’m sure we could even get them to eat salary!!!
