    It will be fun to watch them this year, lot of talent, at least Rockford should be loaded! Is Mitchell going to play?

    I didn't want to mention it because I have too much respect for Q, but following logic of some posters, does it mean that any decent coach could win with that roster? I don’t think so, but there is no way to prove it.

    It makes sense too, but I guess thought was we don't need any more money locked up with Cat and Strome due to be paid sometime this year. So like I said we will see the whole picture after this season, if it was good move or not.

    That's the beauty of 1 year contract I guess. We shouldn't worry about it right now. It all depends on how our prospects will develop, Delia and Lankinen especially, on Craws health, etc. If he wants big money he can leave and we are back to square one. No harm to have him for at least one year, but a lot of benefits. We all saw what happened when Crawford went down and we tried to replace him with Forsberg and others.

    Let's not forget they could win in 2014 too but I guess that's irrelevant

    If I could you give you multiple likes I would do it. It's so nice for a change to read posts where no one called trash or liar, or wanted Hawks to fail because Lehner is a Trump supporter, or threatening to support another team if Hawks fail. Too many trolls.

    That's why I can't really blame Stan for throwing NTC to his contract because no way he was letting him go after that performance, but I can blame medical staff n for misdiagnosis.

    Sometimes there is more to GM job than it is visible to regular fans. At the time when Bickell was signed he had better offers so I can see why he was overpaid. What Stan was supposed to do, let him go after that performance in playoffs? Did it hurt Hawks? I don’t know. We lost Teravainen who everyone on those boards considered soft small European. He is like Schmaltz, no one cried when he left. All of sudden he is someone we should keep. Back to Bickell medical issue, saying that doctors didn't fail is 'absurd', they tried to diagnose him long before his trade and came with vertigo.

    First of all he never had full NMC, he had limited NTC, though I'm not aware of its condition. Second, it's not absurd to expect medical staff to do their job and identify the problem so he could be LTIRed. Third, absurd is thinking that the only reason why he wasn't traded is his NTC, not the way he was playing at the time which has nothing to do with him as a player. I don't think there was a lot of teams wanted to trade for him if any. Fourth, again big rugged Canadian who tears in playoff should let to leave to another team? I'm pretty sure there he would get higher contract from someone else. That would be an absurd.

    I would also want to see what Entwistle is capable of. I think he got forgotten with all new players, but he could be a good player for Rock this year.

    I think it's time for Mods to stop some posters from calling other people posts lies and calling them trash otherwise those boards become a joke. Just my opinion.

    I agree, both Q and Stan were lucky to inherit stacked team, both of them were able to maintain high level for long time and win 3 Cups could be 4. Now it's time for Stan to prove he can build his own team, the only thing is Q shouldn't be fired until that happens.
