  1. '17/18 hawks outlook

    He wouldn't. I don't see Duchene trade materializing, but it's a fun topic to discuss. I firmly believe AA will be traded but not until the summer of 19 when he's paid his signing bonus and his NTC/NMC has expired.
  2. '17/18 hawks outlook

    Agreed, it doesn't hurt to make a low-ball offer but I doubt Sakic bites. If somehow the deal was Duchene for AA and a 1st (plus maybe a mid-level prospect) then sure, go for it. But it's highly unlikely that would be enough.
  3. '17/18 hawks outlook

    Duchene to Chicago makes no sense. The Hawks don't have the assets to make that deal, even if they did I doubt they'd want to dilute their depth just for him. Stan may make a move, but it will likely be one nobody sees coming. Did Eklund post big rumours about the Saad/Panarin or Murphy/Hjalmarsson deals?
  4. You Be The Gm

    I think you could be right. It would be nice to see #40 make the team out of camp.
  5. You Be The Gm

    As far as rookies making the team I am hoping either Hayden or Fortin are the ones. I think that of all the guys that are close they could have the biggest impact.
  6. You Be The Gm

    Agreed about Schmaltz. Although it could take a prospect like Debrincat or Sikura to move Hossa's contract now.
  7. Jan Rutta

    Walsh is famous for promoting his clients over twitter, koodos to him for using social media to increase his clients' profile. However, this is the type of response I would expect from the team. For the upcoming season I am thinking Keith, Seabrook, Murphy and Kempny will make up the top 4, but after that it's wide open. Barring a trade of UFA signing I would guess that Forsling and Rutta have the inside track on the 3rd pairing.

    I would like to see the message boards available through the app in the "more" section. Some other teams offer this functionality.
  9. Motte

    I don't think the Hawks gave up on Motte, the Jackets wanted him specifically (from what I've read) and that was the cost to get Forsberg. I would have rather given up Hinostroza, but I think Forsberg will make more of an impact than either of those guys. The team needed a solid back-up goalie and none were in the pipeline.
  10. 2O17 prospect camp & schedule

    Fortin is the prospect I am most intrigued about. I'd also like to see Luke Johnson take a big step this season and maybe have a Cup of coffee with the Hawks this season.
  11. Hawk Moves (Real Time)

    I think Enstrom would be a very good addition. But I think he'd be more of a TDL target if the Jets are out of the playoff race. Potentially Winnipeg makes a deal earlier but I'm sure that would be more costly.
  12. Stan As Gm

    I may be in the minority here but I would pass on Duchene. The Hawks need help on defense more than help at forward. Trading a quality young dman (Forsling or Jokiharju) doesn't help with that. Plus, without trading Hossa it becomes very difficult to take on a contract for more than one year. It could end up costing more than originally anticipated.
  13. replacing hoss and nik.

    I know the obvious choice is to play Saad with Toews, but Saad also had some good chemistry with Kane. I wonder if we'll see 20 and 88 together at some point. If Sharp finds the fountain of youth (albeit unlikely) I wouldn't be surprised to see it.
  14. The 'hawks and free agency

    I envision the lines pretty much the same way except with Bouma and Kero swapping in and out as the 4LW. I would love to see Fortin emerge as the 3LW or 2LW (depending on where Sharp plays).
  15. The 'hawks and free agency

    Garrison would be a nice addition and I'd guess he'll be available as some point.
