    Hawks Moves 2019-2020

    Shaw can play wing on any of the top three lines. 65/19/88 could work as could 12/17/65, but the option I like the best would be a third line of 20/77/65. I think Dach makes the roster and stays all season, maybe he plus wing but I think it’s more likely that he centres the third line with a couple veteran wingers. If de Haan isn’t ready I expect Boqvist to get a shot unless he has a terrible camp. The 9 game marker doesn’t apply to Boqvist since he’ll be playing in Rockford instead of London should he be sent down.

    [TRADE] Hawks Get de Haan

    Great move by Stan, he added a quality 2nd pairing defenseman without losing anything from the main roster. The defense and PK should be far better than last year. I expect more moves, my guess is that Gus is traded.

    Bit of a risky move but there;s potential. I'm not against trading Gustafsson but I don't see it happening. The Hawks will need him on the roster for at least one more season. Keith - Jokiharju Byram - Gustafsson Murphy - Seabrook Forsling or Koekkoek

    Byram is still the best option.

    2019 NHL Draft: Blackhawks edition

    Fair enough. Strong arguments can be made for Turcotte and Cozens and either will likely be very good. Byram is still my top choice. He’ll likely be a #1 d-man and that’s a better option to draft than a 2C.
  6. DarthKane

    2019 NHL Draft: Blackhawks edition

    My top three would be: 1. Bryam 2. Turcotte 3. Cozens Assuming Kakko doesn’t fall to #3.

    2019 NHL Draft: Blackhawks edition

    Probably not too much, the scouts and Stan will have most of the input.
  8. DarthKane

    2019 NHL Draft: Blackhawks edition

    My guess is that Kakko goes #1. Hughes will likely go second but if he doesn’t that will be absolutely huge for the Hawks.
  9. DarthKane

    2019 NHL Draft: Blackhawks edition

    He’s my top choice for sure, no doubts at all.
  10. DarthKane

    2019 NHL Draft: Blackhawks edition

    Fair enough, but I would be surprised to see Stan take Turcotte or Dach. As I’ve said before, I think it comes down to Byram (my choice) or Cozens.

    2019 NHL Draft: Blackhawks edition

    Agreed that it likely comes down to Byram and Cozens and I’d be happy with either. It all comes down to which player the Hawks feel is best and maybe a bit of position planning (although I don’t agree with doing that).
  12. DarthKane

    2019 NHL Draft: Blackhawks edition

    Assuming Hughes and Kakko go first and second (in whichever order) my top choices would be (in order): Byram Cozens Dach Turcotte

    I got with Byram. I saw the kid play in the WHL Final, he was the best defenseman and best player on the ice for both teams.

    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.
