    On paper it looks good but Hayden still has to prove his salt.

    Well you know how I like to look at big pictures? Last year was his sophmore year in which they say most players stumble .........well he improved( bright spot !!! ) and that is how I like to look at things. Trend is that he improves every year and not goes backwards. Now the dark spot. Contract year and most after signing those fall off the face of the earth. So I'm in agreement with you and by pointing out the bright spot and dark spot still leaves us in a grey area.

    That's the 14 bottles of Jack question. Stan I'm down to 7 bottles so get a move on already will ya !!!!!! But I agree with you. Should be a keeper that get's better with each game and season.

    Fill in the blank as you like. I'm just saying that Rocky needs to stick to his threats with these 2 head strong children who have gotten the team to this point of failure. If Q is gone mid season then Stan should follow at years end. If Q is gone then the team sucks and it's gonna be harder to make the PO's. Can Dineen or Granato do that? So If Q is gone and the team sucks just fill in the blank who takes over but I'm guessing it will just be another high draft pick at seasons end. Then at seasons end get a new GM who can then hire his own coach and choose his draft pick. As I said I hope to see both Q and Stan for a very long time and hope they got their heads on straight to right their wrongs. To me it's getting harder to blame the players for their play and attitude when their bosses have been doing things wrong to prove they were right. I think they have some great kids waiting in the wings to get this team back on track but it's gonna take these 2 numbskulls to get along. And if I'm over "Jacked" about anything it's about these kids who I think can pump new life into this core
  6. 2018 development camp roster

    I'll give you some insight after the scrimmage on Friday. Not going to see or be impressed by anything just going through drills. It's playing a game. We have more D-men this year that are suppose to be better than what was there last year The Joker being new looked OK at best on a new smaller ice surface, Lucas Carlsson and Ian Mitchell were the standouts. D-cat wasn't impressive at all but Big-T pointed out he was playing a lot of hockey before arriving so fatigue may have been setting in. After watching him last year I believe Big-T was right about that. Another kid that impressed me was Mathias From. He was playing like he wanted to make the team. Kid was throwing his body all over the place,winning board battles and getting to the net. But it's just prospects who are still green and not playing against NHL players yet you can see who is giving it their all and what they can become.
  7. 2017/18 playoff predictions

    I never watch these things but it was kinda funny last night as I was flipping through channels and just happened to stop on this as they showed Ovi on a screen and stopped to see what it was about. It was for this category so I waited to see who they selected. They chose him then said he could not accept the award because he was back in Russia with his wife who is 8 1/2 months pregnant. If it's a boy is he going to name him Stanley?

    You are going to pay that for a 2LC anyway. The fear we have is that is he a true 2LC or is it because he is with Kane that he looks better than what he is? Give these 2 waterbugs a power forward that can win board battles and get to the net and I think that solves that line.
  9. You Be The Gm 2018/2019

    Experience is the key and 20 games just doesn't give that to him because he is still a deer in the headlights at this point. They need to either let him adjust to the NHL rigors or waste him in the AHL. To me 23 is the make or break point for forwards and whether they can make the NHL.

    I'm gonna be at the scrimmage game Friday morning. Had a blast at last years and think this one is going to be even better.
  11. You Be The Gm 2018/2019

    You have to ask. Do you see upside in him in the AHL? If he is at his ceiling there then the only way to know is by him being in the NHL where the ceiling is higher. 20 NHL games is not going to tell us anything because the ceiling in the AHL is just the floor of the NHL. There are a lot of AHL players who are at the ceiling there and have been for years those are your forever AHLers because they couldn't get off the NHL floor when given their shots.

    Go on E-bay in the antique section and see if you can find a telephone book for sale. Then duck tape some wood blocks to the gas and brake pedals. Sully now can drive and you can enjoy the ride home

    I'm for either keeping both and getting it right on this rebuild or both being gone. If Q is gone by December then the team is not playing well and that falls on both and Stan should follow at seasons end thus not hiring any new coach just put a fill in there. Savard can do that. Get a new GM and let him hire his coach and start a new. I'm rooting they buried their differences and we will see both for years to come. I can wait the year or two for some of these prospects to learn and improve which is going to help with the cap and money instead of trading them for older pieces. I think Toews and Kane will do better with youth than older vets that are going to cost money and these kids going elsewhere. The core is not the same as it has dwindled down to 5 or 6 players. Adding another 1 or 2 will make it better but then it's up to the kids to fill it out and get the cap in a good place to keep filling spots as needed.
  14. The Crawford Thread

    CC is the one thing that worries me the most not only because of past injuries but who is there to replace him not only for these 2 years left on his contract but beyond. He will be 35 when his contract ends and do you give him another? I think not. Ward is not the answer and hell if he wants 3 mil as a back up what is he gonna want as a #1 ? Forsberg and Delia are not proven and if that Miller kid I read about in the Ice Hogs thread get's anywhere near Rockford or Chicago I think we may see the Blackhawk Princess transform into the new Lizzy Borden going by her posts about him.

    You buy beers there? Get a 20oz insulated coffee cup and go to your trunk where the beers are iced down and refill the cup
