    Saturday against the Bruins, he was playing on Anisimov's right.

    I'm watching some highlights of him with Erie, and he's mostly been on the right side. This is a selected number of games though, so take it with a grain of salt. Couldn't find any other source separating stats between the two wings. On elite prospect though, they have him listed as RW/LW.

    I actual believe that they need to be cap compliant the first day of the season, and can get the max cap relief placing Hossa on LTIR on day 1 of the season as well. The Hawks don't play until day 2 of the season, so there will be moves today and tomorrow, but expect them to have 13F/8D/2G combo on the actual roster when they play the Pens on October 4th. If I'm wrong, so be it, but that's how I interpreted the rules.

    Unclear if this includes Rosie before LTIR, or is he posting the roster numbers excluding Hossa and Rosie.

    I'll agree that he will improve and be a valuable asset on the the team's blueline. This is only is second year in North America. Different rink size and faster play does take some time getting used to. I wouldn't write him off just yet. Also I would not just waste cap money to have a player with his skill set and his cap hit sit. He will only get better by playing, can't send him down or put him on waivers because he will be taken, there's not much in terms of top 4D left in free agency. Also if you're going to waste that money, mind as well put it towards a forward. Also it would be unwise for the hawks to use all of the cap relief. LTIR isn't guaranteed for the entire season (as far as I know), they will be reevaluated. Hossa will be done for the year, but what if Rosie becomes eligible to play, then we'll be over the cap and then what?

    What's the other option??

    So the 4th line would be Bouma/Wingels-kero-Hayden? Who's the odd man out? I also have a feeling that Hinostroza was just sent down for cap purposes until Tootoo, Berube, and Jurco clear waivers or get picked up or through cap relief from LTIR. I think Rosie's claim is a given, so that would be enough to bring Vinnie back. He had a real good camp and preseason IMO. However, that would make it 14F if my math is right, so it honestly depends how much playing time Q will give him and if he would fair better in Rockford.

    I recall that too, but like I said that happened what seems like years ago and I couldn't remember so I had to google it myself. haha

    http://www.espn.com/nhl/player/_/id/2562602/phillip-danault Says he's a winger. Unless it was in the works that he would center for us. MTL has him as a LW. http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=45282 This lists him as both. Nonetheless. He's too far gone for me to recall what the plan was for him when the Hawks had him.

    That trade hurts. Both were producing quality minutes and offense but when they come to Chicago they fall absolutely flat. Makes it even worse that we lost a quality prospect winger and a draft pick. Welp can't win them all I guess.

    I'm trying to look up these guys on Hockeysfuture and it's outdated articles. Not sure if I'm looking at the right website to get the analysis and such. Home page is analysis from last year's draft when they should've already had articles about this draft. Is there another link besides the one google gives me

    Okay Our Defence?

    Panarin came from the KHL. You have some very good players in the KHL that do have the ability to play in the NHL if there is a team with a good fit (culture transition because NA is way different than Russia, language). KHL doesn't fork over the salaries of the NHL so most Russian players strive to come over to NA unless you have the talents of a Panarin. And most KHL players aren't prospects and wouldn't come over to NA to play in the AHL. Now Russia does have Junior major leagues that are similar to the CHL which is how Ovechin got drafted but CHL is far more superior. They also have to compete against NCAA, USA development teams, Canadian development teams and it should be noted that the NHL is involved in both of those leagues so it's hard for KHL players to make a big enough impact to get noticed by NHL teams. So really it comes down to exposure and the Russian league just doesn't have that in NA unless you have the incredible talent like Oveckhin or Panarin. The Czech, finnish, and SEL are professional leagues however, they have a interesting dynamic where you can see a lot of European prospects compete with professional players...kids going up against men essentially. So it's pretty telling how physical a Dman can be in those leagues because they are up against professional players. I'm not sure if you can compare these leagues to the AHL because a lot of those players are prospects instead of professional guys who aren't good enough to be in the NHL combine with future prospects who just want to be seen. Think of it this way...Europe doesn't have College hockey or Major juniors comparable to what NA does, so these prospects go to these professional leagues to be seen and get drafted and then go to the AHL, but some also stay in Europe until they are brought up to the big club...but these European leagues also produce players that go straight to the NHL. So skill level I guess you can say that AHL has a higher % of NHL ready players but I think the two leagues do different things... I'm also not a scout but this is how I interpret what the internet tells me.

    I think this is a key point here. I have high hopes for Kempny but every thinks he's an average guy because he rarely touched the ice. He's a puck moving Dman. There was a lot of hype when we signed him but the moment Q benches him everything thinks he's a movable asset (well everyone is). People rarely take into consideration the significance the transition from Europe to North America is. Faster game with a smaller rink. Players have to adapt to the decreased space and I think Ulf will help with that. But you can't develop any of these players in the pressbox for have them forever simmer in Rockford or Juniors. They have to get NHL time before passing judgement. That goes for Ruuta, Gus, and Pokka as well.

    I agree with your take on the Hammer deal. He will be expecting an increase in salary in a couple years and he will move on in free agency and we get nothing in return. However, I do agree with Q's take that the Hawks should still be in the mindset of winning now while the Core still has miles left. Moving Hammer for a developing Dman isn't exactly what I had in mind. Grant it, Murphy was on a real bad team, so I hope he proves me wrong and is a solid stay at home Dman. Regarding Panarin, in the other thread I've been a huge advocate for keeping Panarin also realizing that he wasn't a physical presence and that after two playoff appearances I think he'll realize the physicality he needs to bring. All this changed when Hossa left. Losing a 2-way Forward is a larger hole than the hole that is left by Panarin. He is a scoring talent, but that's not what is needed IMO. Believe me I am going to miss his abilities, but I won't regret moving him in place of a 2-way talent such as Saad. Plus, it's not like he can't score. He was a scoring threat with Toews, and he was also a scoring threat in Columbus.

    I figure it was nothing but why is this twitter or news worthy? Didn't know if there was anything else to it.
