He really reminds me of a miniature Hossa - great on the boards, plays great defense, awesome backchecking, and is good with the puck. Unfortunately, Frolik just has a terrible shot and release to his shot.

    In terms of why the CBJ would take one of those guys back, because they need to fill out their roster and because Umberger has a bigger contract and they might have to take salary back. Montador/Frolik would probably be included but it would obviously be all about the prospects/picks the Blackhawks are willing to give up.
    Exactly. It'd be either frolik or montador and that would allow them to get better prospects/picks along with fro/monty. Plus both players still have to potential to be somewhat productive, and Columbus has plenty of cap. We also have plenty of prospects to give. Makes perfect sense for both teams, depending on their in-division dealing policies.

    THIS. Agree, as far as non-hawks players go. However, I think I would look like someone who didn't know what hockey was until this year and trying to be "in" with the most recent winnig team's jersey.

    I also agree with the Eberle comments. I am an Oilers fan, although I can't seem to figure out why, haha.

    I have a home Brouwer jersey, black alternate Kaner jersey, away Norfolk Admirals Brouwer jersey, and a home Oilers Petr Klima jersey (very distant relative of mine).

    I had thought about getting a Getzlaf jersey because I like his play style as well, but decided against it at the time.

    For the first bolded, it's because they're one of the most offensively gifted young teams in all of hockey. For the second bolded, I'd hold off until after next off-season, as I feel there's a good chance that either him or Perry leaves the team in free agency.

    I respect what everyone is saying and really enjoy this board, but how can any of us think that we can trade Frolik and/or Montador to get anything of value in return. No one thinks Frolik has any trade value and Montador is coming off a major concussion. I think we would have to pay someone to take those two and their contracts right now. It would be great if Columbus would take these guys, but there is no way.

    I think you are misunderstanding us.

    I think most are saying that Frolik/Montador would go back because of salary cap reasons. Then, those teams would also receive prospects/picks, and possibly upgrades in those for taking Frolik/Montador back. The value would definitely be in the accompanying pieces, not Frolik/Montador. At best those two guys straight up would get a low draft pick or prospect from a team desperate for them.

    Fair enough, that makes sense. In a salary swap type situation, moving them merits some logic. Thanks.

    No worries. Sounds like everyone is on the same page with those guys!

    2 part question:

    True/False Sharpie leads the team in goals this year.
    Over/under 35 goals for whoever leads the team.
    False - I see Toews leading the team

    Over - hopefully we get a 40+ goal scorer since Amonte did it (it will actually be under due to the potential lockout)




    True/False - Bolland sees time as the 2 line center

    False: Maybe a spot start here and there, but I truly believe this is Qs team this year and he has control over the personal given to him. With that said, I believe that in Q's system Bolland is his guy for the 3C position.

    Over/Under: Blackhawks have 5.5 twenty goal scorers.

    Hmmm. Let's see who we have.

    Kane
    Toews
    Sharp
    Hossa
    Stalberg?
    Bolland?
    New addition, such as a #2C or someone like Saad?

    Would need 2 of the 3 question marks to pot 20 this year.

    Don't see Carcillo or Shaw hitting 20.

    I'll say under.

    True/false: 40+ assists for a dman this year.

    More trade rumor winds blowing on the Evander Kane front, and more denial by the Jets. Hmm. Something to watch here moving forward.

    I think this is the second time it has come out that E. Kane requested a trade...and then the second time where it was denied by either himself or the organization. However...where there is smoke, there is usually fire. He hasn't signed with the Jets yet so there definitely may be something there.

    Blackhawks do have an edge with a former employee sitting in the GM chair in Winnipeg.

    I think the base would be...Stalberg + Hammer/Leddy. From there it would probably go to a pick/prospect and it depends on if the Jets want Hammer or Leddy.

    The Chicago Blackhawks. I was told this by a few sources over the last 48 hours that the Hawks have interest in Evander Kane and Shane Doan and are currently putting together a huge offer for Kane...

    In Doan's case I am hearing the ever tipping scale is tipping back towards the Coyotes and this week, especially the first few days of this week, are when we are most likely to see a resolution with Doan signing in Phoenix...

    Evander Kane is a totally different situation. In many ways the Kane story reminds me of the Jordan Staal story from earlier this summer. While Kane is not "asking to be traded" as some have reported, it appears the door is at least a bit open to such an outcome...and the Hawks could be putting together the kind of package that nudges the door even further...
    From Eklund...key word being "Eklund" - still something to talk about.
