    Lost cause. I just don't see it happening. Can't be consistent, can't refrain from making stupid decisions on the ice. He's seemed to have lost favor with the front office, who weren't responsible for drafting him in the first place. I don't see him ever playing a game in the NHL as a Blackhawk, and perhaps not ever. His NHL career, if he has one, will be reminiscent of Ty Jones.

    I know this was posted a while ago, but I don't see why Montreal would move Subban for Leddy. If they were willing to, I'd jump on that one and never look back.

    Very good point and one that I have overlooked until now.

    People assume this, but a while back I read an article (I forget where, because it was a few months back) where our GM said he still was expecting big things from Beach. Yes, he makes stupid decisions sometimes, but he was starting to turn a corner before he got hurt. He sounds like he's pretty motivated to prove that he can still be an impact player.

    Listen to the audio link. They discuss how he worked his butt off to get back before the end of the season.

    I hear where you are coming from but it is really hard to trust anything a GM says. They better be inflating the tires of every prospect...whether it is to make the prospect feel good or to keep his trade value up. No point in putting down one of their own prospects.

    I guess I'm in the minority here in thinking that he still can reach his potential. I think he's close to where he could play 4th line minutes in Chicago soon. I do think that he could develop into a very solid power forward type. I don't think a future 20-goal, 40-point season is out of the question at all, and I think the potential is there to put up an even better season.

    I'll admit he's behind, but he seems to embrace that. He also was working on when to get in fights and just playing smarter. The biggest thing is that he's not down on himself. He believes he can be a big-time player and is determined to show the team that he can be that player that they thought he'd become when they (Tallon and co.) drafted him.

    Also, I don't think that Bowman is just "inflating the tires" on Beach. I think he believes that Beach has a lot of talent and can still be a very productive player in the NHL someday.

    This was tweeted tonight by Tim Sassone. Yea, I know, take it for what it's worth coming from him. But concerning Beach...

    Fair enough. RT @KWMettler: @TimSassone thanks..... But the Bowman's they don't like Beach Is that a correct assumption??

    2 goals tonight for Morin in a 5-3 loss to the Wolves. One came on the powerplay. Nice start to the season for Jeremy.

    Dylan Olsen is actually one of my favorite prospects on the Blackhawks right now. However, I do not believe that he should play in the NHL for atleast another year (there are others that disagree, which is fine).

    Olsen has the size and snarl that the Blackhawks need. His foot speed is what is killing him right now.

    I thought he played pretty well in the first half of his games at the NHL level last year...and then teams started to beat him wide with regularity.

    Definitely a guy that I think can slot into a #4/5 spot (more likely 5) but that is probably going to be a spot that the Blackhawks need in the future...even more so than a #1/2, even though no one would complain if that's what he turns into.
