I say this :thumbsup

I'm guessing the NHL will go back to the method of selecting a pool of stars, and then allowing fans to vote from that pool. Safest way to do it while still giving fans a "say" in the voting.

I meant dump him from the NHL roster. He just is not contributing at all, if it was the NFL he'd be cut but since it is the NHL I think he is going to languish in Rockford until some team makes the mistake of picking up his contract!

Amazing, 12 game winning streak for Chicago. Kane is just about unstoppable right now on offense and he has also turned into a much better two way player. I know Saad and Sharpe were tough losses but I really think they are a better team this year buy picking up Panarin, Anisimov, Panik, Rasmussen, Mashinter and Scuderi.

Only thing I have to complain about is that TVR seems to think he is a shooter, love how he puts the puck on net to create chances but he is simply not a scorer like Keith and Seabrook!

Go Hawks! :)

Lecavalier with another goal tonight. 3 goals in 3 games. Kings resurrect another player.

I agree - unless some team GM gets all hopped up on booze and drugs and thinks he may help their team. :lol

Was at the Flames game tonight. Fun game! Also, one of the players (I didn't really see who) tossed me a puck because I was wearing a Flames jersey lol. Bad second period put them behind 3-1 and despite a good push late, the Flames couldn't come back.

Good times though.

The only teams I could see taking him on are borderline playoff teams WITH cap space AND that have a bad contract of their own of a worse player AND that could use a big body in a 3rd/4th line role.

I mean, Ottawa with Chris Neil for Bickell, maybe? And then the Hawks can just bury Neil in the AHL instead of Bickell? Philly with Gagner for Bickell? Maybe the Ducks get desperate and give up a 7th rounder (or future considerations) and the Hawks retain $1m? Maybe Calgary with Mason Raymond?

There are options. I don't know how many of them are even close to plausible, but the Leafs were able to trade David Clarkson...I don't think anything is impossible.

It's a good problem to have, though. Let him keep ripping. The Hawks were missing that piece since Leddy left. He's just a kid, it'll get better the more he does it.

It's not even the amount of assists that I'm talking about though, it's the quality. It's been a while since I've seen players have to do less to score goals. I think it was Jason Chimera who said the other day that sometimes he won't see Kuzy or the puck, he'll just feel it hit his stick and then it's in. The regularity with which he does it is astounding.

I figured you'd like that part. I remember that night, but in a bad way. Was at my in-laws and my mother in-law (MSU grad) had the game on and I remember thinking "gotta watch that when we get home." I fucking forgot and didn't see it. I remember watching that goal a few years later on youtube and thinking "holy shit that's Cory Schneider in goal!"

I think it's so awesome for him (and also Glendenning, DeKeyser and Larkin) to be able to play for the hometown team.

Huh. They used to say that about another player. Don't remember his name, but I think he wore #99.

:thumbsup Agreed! I love defensemen that aren't afraid to shoot. In today's NHL, goalies are so good at stopping the first shot. The most sure fire way to score is to get bodies in front and create chaos, looking for deflections or rebounds. A defenseman shooting from the point, while forwards clog up the slot and take opposing defensemen with them, is the perfect way to start the kinda havoc that will lead to goals.

Agreed on the age, just seems like every time he fires one from the blue line it is right at the goalie and gets smothered with no rebound. Luckily he will grow up and mature being tutored by guys like Keith and Seabrook!

Never know, there are teams that could use a big winger on a fourth line who hits hard, plays hard and back checks. Going to be a question of money more than anything though.

Nothing is impossible though, heck John Scott is an enforcer who is not all that skilled but he still made the all star game and was voted captain.....

Give it up. If they could have done it, they would have by now.

Wow, very exciting game between St. Louis and Detroit. Shame the Blues won though. Steen is a jackass IMO!

Glad Dallas lost again, their D is for shit but their O is damn good.

Cannot believe I am cheering for the Ducks tonight.

Very much looking forward to the Hawks/Lighting game tomorrow!

Jonathon Drouin is an idiot. I hope he doesn't get his trade and remains in suspension limbo all season.
