  1. One of the Canadian writers from out west, in a poll, in the Toronto paper had Forsberg as the Calder winner-(now that’s a stretch-and a big assumption)
    sure hope Murphy is healthy and productive, it’s nice to have some size on the back end.

  2. Connor Murphy is such a key piece to this team. We potentially have decent forward depth if none of the kids regress. But man does our D look better if Murphy can slot in alongside Keith.

  3. Uf Debrincat plays every game when they play Vegas on Oct. 24th his slide year is gone and the next game against Vegas Jan. 5th if still on roster he accrues a year toward ufa status.

  4. Agree with you Travis ,i really think that after 10-15 games with the Hawks Murphy will get use to his new environment and will become a really good Dman ..Murphy is still young and still have a lot to learn but he has a lot off guys with experience who can help him ..

  5. So much for youth movement, Hartman gets 19 goals last year and promptly gets benched for Wingels??? And Bouma!

  6. Savoir AKA Totti – read the lineup. Get to know the numbers. There’s a reason we published this. You’re welcome.

    Hartman is in the game. He has a goal. He is probably going to have a really good year if he sticks on the opposite wing of 88.

    Thus far, the Hawks top 6 looks absolutely lethal

  7. Love seeing Keith and Seabs back on the blue line together!

    Encore une fois, if you want to speak to Mr.Totti?, Tab, he may have a different area code. Merci
