  1. Whenever his season is over, bring this guy up. If memory serves correct, Roenick had a cup of coffee w/ the Hawks late in his first season, and was a decent playoff contributor. The only question w/ Debri is Q’s mindset as to if he is “responsible” defensively.

  2. DeBrincat definitely knows how to put the puck in the net. His willingness to play the 200′ game is probably more of a factor than his size. Kid has a chance though.

  3. His season probably won’t end end of april or may and quite possible next year in rockford and may be a slide year and his 3yr. elc starts in 2018-19 season, so doubtful we will see much of him for a bit.

  4. This season is considered a slide year for Debrincat. Next year as long as he doesn’t play 10 NHL games will be a slide year as well. So his ELC could start 18/19. Harman had the same scenario.

    Regarding his 200′ game. He plays on the first PK unit of the 3rd ranked PK team.

  5. Good example of yet another potential really good player from early/mid 2nd pick. 1st picks are good but depending on draft might not be better depends on whos available at that time of draft.

    It made sense to move up and to get Schmaltz because we wanted him, it doesn’t mean we have to keep pick 26-30 if we have/get back an eraly/mid 2nd that’s basically same/as good.

    Do not mind trading a 1st (preferably 18 or 19 draft) to get a good player but I think we can add a good add for a 4th or so/prospect (like Hands). Theres a way to keep every top prospect we have and higher picks and add a good FW.

    Bowman likes to keep the prospects even longer then sell high for bigger return because when you trust the players to play better through time. That way we get stuck with some but also get to keep the better guys. Were good at being able to tell, when you look at who we traded. People thought it was bad to trade good prospects, like Johns, but end up seeing it was a good move. Our guys are good at what we do.

    Were loading up, regardless of deadline trades, for the coming yrs with a good group of good guys that can play. Fucking beauty.

  6. Ribero on waivers also.

    As for Debrincat, coaches have said his physical strength needs to get up to NHL level before he can ascend that high. Great player but still not ready.

  7. We really have good guys/players in Hartman and Schmaltz.

    Hartman looks like he can bring it. 8 looks like hes on the verge to making plays (like Tazer was before he went off).

  8. Now that piece of shit (requested a trade when on a good team) can ride the bus more then he really wants to.

  9. Decat has now 18 pts in is last 5 games…he is back to normal production after having a bad 6-8 games before those 5 games …maybe he was hurt ?
    Fortin didnt play last 2 games for Rouyn ….
    I think Decat need 1-2 years before getting to NHL …
    Wish to see Motte getting a look with the Hawks again …Iff he is ready

  10. I saw him play twice live in that stretch (one point in two games) he didn’t look engaged. I think he had a two or three week stretch where he was pissed and/or disillusioned about being cut. They play a long season, 68 games, and this is his third year where he’s been quite successful. (I like that these kids play closer to an NHL sched. compared to NCAA)
    Now he can smell the playoffs and possible Memorial Cup-with London, Windsor, the Sault and Owen Sound all in the West and all playing well. Each game counts.
    Now they want first overall in the West. (The east is much weaker)
    Windsor and Graham Knott are in as Memorial Cup host.
