  1. Meanwhile– Bouma- “fills a role” for the team– lol

    Watched guy- as much as possible… was late hitting guys- cuz- he ain’t fast enough to hit them – while they have/or release the puck… basically running himself out of plays… PUKE… other than doing a Sopel shot blocking on PK– guy does nothing for this team!!!

    And Hawks all ready have a Sopel ( albeit – at $7M caphit)

  2. Who didn’t see this coming? When Vinnie made that beautiful pass to Wingels the first thing I thought was how Vinnie could not make the team. Then I realized this was completely counterintuitive. The Hawks will generally find an excuse to keep some no-talent “grit” guy (e.g. Mashinter) over a young skilled player.

    Whatever Bouma brings to the table is lost on me.

  3. Just put Rozival on ltir may allow them to keep all but a $925,000 salary up. Recall it to max out Hossa. Could be as much as 6.85m in room.

  4. Fine; he will get a ton more ice time than he would on the blackhawks…I’m sure he’lll be on the team at some point this season….

  5. MRFENN92, totally agree with VINNY being on the team!!! He has elite speed and works hard every shift! When Toews went down early last year, Vinny centred that first line and was great! Why our GM signs BOUMA, WINGELS, and KERO is a mystery but not that surprising because he remains clueless.!
