    OK Tab…..How about this

    Mayers Shaw Saad Leddy Hjalmarsson
    Frolik Kruger Carcillo

    Mike:

    It seems Kane & Hossa are both best when playing RW, so I don’t know that your top line would happen. With that being said, the intrigue really comes with the third line if Bolland is successful at 2C. By putting Bolland between Kane & Sharp, you’re giving him the best opportunity to succeed, and we’ve seen that a line including Toews & Hossa can be dynamite as well. One combination that would interest me on the third line would be Bickell-Mayers-Carcillo… those two might get Bickell to (finally) use his size. re: Frolik, imo he’s in a battle to be the 12th fwd on this roster with a few prospects.

    Tab are we gonna see something like this for our Forwards? :

    Carcillo/ Saad Toews Hossa

    Sharp Bolland Kane

    Bickell Shaw Stalberg

    Saad/ Carcillo Kruger Mayers/ Frolik

    Tab,
    You know….I agree. I would love to see Bickell in the mix. Maybe Carcillo and Mayers can light a fire under his butt. That would be an awesome 3d or 4th…….but Bickell would have to pick up on the defense a bit as Mayers and Carcillo are a bit slower.

    You are also right that Kane and Hossa are best at RW. Keep Kane with Toews and do a Sharp Bolland Hossa on the second line.
    Stalberg Toews and Kane would be a fast tough and quick front line

    Let Kruger work with rookies on the 4th line
    Saad Kruger Shaw

    So, what’s the mysterious injury of Steve Montador and why he didn’t pass his physical test on Saturday? Is it because he’s been dealing with concussion issues or what’s the real reason?

  6. Tab Bamford says:

    No mystery, Adam. It’s been widely reported that Montador has ongoing concussion symptoms, and the Tribune’s Chris Kuc reports on Wednesday that he “isn’t close” to returning to the ice.
