Blackhawks Place Four On Waivers

On Monday the Blackhawks placed Anton Lindholm, John Quenneville, Nick Seeler and Matt Tomkins on waivers.

None of those should be surprising given the relative depth on the NHL roster.

One name not on this list who would have required waivers to go to Rockford is Brandon Pirri. The veteran forward appears to be safe with the NHL club for now.

Not every team’s waiver list was as vanilla as the Hawks’ is, however.

Tampa Bay placed Tyler Johnson and Luke Schenn on waivers while Montreal did the same with veteran forwards Corey Perry and Michael Frolik.

  1. Hopefully Quennville Seeler and Lindholm get claimed but doubt it. Rockford bound.
    Oliver Kylington waived by the flames. Wouldn’t be a terrible option to claim

  2. Lines today:
    Debrincat. Strome. Kane
    Janmark. Kurashev. Wallmark. Shaw
    Pirri. Suter. Kubalik
    Highmore. Kampf. Carpenter

    Keith. Murphy
    Zadorov. Boqvist
    Dehaan. Mitchell
    Beaudin. Carlsson

    Delia
    Subban
    Lankinen

    One player at least needs to go to taxi squad to get to 23 limit. Teply must have been sent back to junior team, thought maybe they were going to use part of his 9 gamne window before returning to juniors.

  3. Last night’s scrimmage revealed that the usual suspects are in the on site reporter,s words,WOOF dogging it and going through the motions.Strome,Boqvist,Debrincat,along with Seeler trying to injure Reese Johnson at the end of a fight swinging at his head as he was down on the ice.On the positive side,Mitchell and the 4th line looked outstanding.Go get Tyler Johnson off that waiver list.

  4. 1. Tyler Johnson isn’t going to make any long or short term difference to this team. The Hawks are going to lose a bunch of games this year regardless of whether he’s on the roster. 2. Don’t do Tampa any favors. They still have cap trouble for next year and will need to move at least two contracts (only 17 signed and already $3.5 mil over). Let them burn a first rd pick to Seattle or another team to get rid of Johnson, Gourde or Palat. Don’t help them dig out of this hole. No one did the Hawks any favors for years when the roster needed to be gutted every offseason because of the cap. Plus, aren’t the Hawks trying to get younger? Why sign a 30 year old for four years?

  5. It is really hard to get a clean view of just what a teams salary cap space is. Most sites in a state of flux…some players listed on IR that are currently playing, others buried in minors listed on roster, etc. My understanding is, I guess at last I checked Vegas is the only team truly still over the salary cap.

    Question, were Gustoffsson and Murphy defensive partners when Gustoffsson was putting up big points? Murphy sure would look good in a flyers jersey.

  6. To those thinking of Tyler Johnson – seriously?? That makes no sense

    $5 M for 4 more years for a soft small player whose skills are only diminishing – and whose place would he take on the roster even without Toews and Dach? and they will be back by next year anyway maybe sooner

    By next year Kurashev will be a more valuable player to the Hawks than TJ would

    No thank you – what happened to the idea of a youth movement??

  7. So, Colliton lets go of one of the few Blackhawks who isn’t a coward during rough play – Nick Seeler. I know he’s not the best hockey player in the world, but didn’t we need somebody to protect all our kids during their expanded ice time this year? They WILL get bullied after competing with the same teams 7 or 8 times. Colliton, you moron, I swear I hope you get fired before the first month of the season is up! I am in my 60’s and you stand in the way of my ever seeing another cup, a’hole!

  8. BRAD ALLEN please go enjoy some Zadarov hit highlights …..then prepare to be disappointed

  9. 0-4 no doubt after road trip done. It’s no secret that the top teams have both speed AND physical tough play the last several years. We have neither. It’s all on the GM.
