Blackhawks Recall Teuvo Teravainen

On Wednesday morning, the Blackhawks made a few roster moves in the wake of Patrick Kane’s regular season-ending injury.

The team placed Kane on LTIR and recalled forward Teuvo Teravainen from Rockford. Chicago also assigned defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk to Rockford as he works his way back from injury.

  1. So Q said TT was sent down because there wasn’t a spot for him in the top-6 – well there is now. Let’s see if Q plays him in Kane’s spot, if not 5 on 5 then at least on the PP.

  2. ER – I agree about TT in the top 6. Considering 88’s injury, the team is short a big playmaker.

    Top 6 should be…

    Saad-Toews-Hossa
    Sharp-Richards-TT

    Q should let TT sink or swim at that spot for a decent amount of time, with the understanding that their will be some rookie mistakes, but as long as the good outweighs the bad, and he is progressing, then stick with him. Much like he did with Saad on the top line in his first go, even though Saad wasn’t getting any points, he was playing well, so Q stuck with him (until he didn’t). I think TT has that type of talent, and should be given first crack at “replacing” Kane in the lineup. Regardless, the team had some problems to resolve even before 88 went down for the season.

  3. This is a big opportunity for TT. He is no Kane at this point but he might be able to fill in some of the huge scoring void left by 88. I would like to see him with 23 & 10. This is also time for Sharp to step up. It would also be helpful to see somebody from the group of 65,29,16 &28 score once in a while.

  4. Every hockey team has to deal with injuries every game and every season. Some injuries are short term and some are extended term………the Hawks need to work through this and be successful. I believe that they can work through this situation.

    As far as Kaner goes, don’t try to come back too soon. If he is gone for 8-10 weeks, right it off and come back next year all healed up.

  5. ….. trades are being made as we are all conducting our daily affairs… Bowman is as likely to pull the trigger and make the requisite acquisition(s) as Carcillo is to be nominated for Lady Byng Trophy. This isn’t sitting around at the blackjack table with thousands of dollars in arsenal waiting for the right hand to pop up…

  6. I would like to see these lines
    10-19-81 , last hurray for Sharpie
    20-86-23, give TT 2 guys that can score and know how to play both ways
    29-91-65, all no scoring line, maybe Shaw on the wing will help his game.
    42-16-28, all no scoring line 2, but at least they can play against the other teams top lines
    AND Q should be under orders to leave the kid play on that line for 5 games – regular shifts, and coach him – not just staple his but to the bench if he messes up.

  7. The bigger story is Kane going on LTIR which opens up 5 million dollars for the Hawks to use on a player. The better news is once Kane returns in the playoffs the Hawks don’t need to get under the cap. The regular season cap doesn’t count for the playoffs, very odd but true.

  8. More not so great news-Elliot Friedman-who is well respected in NHL circles stated that the cap will be closer to 69 million that any other number (million).
    So contrary to some posters saying it wouldn’t go down that low-it might.

  9. No Capgeek… Can anyone confirm how much $$$ SB will have considering all the ltir the Hawks have piled up???

    Mike57… I agree TT needs some guys who can score AND win some board battles…
    So I skate
    20/19/86
    10/91/81 Hossa can contribute with anyone!!!
    and hope the rest of the guys show up!!!
    91 with 86 just don’t seem right to me

  10. @ wall

    Take the current space the Hawks have under the cap, which is about 800k and subtract Kane’s cap hit which is roughly 6 million and that leaves the Hawks with about 5.2 million they can add at the deadline.

  11. Noonan, I think that’s without the escalator. We need the players to vote yes.

    Wall/SSHM, I think we had .853 so I don’t know why we didn’t callup Johns again for a day to get closer to the cap (.053) which would be .800 more then we have. Kaners caphit is 6.3-.853 is 5.447m

  12. Plus when we add a Defenseman we would waive Erixon which add another .600 so we really have 6.047m in cap space for the deadline. Also add another .894 (or .616) if we add a FW as well.

    Yandle 5.250
    Michalek (ufa) 4.0
    Vermette 3.750

    We could tech. add Yandle and Vermette (50% retained) by waiving 86, 34 and 26.

  13. How long was Soupy hurt (collar bone and broken ribs) when he got checked in the back into the boards by that Russian.
