  1. Bowman make sure Mitchell signs with the Hawks!!!! Tab is there anyone on this list that jumps out at you besides Mitchell & Barrett?

  2. Just a note for what its worth, Victor Edjsell putting together a decent season in top Swedish league
    13g 9a in 29 games.

    Still under Blackhawks control, if any chance he ever gets brought back, likely be next training camp or maybe even end of this year.

    Don’t put much stock in this Mitchell not signing, he said he would go with that until he shows different. One minute not signing and next minute not a good prospect nobody be interested in, is just a waste if time. He has a good hocley IQ and sooner or maybe be later if he needs to, he quite likely will be a solid top 4 Dman for this organization.

  3. Possible Mitchell, Regula, Barrett, Teply, Saarela and Gravel all sign elcs for next season and start year in Rfd.

  4. So it appears that the only Prospect that knocks you out of your chair with his stats is Regula,the prospect obtained from Detroit a couple months ago.Exhibit A as to the requests for a new management team which includes a clean sweep of everyone not just Stan Bowman.Mitchell is from a small town just outside of Edmonton.You know,that place where Connor McDavid plays.Where would you want to go?

  5. I would argue there’s a good NHL future for Mitchell, Regula & Vlasic on the blue line. Up front, Teply, Barrett & Saarela are interesting and the two Russians – Altybarmakyan and Kayumov – have a lot of skill.

    re: Tim’s comment about Mitchell & Edmonton – every indication from the organization + player are that Mitchell will sign w/ the Blackhawks when his college career is over. And he’s going to be a good one. I’m as high on him as any defensive prospect the Hawks have had since Leddy.

  6. Kayumov signed a 2 year extension with his KHL team in Russia.Allegedly his agent here did not know about it.He will not be here in any form until the end of 2022.

  7. Kayumov was definitely coming here this year before he decided to sign a Contract to not come here. The 1 thing that Stan Bowman said 2 days ago that I agree with is,until they sign there is nothing definite.Youngsters tend to change their minds very quickly.

  8. @Tim
    So are you just gonna completely ignore who the Hawks graduated to the NHL this season and that this list doesn’t include anybody in Rockford? This isn’t the prettiest list of prospects but the Hawks are currently playing with 10 guys under 24 and 7 or 8 of them are rookies.

    As for Mitchell, why do people think he’s going to turn down possibly making 6 or 7 figures and further delay his ability to sign a contract as an unrestricted free agent just to return to college instead of playing in the league he’s been dreaming about since he was a kid? There’s no point in worrying about this until he says he’s returning for his senior season.

  9. Just commenting on the list in front of me.I like both 77 and 27 but pushing them both into regular NHL shifts doesn’t seem like the best way to develop their careers.77 is getting tossed around like a rag doll and he won’t shoot the puck or go to the middle of the ice.He has no protection out there and won’t defend himself.27 has great difficulty in the corners and defending the net front.Again,not his fault.He needs time to put on weight and develop.But since they are both getting 15 to 20 minutes of nhl ice a night,I dont think you can say they are prospects.

  10. I am not worried about Mitchell,just putting Stan Bowman,s words out there and enlightening people of what some other sure signees have been doing.I would just watch closely how Denver,s season progresses.

  11. For all the Stan Bashers that don’t think Mitchell signs… So you’re saying if you knew the kid was going to be a legit prospect and realistic top pair possibility in 3 years that would twice represent Canada internationally. Once in the Juniors and once in the Spengler cup. A player that would become captain of his college team as a junior and wear an “A” as a sophomore. As well as an “A” for Canada’s WJC team.

    You’re telling me you wouldn’t draft that sort of player late in the 2nd round because he has the option to not sign 4 years after the draft, despite not showing any inkling of actually exercising that option?

    You’re absolutely full of yourself and your bias is stupidly obvious.

  12. Rusty,Take a breath.Nobody is bashing Stan Bowman for the choice.Its an organization that needs close to Nhl ready players like yesterday and this team is not in that position by accident.There is an inkling of doubt until he signs,Stan Bowman has stated as much.The Russian kid was definitely going to be here this year also and that changed quickly.Just wanting this organization to have plans B and C ready.
