Hawks Acquire Weise, Fleischmann From Habs

A busy couple days continued for the Blackhawks late Friday as Chicago brought two more forwards into the mix.

The Blackhawks acquired forwards Dale Weise and Tomas Fleischmann from Montreal for center Phillip Danault and a second round pick in 2018. Montreal is retaining 30 percent of Weise’s cap hit.

Chris Kuc reported earlier that that the Hawks wanted to move Teuvo Teravainen back to center, and were looking to add a winger to the third line. Weise would appear to be that man, and Fleischmann will bolster the bottom six as well.

Weise, 27, has 14 goals and 12 assists in 56 games with Montreal this year. He is an unrestricted free agent this summer, and the Hawks have reportedly been scouting him for some time.

Fleischmann, 31, has 10 goals and 10 assists in 57 games with the Habs. He, too, is an unrestricted free agent this summer.

More than a week ago, we had both Ladd and Fleischmann on our list of forwards the Hawks had interest in before the deadline.

Danault, 23, was the Hawks’ first round pick in 2011 and will be a restricted free agent this summer. He has one goal and four assists in 30 games with Chicago this season.

  1. Ok…now where does everyone go? …and now who is out? It’s only Friday to boot and perhaps more to come yet. Perhaps Toronto and a d-man?

  2. Wow.
    This one surprised me. Didn’t think they’d let go of Danault.
    There’s gonna be some competition to stay out of that healthy scratch category.
    Hopefully this bunch can mesh together over the next 20 or so games.
    Geez, there’s the whole weekend still to go as well!
    Go Blackhawks!!!!

  3. Hawkman ,.,.pity that line up you posted does not look cup ready,.,.

    Don,t shake it up to much Stan.,,.. The bread man is – 4 in the past 2 games ,.,.,wait till the playoffs and he,s tired and Russian and getting smashed into the boards,.,.,.,Whooooooooooo,,and Ansimnov is tired and Russian and getting spun off the puck,.,.,.,and little Tuevo is floundering with his new line mates .,.,wait and see this Sunday afternoon match-up,.,.,..,.,.,,. against the best team in the league.

  4. Is “TOO much” change possible?

    Seriously, I don’t know. If you can never have too much depth, it looks like Stan B. has that covered. Is adding 3-4 guys going to impact “chemistry”? On the surface, obviously these seem to be all upgrades (I don’t know too much about Weise and Fleischmann beyond the numbers) – they have to be better than Mashinter and Rasmussen (Panik? — Desi has earned his spot)…?

    Again, I don’t really know, but (“on paper” cliché) the Hawks look like the best at the moment. GO HAWKS!!

  5. There is some hidden anomaly here that we can’t see. Ladd, Weiss, AND Fleischman? Stan Sees something we don’t? I’m intrigued. I want to watch what happens for the rest of the season. Although, If the post season fails prior to to the conference finals, I will wonder why.

  6. Danault a surprise, as he was looking as a long term Kruger solution-
    but they are now a better team for this year-high risk-hopefully high reward.

  7. good safe and smart move . . . makes the Hawks a little better and deeper for playoffs. Nothing unexpected . . .

    go hawks

  8. Haters going to hate; we don’t feed the trolls here. Only a fan from a team that has no idea about post season success would put any of stock into a regular season game in March lol.

  9. Just for fun the addition of Ladd brings the Hawks post season games played to 1365 NHL playoff games

  10. Shaw (31 points)
    TT (25 points)
    Weise (26 points)

    Aggressive 3rd line with Shaw and Weise who are capable of scoring. Great top 9 for the Hawks

  11. Jeff- I like your lines better… + if Fleisch stinks… MOOSE has proven to be able to Muck it up with the best… so he could move to 4LW

    Now- remove the Handcuffs… PLEASE!!! and get a top 4 D man rental… and I really like the Hawks chances!!!

    Noonan- Kruger is a better replacement for Kruger!!!

  12. Timmo = Ernhoff
    Richards = Wiese
    Vermette = Ladd
    Flesh= insurance

    Not comparing players….just sayin rentals gonna be rentals

  13. I guess that you have to ask yourself for spring 2016
    Lost: Sharp, Saad, Richards, Timmo, Vermette, Oduya
    Gain: Anisimov, Paranin, Ladd, Wiese, Ernhoff

    Better? worse? we will see

  14. 1961: I watch a lot of late night west coast games. Ehroff was terrible, that’s why LA made the trade w/ Flyers. Hopefully the change of scenery awakens him.

  15. Don’t know if Stan is done with the “D” yet but Erhoff has a better Corsi than any Hawks defenseman and can at least carry the puck up the ice once in a while. May also give Seabrook a spark who’s had to carry youngsters all year.

    At worst, pair him with Rosy and get TVR and Svedberg to the bench for the playoffs

  16. I like Jeff’s lines despite mis-spelling the Captain’s last name. Instead of Fleischmann, could also throw Panik in there.

  17. I hate to see Philip go. I really saw him as a fixture for the next few years. Also would have rather give a 3rd. Prospect and 2nd seems high, but oh well.

    Lets just get a cup. We are officially all in.
