Hossa Questionable, Hartman Possible For Friday

After Wednesday’s skate, indications are there could be a few more roster tweaks for Friday’s game in Columbus.

Coach Joel Quenneville indicated that rookie forward Ryan Hartman is possible to return to the lineup. Hartman, 22, had a goal and an assist in the Hawks’ first two games of the season, but left the second game because of a lower-body injury that has cost him the two subsequent contests.

Quenneville also updated the statues of Marian Hossa, who left Tuesday night’s game after blocking a shot early in the third period. Hossa is considered day-to-day and is questionable for Friday, but not ruled out.

Then there’s this:

Campbell, 37, hasn’t missed a regular season game since the Blackhawks traded him to Florida before the 2011-12 season. van Riemsdyk was a scratch for the Blackhawks’ last three games with Niklas Hjalmarsson back from suspension. Michal Rozsival has not appeared in a game yet.

  1. Columbus have some big wingers maybe feel tvr can handle them better than campbell on the right point

  2. Campbell did have the least amount of ice time…wonder if theres any chance he’s waived before that 10 games played mark

  3. Do you really think that could happen be hard to imagine after the money he left on the table for them they’d pull a move like that to save some cap space.

  4. I’m actually glad to see Campbell out because his play has been poor. Does anyone else think he is done? I don’t see them waiving him however. Would much rather see the young guys play, especially Forsling.

  5. Tvr can still be a capable 3rd pair defenseman and with a reduced load campbell can still contribute alot as a number 7 guy to insert in lineup if thats whats needed

  6. I don’t see it happening either. Was just kind of thought provoking. I’d still like to see Forsling paired with Hjalmarsson. Forsling has been good. But we havent seen that wicked shot he showed us in the preseason.

  7. Friedman reports that the Hawks could be shopping TVR and said they’d be looking for forward help. Not exactly earth shattering stuff. That could explain him being inserted into the lineup if you really want to look at it that deep. I don’t necessarily think they trade him. He’s cheap and top 6 help cost money and TVR don’t make enough. So they’d have to package him with someone else. I just don’t see him being traded. Not enough value for him to get a lot in return. But enough value to keep him on the roster.

    He’s slotted and paid accordingly. No need to trade him

  8. Be tough to get much for tvr and not much cap room created outside of maybe somebody going on a youth movement and trying unload a vet like mcclement or somebody like that who can help.out on faceoffs and pk not much else you can do

  9. Off topic….Fortin get 4 games suspention .illegal hit to the head with Shoulder..
    DeBrincat 1 g 1 a …2 pts.
    I dont think it would be good to wave TVR….after 3 games in the season ..we need him for the long run …still 79 games to play before Playoff
    Motte will be the next surprise in 15-20 games….
    Not sure about Schmaltz ,Rasm and Hartman ..nedd to see more.
    Forsling might be the Hawks top Rookie iff they keep him for more then 10 games.

  10. I don’t know whether Forsling is eligible to have his first ELC year slide if he plays less then 10 games in the NHL – I thought I read that he is not eligible and therefore the Hawks don’t have to worry about the 10 game threshold. Anyone have the facts on that? I hope they keep him – he’s shown enough already for the Hawks to keep him here to continue to develop his game.

  11. Forslings deal is ineligible to slide. Contracts only slide for age 18 and 19 seasons. This is Forsling’s age 20 season. He just has a deal in place where if he’s not on the Hawks by such a date he returns to Sweden instead of Rockford.

    I doubt they waive TVR, or Campbell for that matter. A trade is a possibility. But without shipping other money out, you’re not getting much if any upgrade at forward. So why would you when you’re probably going to need him during the season and to expose for expansion.

  12. Ernie- I thought I reported the TvR Trade thing a few weeks ago-lol

    I agree w/ You… they are looking to trade… but SB has little Cap room… so the other team would have to eat $$$, so If it happens- would be another “prospect”/which really doesn’t help… or a last year RFA/UFA that isn’t going to stick for more than one year…

    imo- it would be a great deal if SB finds “That guy”… but there just aren’t that many Choices/deals to choose from.

    At TDL- when there are more sellers- yes- but will it be too late for Hawks???

  13. Campbell has played poorly so far this year. He has lost a step and is getting beaten up on the boards. I wouldn’t trade TVR because he is a good insurance policy against Campbell’s continued poor play.

  14. Im fine with the Hawks rotation Soupy, and TVR. Forsling has shown a bunch of potential but i really like Kempny game. The reports were he was a 3rd or 4th defenseman and he appears to be exactly that. Good signing!
