  1. Cumiskey has a lower body injury, whatever that means, so this makes sense. It’s really about the only thing they could have done with him for now. He’ll have ample time to get healthy and play a bit in Rockford and then we’ll see how things shake out. I’m not terribly impressed with Cumiskey’s skill set (although he’s got great wheels) but it’s good to have depth.

  2. The Hawks really just need a dman to chip in on the PK and in their own end.

    Again knitpicking but IMO this roster needs a 5th or 6th reliable dman and a 3rd line center. Rosy can probably play the former once again. That 3rd line center center can likely come from the Hogs; Mouse or Dannault?

  3. I like Danault as a 3 or 4cc, too bad he’s out for a few more months Rasmussen doesn’t do a whole lot for me.
