  1. Would be an interesting signing with his size and production albeit from swedens second league.

    Looks like the hawks lost out on D Calle Rosen to Toronto.

  2. He had 57 points in 50 games. He hasn’t done much in the SHL. But the 2nd tier Allsvenskan did damn well.

  3. Read- he has great hands and vision… klunky skater… but not slow…

    Record points in 1 season for kid 22 yrs. or younger in SHL-2 league…

    led SHL-2 in scoring last year

    hope- SB can land him-seems like a low risk/high reward kid

  4. My guess- signs with Preds… supposedly was wined/dined when Preds thumped Hawks… and went out with the Preds young group of Swedes…

    Forsberg/Arvidsson/Ekholm

    How are Hawks gonna compete with that??? Here is Kruger and Oduya- Both will probably be gone by the time u get to Hawks.

    Sad- days are coming for Hawks/ and the Bad Contracts SB handed out!!!!

  5. Btw, defenseman Neil Pionk from Minnesota Deluth chose the Rangers.
    I actually thought he struggled in the Frozen Four. Looked very small in his own zone. Uses a long stick. But I watched him closely and thought he might just be an AHLer. Lots of quality chances against his team when he is on the ice. Backs way in on defense.

    Blake Hillman of Denver looked much more ready for a men’s professional league. Big, strong, nasty in front of his own net. Keeps exits out of his own zone simple.

    Granted it was a small sample size and they are 2 different types of players, I was a bit surprised when I read the Hawks were trying to sign Pionk last week.
