    Vinnie Praplan- Free agent…

    check out kid’s highlites… might be something there

    Might Be Panarin-lite… sick hands… Datsyuk-like back hander…

    small sample- but might have better hands/stick-handling than Panarin…
    doubt if he can skate or Pass/vision of Panarin… (few do)

    Scored well for Swiss World Cup!!!

    I wonder if Radke ends up signing am Ahl deal.

    i was looking at the highlights…Praplan…looks good but the speed doesn’t look really fast in that league..maybe its the angle with the Cameras ?

    Love the rookie camp; here are a few guys I’ve will have my eyes on Group A

    Luke Johnson- bottom 6 forward who likely can kill penalties and play a defensive role.

    Raddyish- Is he a future NHL or AHL guy? He will likely be in the AHL but can he win a bottom 6 role this season?

    DCat-no brainer the Hawks need him to matter

    Highmore-overshadowed by DCAT but Highmore dominated his league sneaky pick to make the Hawks weak bottom 6.

    Soderberg-young swede with NHL size. He has controlled by the Hawks for 3 seasons now. Good camp may put him in Rockford

    Wouter Peeters- here is the Hawks “goalie of the future” he will playing in N America this season came over seveal months back.

    I’m bummed Fortin won’t be able to participate on the ice – he was the guy I thought might have the best chance of making the Hawks out of camp. I suppose he still can if he’s back to 100% by training camp. In the small sample size I saw last year he reminded me of Mike Hoffman on Ottawa with his skating style and speed and ability to get open for shots.

    Obviously D-Cat needs to show better than he did last summer but I believe his talent will rise to the top at some point, even if it takes time in Rockford.

    Highmore and Dauphin are 2 centerman I’ll be keeping a close eye on. Forlsing and the other Swedes on D too.

    But guys I thought D-Cat was only a novelty act? Not one game in the bigs yet, only 19, but he’s been labelled already.
    At least Rockford will have some talent and interest the next couple of years.

    @ HUSH PUPPIES DADDY are you serious?

    Theoren Fleury 5’6 455 NHL goals
    Mats Zuccarello 5″7 15 goals last season
    Brad Marchand 5’9 39 goals LAST season
    Viktor Arvidsson 5’9 31 goals LAST season
    Michael Cammalleri 5’9 287 NHL career goals

    Debrincat was on the first PK unit in Erie, a unit that was top 2 or 3 I believe. The quick stick he has on his shot he carries defensively as well.

    Southside…dont forget Martin St Louis. 5’8″ and 1033 points in 1134 games.

    St Louis 5’8 176
    Debrincat 5’7 170
    Gaudreau 5’9 157

    Now, the guys we’ve spoken about have proven something at the level that matters. Were just showing that size isnt a prerequisite of success. Whether or not he has success remains to be seen. From a size and game aspect he reminds me of St. Louis the most. He does play with a little bit of an edge.

    Plays no defense…yet was on the first 10k unit. Hmm.

    His biggest issue will be his strength and skating. Strength can be fixed. Skating can be worked on. But its a question mark

  • July 12, 2017 at 10:15 pm

    *pk…damn autocorrect.

  • July 13, 2017 at 8:31 am

    Debrincat is 6’0″ on skates … 6’4″ with the afro

  • July 14, 2017 at 7:33 am

    And Roy ‘Shrimp’ Worters was 5′ 3″ 130 and made the Hockey Hall of Fame (lol)
    May He Rest in Peace.
    D-Cat falls somewhere between Worters and Chara.

    Honestly though, can they be productive?, that’s all that matters–especially in this more recent NHL style.
