    should be an interesting game to watch and see how people perform. It doesn’t seem to be a surprise to see schmaltz and panik as wings since you could easily slot Toews in there as the center. The bottom six should be interesting to see since that there are some unknowns there in an nhl game and setting. It will be interesting to see how Fortin plays since he earned himself a contract. I wonder who will coach since isn’t coach Q with team Canada at the world?

    Poor Mark McNeill. Can’t crack the top 9 of a lineup of AHL and journeymen.

    It hadn’t occurred to me until last night’s game that Tootoo’s # is 22. That’s hilarious. I like him better than Bollig and Mashinter just for that.

    IMO Hinostroza has the best chance to make the team. The kid is aggressive and quick to the puck, very much like what I’ve seen of him. McNeil will never make it with the Hawks.
