    Let’s see if he actually gets to play this time around???

    Wouldn’t mind for a look…

    29/Moose/56 (56 looked way better on RW)
    65/16/Garbutt (this has way more O upside w/o Desi)

    Apparently Bowman agreed w/ my assessment from a couple of hours ago.

    Shocker….Wall is excited.

    A rundown of the forward call ups this year. Baun, Hartman, Kero,Hinostroza,and Mashinter.

    All those guys in Ernie’s rundown are just that, “guys”. And so is RassMoose. We should anticipate trade(-s), and probably a bold one (or more). Aside from the franchise untouchables – 2, 4, 7, 19, 88 – anyone could go. Debate of course ensues on who is untouchable

    72 can’t move.

    Kero just got Q’d. And it’s a GOOD thing. Kero definitely has growing to do as a player, even if he might be “just a guy.” He is clearly heir apparent to Kruger. So head down to Rockford with your chin up Tanner…go work on getting better. You will be back soon enough. Fans of Michigan Tech hockey across the globe are rooting for you.

    Rufus- what happened to your guy Danault as Kruger’s Heir???

    Rolling the good youngsters is a good thing and there’s plenty of them.

    I don’t like this one, though….it’s going to fuck up the lines…again.
    3 Centers available… again. It means Bickell-Shaw-Dano as the ‘third’ line or some shit like that.

    Even if I don’t like it I more than understand it. The Hawks are a meritocracy and you have to prove Coach Q you’re always on your toes.

    RasMoose, bitches.

    Were Moose and Bickell playing on the same line in Rockford?

    Maybe there was some chemistry that SB and Q are trying to exploit.

    DTPuck… went to one game with Bickell on farm… yes- MOOSE played w/ Bickell…

    In fact- I commented (here I think) -that Moose had a good game and fed the puck thru crease a couple times… But Bickell wasn’t fast enough to get there once, and kind of muffed the other one…

    I want to see Moose get a couple of games- just to see how he measures up in NHL…

    BUT- with no real practice… I don’t see Moose in line-up yet…. we will see

    Dum dum- Rasmussen is a center. So youd have Toews,Anisimov, Rasmussen, Kruger. Keep that 4th line for a couple games and put Bickell and Shaw with Rasmussen. Last game Kero played 7 minutes with only a couple shifts in the 3rd so its not like they had continuity at center anyway.

    Ernie – is he ? I thought he is a wing. My bad. That makes more sense.
