Blackhawks Recall Three From Rockford

On Tuesday morning, the Blackhawks recalled Jakub Galvas, Josiah Slavin and Arvid Soderblom from Rockford and sent Collin Delia to the IceHogs.

The moves are intriguing because there is no longer a taxi squad; that ended after the all-star break.

Obviously the Blackhawks could use the depth, but carrying extra bodies impacts their cap space as well. We’ll see if/when these guys are used.

    Could be they want a full roster to go to Edmonton, recalling somebody after they got there be harder. Hopefully see a couple of them get in lineup but could be just insurance too.

    Does it really matter poor roster poor prospects I’m sure we will sign the worst possible choice for gm- president forgot one thing poor ownership no one has a clue next poor fanbase derservely so and mediocre announcers in my opinion were at rock bottom!

    all teams need four lines and three defensive pairings. i would like to see hagel-slavin-dach skating as the third line tomorrow. a glimpse of what the future may bring when the team is ready to compete. hagel is not a dangerous enough scorer to project to top six and third line winger is what dach is bringing to the game these days. also see what kurashev-lafferty-entwhistle look like as the fourth line.

    Are these moves made to appear that the “intern” GM is doing something that warrants him getting the job??

    After that outburst by the Narcissist I really don’t care who they call up from the Hogs ! That guy needs to put on a pair of skates and go for a bag skate at midnight on the Chicago river ! After being a fan since 1957 I really don’t give a rats ass ! This last month has been a total Disappointment and I’m sure there are thousands of fans that have the same thoughts ! At 73 I’m going for a skate with my grandsons here in Ontario and also with a couple of guys that played with the Hawks in the 70’s ! This whole mess is such a fiasco , POPS 4

    Soderblom and Galvas– YES!

    I like both of them… Soderblom- needs to get his feet wet– perfect time

    Slavin and Galvas are better in both effort and speed- than what Hawks have been skating most of the year.

    Galvas- makes Hawks play faster- in my short views of him. Might be the PMD- the Hawks were attempting to draft last few years- to no avail… see Joker/Boqvist/Forsling/etc.

    Stillman, Khaira and lankinen still on injured reserve. Lankinen and Reese Johnson skating now and aren’t far away.
    Tyler Johnson skating but quite away from being cleared for contact.

    Connelly and Gus on the outside with the practice lines today.

    Mrfenn92, T. Johnson was cleared for contact today and King said he is expected to return late Feb. or early March. Toews working but not on ice yet.

    Perfect thanks for the update

    5 candidates interviewed for the G-M job, I would imagine some second interviews taking place.
    Hopefully Wirtz and Faulkner will have their guy soon. This trade deadline will be real important in terms of maximizing the return for Fleury(if he agrees to be traded), deHaan, perhaps others.
    I sure hope they don’t just wing it, the weekend of March 20-th with the deadline on the 21st.

    Interesting the Hawks playing the Oilers. Oilers lost last night 4-0, to a good team, but 3 of the 4 goals we’re questionable. Also Fleury looks a bit off and at 37 another team could look at his play as either he’s tired of playing on such a poor team or he’s 37 and looks tired. So if he wants to move the next couple weeks is important.

    The Oilers do need another option, at least as a safety valve.

    Hope this does not get blocked…….

    Rocky Wirtz.

    Over the last three years, many of us have said he has lost his edge as he sat back and watched Stan Bowman drive the team over a cliff.

    His outburst the other week in the Town Hall proved that beyond a shadow of a doubt.

    Do not disagree with what he said, but hugely disagree with how he said it.
    Surely there was a way more emblematic of solid leadership…..a solid leadership he no longer possesses.

    Team is now at rock bottom (bad pun).
    Similar to 2006.

    Complete teardown needed from top boss (R/ Wirtz) to lousiest defensemen (#56).

  • February 9, 2022 at 8:38 am

    @perimeter player
    first off- rocky is NOT going anywhere. could have he handle it a different way; yes. was this outburst because they found out another case in rockford??
    leaders need to move forward and not dwell on the past; that said he could of use different words and K.I.S.S to reporters.

    Wirtz family is not going anywhere. just like the yankees Steinbrenner.

    correct me if i am wrong but 2006 wasnt the low; years 1999-2006

  • February 9, 2022 at 8:40 am

    If Fleury says he doesn’t want to move his family again and nixes a trade, but wants to play another year. With the possibility Lankinen is drawing interest, would moving Lankinen and signing Fleury to another year with a Soderblom tandem next year be an option?
    Also by end of next year Commesso’s arrival would be getting close as well if he continues his current development. Obviously getting the return for Fleury be first choice, not a given to happen though.

    PP, just an observation and not disagreeing with your position. For better or worse I don’t see a full tear down happening on or off the ice. Don’t see the owners going anywhere, a new GM with 2 or 3 key manager types under him to run the organization. A new coach to me seems more than likely with his own assistants. On the ice, the D and Goaltending for the future likely remains status quo for now without too many major changes, save for a few bodies moved who no longer are looked at as the future. Forwards likely have the biggest turnover in next couple of years. May only be handful of current group still around in a couple of years. This tdl and off season will say alot about that and where things are headed.

  • February 9, 2022 at 9:10 am

    Fleury has a list why would you keep him and move lanks That’s just not smart we need all the assets we can get by the time this team is good the cat will be close to 30 your probably right I’m sure they will screw it up that’s the Chicago way save your money stay at home make ownership make changes got to hit them in the wallet

  • February 9, 2022 at 9:21 am

    @ ian

    fleury’s best value to the hawks is as a trading chip for a draft asset this year. i don’t believe in one goalie mentoring for another. that is what the goalie coach is for. the team went nowhere this year with fleury taking playing time away from lankinen and lankinen has wasted a year of his career. he should have played 55 games this year and the hawks should have a much better idea of what value he is going forward than they do now.

    with fleury ….. same shit team. same no playoffs result. fleury won games the hawks should not have won and weakened the draft position this year. without the tdl draft pick from trading fleury he will be a total waste of a signing.

  • February 9, 2022 at 9:51 am

    The absolute WORST scenario for me is to have Fleury back next season. I’m not sure there is a way I could be laughing harder than if Fleury is back. It’s already been one of the biggest setbacks to this team having him play the amount of games he has played.

    We need at least 3 forwards, at least 3 new Dmen and a real coach before we can entertaining wasting another year of growth or at least player interviews at the goalie position. Fleury does not make us a Stanley Cup competitive team next year.

    We need to get real about how bad this team is.

    Tear it down. The only veterans on this team next year who should NOT be on this team with 1 year on contract is Seth Jones, and trade him if you can get value. Maybe one of Murphy or McCabe, and I can live with them both being moved. Turn the roster over to growth only.

    SS and HAWKS29, i am not disagreeing with you, just what i expect may happen from what i hear and see happening. As far Fleury goes, if you move Lankinen then you still need another goalie is needed to tandem with him until Commesso is ready, wasn’t intending on him playing the amount he did this year but if he did then that wouldn’t be a good idea. SS likely will at least be 2 or 3 spots for youngsters to play regularly next season plus injury callups which may or may not be significant.

    Dollar Bill can you post that link for the hockey games again. Thank you.

  • February 9, 2022 at 8:24 pm

    Marchand had just 6 games suspension…10 games would be perfect I think ..offense num 2 this year and 8 since he start. Very often they didn’t penalize him .
    Fleury is gone before year ends 90% sure.
