    Good plug-n-play tough nose player with a little offensive ability. He and Entwistle had a little chemistry together when they both had their cup of coffee. Hopefully they parlay that in Rockford this season and maybe earn a spot on the Hawks at some point.

    I like Hardman in a 4th line role and he’s got a offense to his game

    He should get some NHL games this year again and maybe a regular spot by next year

    They were high on him when they signed him, so hopefully he works out, as 2nd or 3rd line power forward preferably. Definitely can bring a needed element to the roster.

    Hardman- Of all the “auditions” at year end- he stood out to me.
    Size, Instinct, never seemed out of position, finished when given the chance.
    Went to the dirty areas.

    The fact that he played with some really good players in College and scored – bodes well for him- shows he can anticipate and thinks the game at a high level.

    I wouldn’t mind if the Hawks give him a lot more than a few games.
    Especially if Strome/Carpenter are moved.

    Can’t complain about this signing at all. Pretty big guy with some net presence and some good hands. Young and can develop, and played some nice games toward the end of last season. Nice young player at a nice price who has some upside.
