Blackhawks Sign Providence College Netminder Jaxson Stauber

The Blackhawks started Wednesday with one goaltender on the payroll next season. Now, they have two.

    What about that Minnesota State goalie? Has he been drafted? He is a local boy from I think from Hinsdale. The two knocks on him are his size and he plays for a really good team.

    Toot70 Dryden Mackay, his size is holding him back. Only 5’11 and 175 lbs. Nhl teams like the bigger goalies.
    Ben Meyers a free agent from University of Minnesota looks interesting, wonder if they try to sign him.

    He looks solid and quick in the few videos that I saw. Covers alot of the net. Off topic,the Captain continued with his complaining about the trade deadline stating that he now could envision himself playing elsewhere. As Wild Bill said, Well,BYE.

    With what Toews brings to the game these days he would be better served to shut up and try to earn that outrageous salary. Has really tarnished his reputation with all the whinnying he does.

    Ian, The size is what I was indicating also he only faces an average of 16 shots a game. The kid from Q.U. seems to have great numbers, but I have never been impressed with Eastern college teams. The last great goalie from the east was Cornel’s Dryden.
    Another thing that makes me wonder is all this talk about draft picks. Look at Michigan they have count them 13 drafted players, you only suit 20 and they have trouble against teams with zero drafted players.
    I can not figure Strome out, is he plying to be picked up by the Hawks or another team?
    Finally, KD #77 is a bust! What were his FO numbers in the miners, he should have been eating them up.
    My college coach was asked about why his teams FO’s were low and his answer was consideration, something really hard to teach.
