    Thanks Tab…as we keep discussing this week after week, it appears that the Hawks are very deep in developmental talent…all this list does is remind me that going after a 22 year old 2 way centre who is proficient at the dot is clearly the right thing to do…I would love to see all these kids get their chance in the pros, but when you consider how young and deep the NHL team is, and then how deep Rockford is, how many of these kids are even going to get a chance to play for the Hawks within the next 5 years??? Not many…

    One other comment…over the last couple of weeks I have watched Garrett Ross, from Saginaw, two times…and he really impresses me. He reminds me a lot of Shaw, as he is not overly large, but he plays big…he is a good skater…strong at both ends of the ice, tough as nails, and smart. He was playing centre in the games I watched and dominated at the circle. He might be someone that gets a long look next year as a 4th line player to start…very smart kid and tough!

    Great observation Brad regarding Ross. I’ve been saying it for months and I think this kid will be in Rockford by the end of the year. Check out this link of Shaw fighting Ross from 2009.

    Jimmy Hayes is playing very strong 2 way hockey in Rockford right now, and its paying off with a lot of production, as he has largely filled the void by the departure of all the players to the Hawks with a leadership role. I think that he would be a great choice for that 4th line winger role next to Kruger and Frolik…Bollig simply isn’t producing and Q isn’t trusting him with more than 5 minutes of ice time per game, which is hurting the 4 line flow when he’s in the lineup.

    It is hard to believe that Rockford is doing so poorly? They were tied for first place months ago and seem to wither every year . Maybe poor coaching?
    Grand Rapids which is Red Wings group always seem up like the Chicago Wolves .

    Hawks need to pull the trigger on the Colorado trade before he goes to the Red Wings Detroit and Philadelphia need a good center.

    Hawks better be ready tonight since San Jose is hungry
