It’s good to get Steeger back. Hopefully TvR is only a month or so away.
Line rushes at practice today were: 20-19-81, 10-91-88, 29-65-23, 13-16-28. Apparently TT to the press box. Not sure I see the wisdom in that but the good news is #23 is back.
TT will probably be back in Friday. They don’t want him sitting around for long, that’s for sure. If he’s not in the lineup more often than not, he’ll be in Rockford.
Do you think 23 is really recovered or will he be playing one-handed for the rest of the year?
Quenneville indicated after practice that he sees Teravainen as a top-9 player, and said “we’ll see” regarding Friday. I wouldn’t be shocked if he was back in the linup on Friday night.
That said, I agree that he needs reps. Thus the consideration of a potential deal coming from somewhere in the organization. Too many bodies in Chicago & Rockford. Something major? Doubt it. But dumping dead weight is very possible.
Kane-Richards-Steeger(need to separate 88-10)
Get some SIZE on DEF!!!!!!!!!!
Theres Tatanka roasts in the pressbox. That’s what Nordy ate to get stronger.
The difference between 86 and 42 on the 23man, for the 3wks to deadline, is .033
(based on 186 days).
