  1. Very nice surprise with this young man …happy for him and for the Hawks
    Maybe a nice addition in the future…

  2. I’m just dropping by to say
    I cannot wait to hear Gene Honda say
    “LANDON SLAGGERT!!!!” in the way only Gene Honda can….and the crowd goes wild.

    Carry on & cheers to you all

  3. I have watched parts of about 5 to 6 of his games and he was immediately noticeable and easy to find on the ice in a good way. He has a similar relentlessness that Hagel has. He will be part of the NHL roster for the Hawks in 2 years if things keep progressing.

  4. Just for your information…
    Louis Crevier the 7 rd choice last draft (number 188) Dman Right hand
    6’ 8 218 pounds turn 20 years old 3 weeks ago.could easily reach 235-245 pounds
    Is still playing hockey with Chicoutimi Saguenéens in playoff and had a nice regular season with 6 goals 14 pts in 26 games plus 9
    In playoff so far he has 1 goal 3 pts plus 2 in 6 games ….I know he is still young a plays in Junior but his coaches really like him very much
    I don’t say he will become a Hawks player in the future but iff he continues to grow he could be a surprise. It’s a long shot like all the draft players but I remember that big Buff was a huge part of the Hawks squad after being draft late .

  5. It seemed like Slaggert was an afterthought for Team USA at the IIHF tourney where he more or less made the team when other more prominent players declined the invitation – but he made the most of his opportunity and then carried that into his college season. He’s not the most talented player but I like the way he plays.

  6. Off topic but I wonder if the Hawks will get involved in the Jack Eichel sweepstakes that could very well happen this summer and if they did would they consider moving Dach to get Eichel

  7. Unless toews retires, I don’t see them in the Eichel sweepstakes. He makes $10 million a year for five more years. Toews is their $10 million center. You can’t really have two of those and have enough money left over to compete.

  8. Wrap don’t know if you heard Bowman and Colliton’s podcast after last game and exit interview. One thing they didn’t do was gove Lankinen a big endorsement at all, quite different from Bowman last week. Colliton said none of them took a step back and they were happy with them. Bowman said he be looking to add in areas where they can improve, either by trade, ufa signing and draft, left impression that could be one area he looks to add.

  9. Really like the progression Slaggert made this, hope keeps it going, could be nice Nhl player in few years.

  10. Ian – I had wondered if Freddie Andersen might be a fit in CHI – he’s UFA – not sure who else is available for goalies

  11. I hope they don’t burn their pick this year on a goalie. I know 2 are projected to go in the top 10 picks this year.

  12. I wish the Hawks were in a position to make a move for Eichel. All commentators say he is going to the Rangers if he gets moved.

  13. Wrap Grubauer, Mzarek, Raantta are ufas as well. Grubauer be a good one. Could also bring in a veteran backup for Lankinen like Rinne, Rask or even Fleury as VGK be looking to move his caphit likely. After acquiring Connelly though the taking a bad contract talk isn’t mentioned anymore, so may not be doing that again.

  14. TimW doubt they go for a goalie in first round, when asked about Commesso Bowman said he had a good first year in Ncaa and this year be big year for him as he will their go to guy. So i’m thinking he gets more of a look before going for a goalie high again, since he usually doesn’t like too normally.

  15. Thinking we are compliant at season’s opening and then we get Fluery for 3.5mil which is Shaw’s money that we can go over. Plus get something else from Vegas like our fifth back minimum. In the mean time Seattle takes deHaan and why don’t we sweeten it for them to take Seabs contract. How about throw in Strome for them to take Seabs $$.

  16. JR- Strome isn’t much of a sweetener, plus I doubt Seattle will have trouble reaching the cap floor anyway.

  17. FWIW Craig Button’s recent draft ranking has four D taking the top 4 spots – the next D man is Carson Lambos at #12 which is where the Hawks will likely pick

    There are a number of centres listed right around #12 including Chaz Lucius, Mason McTavish, Kent Johnson and Fedor Svechkov

  18. Lambos would be nice, but Kent Johnson is listed at 167 pounds so Stan might not be able to pass that up.

  19. point per game as a freshman and plays like Shaw Hagel Barratt this is what we need a few of these guys. Good to have them on the way.

  20. Yea not when we need two top pair Defensemen coming ufa wise and need to Seabs 7m and other players retire caphits to basically be a wash salary cap wise woth those players to cover two 5-10 m Defensemen caphits from ufa.

  21. Not sure why Lambos went from the five Defensemen being top 7 picks to him going 12-17 in mocks. Looks like Lomabos and those two big centers.

    Whoever is a top 3 Defensemen or top 6 player is who we need to draft.

    Were adding top pair Defensemen ufa wise or were not going to be a top 5 team again if we donot do that.
