Sami Lepisto Is A Wasted Roster Spot

On Dec. 3, I wrote that it was time for the Blackhawks to cut ties with defenseman Sami Lepisto. In the wake of Dylan Olsen’s two games with the NHL club, this reality couldn’t be more painfully obvious.

Since that article was written, Lepisto has played a total of 26:31 in three NHL games, contributing four shots on goal, one hit and zero blocked shots.

    The Hawks are too slow now. Its very obvious. Thats why Edmonton keeps beating us. Montador is a 6th defensemen. Brunette and OD and Scott are scary slow out there. Wake up Bowman and Q. Our team against Vancouver in the playoffs last year was much much faster and we could have won that series and be challenging for a cup again if they left the roster alone and tried to develop our younger people to fill in. Now we need two major additions a top 6 forward and a top four defender. Then fill in the younger players from Rockford. Mayers was the only guy brought in that I like.

    Add Bickell to the list.

    Also the next time Bickell finishes a check this year will be the first. What a waste of talent on the ice………

    I know it was a big contract but I think we miss campbell more than anyone is willing to admit. I thought he played very well in game 7 against vancouver. What scares me is that I think they think Montador is good enough to be a fourth defenseman.

    Bickell is totally uninterested out there on the ice, he’s kane without the skill level…..
    Also we don’t have any type of defensive system, or if we do it breaks down quickly & the players start running around chasing the puck….. Did the hawks hire mike martz …..???? We need to get back to simple hockey…..
