Saad and Leddy are other obvious answers, but I would really like to see Ben Smith come up and stick this year. He's a good plug-in player almost anywhere in the lineup, and he's a fantastic person off the ice. It'd be great to see him succeed with the big club.
Lastly, I want to see if Joe Lavin gets called up, or if they're putting him on the fast track for Rockford's #1 defenseman who can never quite crack the Hawks roster, like Connelly and Stanton before him.
I agree about ben smith. I really hope he is getting over his injury troubles. Really set him back. But he is a solid plug-in to any line. Both him and Shaw might really surprise this year. Both aren't the biggest, but are ultra-competitive with the will and skill to really succeed.
