Hawks needs (early season edition)

I think its pretty evident that Shaw is a much better wing where he can just skate around and agitate than as a center. Bowman needs to go out and find a lockdown 3rd line center. If that center can hit a little bit, that'd be even better. This is much more attainable than a 2nd line center which we've needed the past several years (both in cost to obtain and cap hit). If he can obtain a player like that, then this roster really doesn't have many holes in it.

Saad-Toews-Hossa
Sharp-Bolland-Kane
Shaw-defensive center-stalberg
Frolik-Kruger-Carcillo

Thats a pretty intimidating front line. It even allows you to move Carcillo up to the top line if Saad falters and you can put Bickell on the 4th line.

Obviously another need is back up goalie, but I think it'll take Emery coming out and playing terrible in 2 more games before Bowman even considers that (or considers bringing Karlsson up).
