Here are his stats in the SEL, although it doesn't show his league rankings:

He seems to do OK in the assist department, but what stands out to me is his +/-. I think that is what the Hawks are hoping for --- him to take over #3 C so Bolland can move up to #2. I think he has a good chance to do it, it is just a matter of if its this year or next year, or somewhere inbetween.

6th in assists but not in the top 10 in points in the league.

How did his assist numbers look over that same period of time?
If he ends up with 50 assists on the Hawks 3rd line they are going to win the Stanley Cup. Last year only 2 Hawks got over 40 assists, Toews and Kane.

If he ends up with 50 assists Toews Bolland and Sharp are all going to be missing big chunks of time.

Left wing, too. I like him better at right wing.

Why do people still ask, or think that certain players won't play top 6 or bottom 6?

The only players guaranteed to be in the Top 6 are Toews, Kane, Sharp, and Hossa. Probably almost everyone else will see time with those 4.

We're talking about Q here.

When I hear "any chance he plays in the top 6" I assume that means for a large chunk of time(like more than half the season). If somebody asks "is there any chance stalberg plays in the top 6", would you respond "yea, he'll play there for 5 minutes a night a little bit"? Or would you say "no, he won't be in the top 6"?

With Q he will see some time there (Everyone seems too)

More likely he only see's extensive or significant top 6 time in event of injury to Hossa (Very possible)

Krüger will never be a goal scorer. I see him with 20 goals a season at best. He will become a good Two Way Center that is good on the PK, PP and ES. He just isn't a finisher.


and I want Frolik to become the type Versteeg was. Our 3rd Line RW for all year long

I think thats what Bowman sees him as.

Frolik will have a full season with the Hawks, and with good talent around him, we should see one of his better seasons IMO

Kruger is a very unique type of player. When he reaches his prime, he'll probably be between 12-15 goals but with 30+ assists.

Frolik could make the second line for stretches this year.
