They also need a gritty winger who can score (Ruutu) and a 4/5 defensive D-man. Not trying to say any of the three is more important than another, they all need to be done fast.
Yes, we're paying a bit more than we'd like in some of these deals but this illustrates these guys are available to Stan if he wants them. It's his job to get them for the best price he can but he needs to get one.
I wouldn't be surprised if Salak was starting over Crawford by seasons end.
The dude can't even stay upright. If he could, he'd probably get the chance considering how awful Crawford has been for most of the year. The help is not here, it's playing for other teams waiting to be acquired.
Salak. Rockford's defense is terrible Tim Thomas would get sent to the ECHL if he was on that team. Salak playing in Chicago for 3 games wouldn't hurt at all. This teams offense should score 4 goals a game.
Montoya has a great record. I wish we could have him become a Hawk. It's possible since he'll never get the chance going up against Nabokov/DiPietro. But then again he's probably looking for a starter job, and chicago isnt the place.
