If Bickell keeps up the physical play, his contract is cap friendly besides being the only big body forward the Hawks have who can take a regular shift.

What? Yeah there is a need to throw him in there. If we are playing a skilled team we can keep him out. If we play St. Louis or physical teams I want Carcillo, Mayers, Bickell & maybe even Bollig on the ice.

As a coach you don't just keep the bottom six the same. You play those lines according to the opponent.

Overall, you have the right idea not messing with what works. I don't think you can be that rigid and just sit Carcillo.


Guys need days off. I'm ok with a rotation of these players sitting one out of every four or five games. Bickell, Bollig, Carcillo, Mayers, Kruger, Frolik, Brookbank

Guys that I would be ok sitting one game every 8-10 games: Saad, Stalberg, Bolland, Rozsival

Changes are going to be made. Only guys that should not get days off are Toews, Kane, Sharp, Hossa... Keith, Seabrook, Hjalmarsson, Leddy & Oduya

Bickell, Frolik, Kruger, and Shaw should not miss a game in the bottom-6, for varying reasons (playing well, integral role on the PK, etc.).

Replacing Bollig, I wouldn't have an issue with. And Mayers seems to be getting games off too anyway (didn't consider that when posting in here earlier).

You're not going to see Q giving these players days off (at least, not until a specific seed is clinched), and for good reason. Most of them probably don't go to many practices as it is - a general characteristic of these shortened seasons.

The team will be 100% fine without Frolik in the line-up.

Uh, okay. There's no reason to take out half of your best penalty-killing duo just so you can give Carcillo icetime.

yep. Carcillo would get Bollig/Mayers Spot for now. Easy decision to make

We have other players that can do what Frolik does on the PK, he isn't that special.

Carcillo adds what we lack, Frolik adds nothing that we lack.

Frolik adds nothing that we lack because we don't lack it because Frolik is in the lineup.

It's pretty obvious that Carcillo plays for Bollig/Mayers when he comes back. The other suggestions in this thread are idiotic.

Without Frolik on the PK, it would be worse. A 4th liner playing on the PK and is a ice time leader on PK on the best PK in the league. He offers nothing?

Remember the time we had Bickell with Frolik and Bolland as the 3rd line?

I'd like our bottom 6 with
Carcillo - Shaw - Stalberg
Bickell - Krüger - Frolik


our 4th line would be a 3rd line on most other teams..

PK wouldn't be worse, Saad, or Shaw could do what Frolik does.

If Saad or Shaw do what Frolik does, then that means they are more winded while playing on their respective lines.

if they would do what Frolik does, why aren't they playing on the PK behind Krüger /Frolik?

Because they don't need to...you won't convince me that other players can't do what Frolik does.

Reading all this Blah player can do what he does stuff gave me a headache. Carrillo replaces Mayers. Obviously things are going well so there is no reason to shake anything up until needed

As said, Carbomb should switch out Mayers/Bollig. No need to take out Frolik when he's playing so well with Kruger.

The beautiful thing is, is that the Hawks have plenty of depth up front in case of injury. No doubt Carcillo will fill in on the 4th line but can be used on any line when an injury occurs, flu bug, etc. or if a player needs a one game rest.

That's because you don't watch the game, you just read the score sheets. Saad had been excellent.

Carcillo is practicing again. Shouldn't be too much longer.

Top line minutes, top line limates, no hits, no blocks.. 13 games more than Carcillo- 1 more point.. Can he draw some penalties? Yes he can, apart of this he is invisible...Yes I have been watching games..Got centre ice..

Calling him "invisible" in its own right makes it rather obvious that you either don't actually have CI or have watched only a handful of games.

"Overrated," anyway, implies Hawk fans are lauding Saad to some high degree he doesn't deserve. They really aren't. He's a good player who has fit in well with Toews and Hossa on the first line, and has been consistently improving every game. If that's "overrated," then we need to have this discussion about every single player in the league.
