Tip of the cap to Razor if this is the last game he played in a Hawks sweater.

Good to see, he had struggled the last few games imo.

Saad seemed ahead of the play at times tonight. I can't tell if he needs to learn how to finesse certain passes or if everyone else needs to get on his level.

I'm in favor of starting the entire Icehogs team for both games this weekend.

saad sometimes chases the game, instead of letting the game come to him, if that makes sense.

it`s pretty much my only gripe against the kid, who has really succeeded any expectations i had for him at the start of the season.

Morin, Smith, J.Hayes, Pirri, Stanton, Clendening, Montador, Hutton, McNeill and Danault were going to be recalled as black aces no matter what. Chicago just had to wait for them to be eliminated to not count as recalls. Whether any of them play or not, remains to be seen. Definitely could see guys getting the final game off, against St. Louis.

You sure those will be guys?

Wouldn't surprise me to see Dahlbeck up instead of Stanton ,, Dahlbeck was solid (As was Stanton) in the Rock

And I think Karlsson makes more sense then Hutton given Karlsson's NHL experience (Similar to Toiv getting nod in 2010 not Crawford)

I'm positive each of those guys will come up. I don't think there's a limit to the amount of black aces you can have, but arguments could be made for Dahlbeck, Olsen and Sauve.

We know Hutton's going to be among them, he's already on the team and they didn't send him down when Emery came back.

I thought LeBlanc looked very good in the 3rd period. As the game went along, he definitely got better. That's all you can ask for. Definitely worth a look for next year.

Handzus should play 2C until Bolland is back.Had 3 assists, 69% FO and plusminus +3 tonight, I think he's with winning FO's and good passes better support for Sharp/Kane as defensive center Kruger was.

I consider him part of the core. If somehow we needed to find money to keep him, I'd part with Sharp, Bolland, and Seabrook before I would Leddy. He's gonna be one of the best PMD's in the league for many years to come.

I would prefer Handzus over Bolland on 2nd line as far as I'm concerned...Bolland belongs on 3rd line in playoffs.

Kinda funny how after the 1st period, LeBlah was hot garbage.. now, everyone's like, "Yeah, I could see him as the 2nd line centre next year".

Just goes to show, you can't make outlandish comments about a player based on a play, period, game, or bad stretch. To be fair, that applies to their good moments as well. I don't think we have to worry about LeBlanc though. He looks like a player for us, if not next year, then sometime in the near-future.

That pass he made to Kane was sick. A quick snap of the wrists and that puck was right on the money, smoothly on the ice to boot. That was my highlight of the night right there.

Glad I'm not alone. I counted three instances where, I think, if he had taken a little off his feed it would have led to a prime scoring chance.

Again, extrapolating where this kid ends up production wise is fun to think about.

OT: What kind of man thinks to bite another man, in any circumstance? Suarez is a strange little man.

This just puts an even bigger target on their backs, but the Hawks had a good season.

As it stands now I really don't want to face any of the teams currently vying for the 8th seed.
