Lends you to think something is going on with somebody. I don't really see a need for eight d-men otherwise. I'd rather have the extra forward, personally.

I'm a bit surprised they'd put Bollig on the 4th line rather than Hayes.
The three that are heading back to Rockford. Unfortunately, the three that I'd like to see stay.

That sucks ,,, He is ready for role and has looked good all preseason
Agree. And he's not as slow as people have made him out to be. That full ice rush for a goal against Pittsburgh, splitting the defense, was quite nice.

I would be very surprised if neither Morin nor Hayes made the team simply because of Hossa's uncertain condition.

The Hawks will probably carry 13 forwards (plus 8 d-men and 2 goalies) - so only two of those guys are heading back to Rockford - one of them will be the 13th forward. Odds are Pirri is Rockford bound so it's between Morin and Hayes.

There's also competition for the 8th d-man spot between Stanton and Kostka and Kostka probably has the advantage there.

Kostka will make this team because he can play forward in a pinch like Hendry and (scarily enough) Brookbank. Obviously, Kostka isn't an ideal fourth-line forward, but he is versatile. I think the extra forwards will be Hayes/Morin and Kostka and the extra defenseman will be Brookbank and Kostka.

There's no reason that Bollig should be on this team over one of Hayes or Morin. I like a few things he's done in the preseason, but his hockey IQ and talent level aren't very close at all to that of Jimmy and Jeremy.

Got no problems with the roster.

Sucks that it looks like Morin wont make it, but we arent going to stay healthy all year, he'll be back. Better for those kids to get top line ice in the AHL than limited mins here.

If I was handicapping #Blackhawks' roster, I'd say Kostka, Nordstrom, Hayes and Smith make the team.

IMO, Hayes is going to stay with Morin Piri Stanton going down.

Agreed, expect Stanton. I'll hold off on that because he did say he thought he made the team so there must have been a reason for that.

Morin will definitely be one of the first callups if he's sent down. Q probably likes him the most (after Smith) as far as the Rockford kids battling for a spot. Always gushes about his play ability.

And I find that pretty amazing since Kostka himself said he hasn't played forward in 20 years. (pretty much since he was 7 years old) But hey.. I guess that's as a "pinch" as you can get.

Stanton on waivers (per Bob McKenzie on twitter).

Bollig is the definition of a useless player that is easily replaceable. We have about 5 of him in the franchise/System

want to start with the last cuts like Morin & Pirri or go with Smith who is on the NHL roster? They all could play 4th line energy guy. Do I really have to come up with this?

Pirri in no way replicates what Bollig does. Also, whether you like it or not, fighting happens in the regular season. You need a guy that can answer the bell which Bollig does. Not sure there is a team in the league that carries 0 fighters.
