Dale Tallon and Rick Dudley were at yesterday's Rangers-Flyers game but they also attended the Caps-Canes in DC last night
The Chicago Blackhawks' two top hockey executives -- general manager Dale Tallon and assistant GM Rick Dudley -- scouted Saturday's game, fueling speculation that the Hawks are interested in one of Carolina's extra defensemen
If we aren't planning on playing any kids on the 4th line, I think Holmqvist might be a upgrade over Ward and Hall there.
I would hope the 4th line is going to be Hollweg - Betts - Ortmeyer and that Cullen moves down to 3rd (where he belongs) with say Hossa and Dawes (Krog/Ibister/Callahan/Hall/Ward/ev trade/ev other callup are all viable options here though) on the wings - if the Rangers deal for a nr 1/ nr Center which they must be seriously contemplating doing. Or bringing back Immonen to line 2. Or trying Dubinsky in the second line slot...
Assets Plays well at both ends of the ice. Is capable of holding onto the puck for prolonged stretches, since he has terrific reach. Adds plenty of versatility to any roster.
Flaws Is somewhat soft for a 6-3 forward, which hurts his overall NHL performance. Needs to go to the net with greater frequency to score more goals.
Career potential Third line forward.
hed fit well with the Rangers, another big player who is soft maybe Holmqvist and Lapointe for Hall and Malik. That is what id do.
Another former First round pick who has not done anything. Well we got 2 of them so far, Marcel Hossa, Jason Ward, oh yea and we had Rico Fata in the past. Yep Holmqvist would fit well here.
