We still have the cap space for another nice pickup for the forward group.
If the Hawks are fortunate enough to win the Gleason sweepstakes, I hope Hawk fans aren't expecting too much from Gleason. He's not a GREAT defenseman. He's a decent 2nd pairing guy - which is what the Hawks need. The other thing is IMO it will be Leddy playing with Montador on the 3rd pairing - not Hjalmarsson. Leddy is the 20 year old rookie that needs to play less than 20 mins per game against the opponents 3rd/4th lines. That said - I believe Leddy has the potential to be a premier PMD - he's just not ready to handle a heavy load in the defensive end yet.
I'm actually really happy with the acquisition of Brendan Morrison. They can Bolland up to the second line to center it and Morrison can center the third line. Be a calming yet influential presence on two highly energetic rookies.
I think center is done for Chicago. I HOPE wing is not, ie Ruutu or someone of that type.
It depends on how Bolland and Morrison do. Bolland has proved recently he can pull his wait offensively in the top-nine, now we need to hope he can be a top-six producer if they decide to move him up a line. We also need to hope Morrison does a good job.
If we get a winger, I'm guessing that one of Frolik and Bickell get dealt and one of Shaw and Hayes get sent back down.
