Hypothetically he grows 6 inches, adds 40 lbs and becomes the next Lindros for a decade until Steven Johns - who becomes the next Stevens - accidentally concusses him in practice, ending our streak of eleven straight Stanley Cups.

If TT pans out then it is likely we see Hossa drop to 3rd line defensive/offensive role (Ala Havlat in 08-09)

Hossa isn't getting any younger and eventually will not be top line winger with team

In an ideal world Mark McNeill makes impact as a poor mans getzlaf and slots into #2 C spot longterm

Saad-Toews-Kane
Sharp-McNeill-TT
Hayes-Danault-Hossa

We will just have to see what happens but it is too early to make plans on potential of players who may or may not pan out
Hossa is top 6 at least for another 2 years. True eventually a 3rd liner, but it would take a really bad injury for him to digress to the 3rd line. TT needs a year in Rockford on the top line... Maybe just 30 games in Rockford. Remember guys like Saad, Morin, Pirri, Danault, McNeill all those guys can be a PPG guy in juniors and end up a .50 PPG player in the AHL. If TT is averaging .60 PPG in Rockford after 30 games he should be on the NHL roster or be given a call up at that point.

It is never stupid to send someone 21 years old to the AHL

I thought we were allowed to use the unlikely hypothetical of TT being ready for the NHL next season and making the Hawk's roster. I didn't know we could also use the astronomically unlikely hypothetical that Sharp would be allowed to play center.

In that case I'll fill out the rest of M. Farms lineup:

Saad-Toews-Kane
TT-Sharp-Hossa
Bickell-Bolland-Stalberg
Carcillo-Kruger-Shaw

TT is still 18. He was at the very young end of his draft. He won't turn 19 until September.

I wouldn't be surprised if TT spends one more year in Finland and then starts the 2014/15 season in Rockford when he will just have turned 20 on 9/11/2014.

right. 19 year olds can't play in AHL. Well those under Canadian contract.

He's not a kid dominating other kids. He's a teenager playing a scoring role against grown men. I have no problem with him spending a few years refining his game against men in what is physically the closest league to the North American game in Europe.

Saad can play on any line, though in the top 9 is preferable. As for TT - I think the Hawks will let him develop some more. Danault is the guy that will probably make the jump next.

ok. I looked at his stat lines for Jokereit and he has nice stats. His numbers were 12G 16A 28PTS in 41GP.... One more year in the SEL and I think he cracks the Blackhawks roster.

I don't think his SEL stats would be all that much different in Rockford. I wouldn't mind seeing Jokereit & Rockford play. The winner of the SEL playing the AHL Champion would be interesting. It would be fun for the fans.

The SEL is a different league than TT is in, but yeah the point remains.

He's a much better LW from what I've seen and read. Ideally he should be playing with a big body forward with some grit. (McNeil, Hayes, etc. possibly in the future) or a forward currently who can finish (Sharp, Hossa, etc.) Could put him in a Versteeg type role to start off (though he's probably a rich man's version IMO, though I never thought Kris would turn out to be as good as he is now, but I'm very high on TT) and just let him be the main playmaker on a line. (which Ebony suggested)

Please don't try to put TT into a C role he isn't made for, we all saw how that played out last year with Kane and it would the same thing with TT.

If TT is ready for top 6 min next year then maybe Sharp or Hossa could be moved to clear space and get the #2 C everyone is clamoring for.

If he is ready and that good to start next season, he plays in the Top6 with Saad on the 3rd line. Saad can hold his own on that line, I doubt TT is suited for this role in Qs system. Having one line with Kane and one with Kane 2.0 would be perfect
