Is Babchuk ever going to be recalled?

I dont know how he is playing in Norfolk but he was supposed to be an easy top 6 this year as per experts...

Has Seabrook stolen his space or has he regressed this year (again )?

Any report on his play so far in the A?

Aucoin pulled his hamstring again. If hes expectedout for awhile then h emight be recalled immediatly. Our top 6 is set and Simpson is our 7th so unless someone goes down with an injury no defenseman will be recalled.

If Aucoin is out Id prefer to dress Babchuck over Simpson who is very limiited as a player.

EDIT:He was just called up this morning due to Aucoin's groin injury.

He is scheduled to be in the lineup and paired with Cullimore who he was paired with in the preseason, barring a last minute recovery by the injured Aucoin (pulled groin) which would land him on the bench.

Rangers fan here, I thought Babchuk played very well. He was a shadow on our forwards all night. Duncan Keith was better, but that's because he's a better skater imo. Babchuk didn't get into the game offensively really but you can't expect the world from the kid in his first game up. IMO he looked solid.

Chicago fans would have better insight as to the team workings itself though.

THe "D" that will lead us to the Promised Land is now almost there---add Barker next year and watch out NHL!


Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook as rookies have outshone the "vets" and have already become leaders from the back-end playing tons of minutes..now Babchuk and Barinka get their chance...If they excel as the first 2 have then they ought to package up Aucoin and Cullimore and deal them as they have underwhelmed for the big $$$ the Hawks are paying them..If the kids shine better,so be it! The vet Spacek is ok and so is the "young vet" Vandermeer=that's enough "older example" for the 4 kids ..and Barker's still to come next year! AWESOME!

Barinka doesn't look that great out there. Babchuk is a little green (and has a bad tendency to hiss the net by three feet), but he's been playing pretty good defense.

Barinka was injured in last night's game. Todd Simpson will probably be able to play tonight in his place.

Cullimore is doing pretty good for the Hawks I dont see why he wants to trade him. ANyone who thinks we should go with 6 dmen in their first few seasons is spending too much time on message boards.

When we become a playoff team, Aucoin and Cullimore will be key members of the defense.

I'd rather have him out there than Todd Simpson, but he's not ahead of Aucion, Seabrook, Keith, Spacek, Vandermeer, or Cullimore. He's our 7th dman right now, in my opinion.

Babchuk has been sent back down to Norfolk.

I thought he deserved a little better than this..

I was surprised by this too, but I believe Cullimore comes off of the IR tommorow, so they had to make room (though I don't see why we didn't send down Barinka instead)
