Andrew Ladd

http://chicagosports.chicagotribune....,3741233.story


The Hawks agreed to terms with three of their restricted free agents Tuesday: forwards Adam Burish and Dustin Byfuglien; and defenseman James Wisniewski. General manager Dale Tallon said the Hawks are in negotiations with another of their unrestricted free agents, winger Andrew Ladd.

if Ladd is an ufa, hed give us much needed size, and would be worth taking a risk on.

I don't think he'd be even close to a UFA

..It says they are in negotiations with him, he will be signed long before July 1st most likely. And that has to be a typo, hes 22...he's not going to be a UFA.

yeah, you can tell the way it's worded that the writer accidentally slipped the "un" in there.

I think Ladd has a shot to be a darn good power forward.

He's 22 and has shown flashes of great plays, but has yet to put it all together.

Having said that, at worst he's a 10-15 goal, third line player. If he developes, possibly Ryan Malone during his better years.

If he a potential superstar? No, but he's shown he at least belongs and his upside is a core player who plays a power game. Those are always in demand, as Malone will prove this summer.

I wanted Ladd form the get go. oer Montoya. As it was a waste of a draft, cause all HYR got back was Sjostrom,really.

So if an offer sheet was made for like 1-1.5,maybe 2,then I would be all for it, if not.Oh well.

Yes that is a typo!

Hawks are reportedly close to a deal.

Ladd played great and ended season on our 3rd line were he had chemistry with Dave Bolland his likely 3rd line partner again this upcoming season. He is a good young LW with Byfuglien gives us 2 of the top up and coming LW's in the game. I see him as being a 25-30 goal threat. He played great after his trade from Hurricanes.

Byfuglien, Ladd, Kane, Toews, Bolland, Sharp, Havlat (When healthy), Keith, Seabrook, Wisniewski and Barker all in mid 20's to late teens. Hawks are going to contend for cup next year. I believe in this team. We were the only team to outplay Detroit. We were 5-3 vs them and were 1st team in almost 2 decades to win 5 reg season games vs Red Wings.

ive always been HUGE on Ladd. I think hes got solid 3rd liner written all over him. IMHO hes a much bigger, and better version of Callahan.

Of course Cally was taken in the 4th round, and Ladd was taken 4th overall...

well the list that was shown on the Rangers special thing was 3. Ladd and 4. Montoya.

moving from 6 to 4 would have cost a second rounder

I hope so. You guys deserve some good hockey out there after being **** on for so long by Wirtz. Always found the Hawks an easy team to root for and it looks like your team is finally having a renaissance. Enjoy it.

Andrew Ladd is an RFA not an UFA. I'd rather get an UFA than trade draft picks

I still think Ladd has some untapped potential. At worst he's a third liner, but i really wouldn't be surprised to see him as more.

He's a young power forward who is only starting to put things together.
