The Hawks need someone with NHL experience to fill a spot on the 3rd or 4th line so we can bump someone up. I dont like the of a Ladd/Bolland/Skille 3rd line. All 3 have alot of potential and are NHL ready but you just cant have a line like that. They are NHL ready but not ready enough for their own line. Bolland and Skille have alot to learn about the NHL.

I think the Hawks should move Hajamarsson up to forward IMO. He likes to go deep into the offensive zone anyways and play in the corners but he cant do much because he has to get back. Hes offensive minded enough to convert to forward. People said I was crazy when I said the Hawks should move Buff to forward as well 18 months ago. At that time people were questioning him if hes even a viable NHL prospect. I think Hajamarsson could really help up front to some degree but I think a better option would be to make a trade or sign someone cheap that has NHL experience to fill a role on one of those two lines.

I think Khabby will gain some value once the season starts and a club or two runs into goalie problems (LA, Ottawa). I think then Dale will be willing to move Khabby and address our needs if the Hawks just arent cutting it as far as experience and depth.

Albeit, I think we should have signed Jason Williams and traded Lang 3 months ago. I think the Hawks would be in a better position now if we had done that. We could have gotten a 2nd in the 08 draft for Lang and be under cap right now but still have Williams.
