Chicago has all North American prospects. If we add Petterson, Sivenbaker, and Runblad, this is alot closer
A lot of Chicago's other top guys aren't at this tournament either. Kruger is back with his SEL team and guys like Olsen, Johns, Holl and the Hayes bros can't play without losing their NCAA eligibility. Some of the more experienced prospects such as Vishnevskiy and Skille aren't here either.
Richards, and to a lesser extent the defense, laid an egg in the first period against Toronto and never managed to recover. Hopefully Simpson will get the start today as he can't be much worse than Richards was yesterday. The Hawks also need to stop taking stupid penalties, they took about 10 yesterday and gave up 3 PP goals in the process.
