This is all about giving the younger Toews a career in hockey. Let him play in the E for 3 or 4 years and see if he can get good enough to get interest from pro teams in Europe. If not, he gets a token call up to the Hawks for a game and calls a career. My theory anyway.
why pick on didomenico...theres a lot of other players that are not playing well.
Is it because of the versteeg trade?
He picks on DiDomenico because
A) He knows nothing about the player
B) He was part of the Versteeg trade
In truth, while DiDomenico may never play in the NHL he most definately has talent. You don't play on Team Canada at the World Juniors because you're bad.. but, I'm not going to go down this road again because it's pointless.
As far as the Toews' trade, I like it. Perhaps getting him on a team with his Bro can be added motivation to make it to the show.
DiDomenico has heart and work ethic in spades. He'll never give up so at worst he stays in Rockford and becomes captain someday and maybe gets into coaching with us. That's not worth Versteeg but it's worth something to have a guy like that in the organization, for his positive influence if nothing else. If we become overloaded with forward prospects then he'll go on his way.
