Hawks Rookies are coming out of the gate strong. Only 2 games played so far but I ranked them in order of the most impresessive showings show far: 1.Pavel Vorobiev - 2 goals and an assist in the second game after going scoreless in game one. Was the Hawks best player on the ice tonight. Has been a pleasant surprise. 2.Brent Seabrook - 5 assists in two games, move over Crosby and Ovechkin, here is the next Great One!!!! (just kidding, obviously) but his overall play and poise have been solid so far. 3.Rene Bourque-Netted a goal in the opener and is 1-0-1. Big expectations for him from Hawk fans this year. Now it looks like he and Vorobiev are on equal footing and if Daze's injury is ongoing these two should both see significant minutes on the top 2 lines. 4.Duncan Keith-logging a ton of minutes, among the team leaders. Some hawk fans are really sold on him, Im skeptical of a defenseman who is this small though. Coach Yawney seems to love him though, so Im still a bit undecided on him. Played much better in Game 2 then Game 1 when he was atrocious. 5.Matt Ellison-Played on fourth line, a couple of hits but hasnt done much yet. Got some PP time at the point and was unimpressive there. 6.Cam Barker-Has not dressed yet and Im not sure if he will before being sent to minors. Seabrook and Keith appear to have locked up spots so Im not sure there is an opening for him. Too bad, I was at both games and wanted to see him in person.
