    Maybe Holland is taking time to figure out things?

    Thought that was a possibility so I just asked a simple question without making assumptions

    They think they already have enough depth in their organization at the goaltending position. There's only so much room for goalies within an organization.

    He was listed a lot as an example of why Bergevin/Lefebvre were good at drafting/development. Huh.

    It would be hilarious if Hawkey turns out better than all of them.

    Maybe but the idea is to keep the best. If they think Rodrigue is better than Hawkey, says a lot about the Oilers organization.

    We should get him back. And move one of Lindgren and McNiven.

    I have no clue who the prospects they're referring too...so i'm guessing this essentially makes Hawkey a free agent?

    Especially when he scored a couple goals with Colorado. Everyone lost it on Bergevin.

    That's what I think. But it won't be long till he signs somewhere. Not expecting it will be with us. But would have been neat...we keep him AND we added a 5th rounder...lol

    Not till August 15th, he's in the same boat as Koberstein but just much better at hockey.

    I don't get it, he's coming off a career year and was one of the best goalies in the NCAA again this year. He was a workhorse as only one goalie in the NCAA played more then him. He was 4th in gaa for goalies with more then 27 games played and 2 of 3 in front of him played in the considerably weaker WCHA conference and the other goalie was on the team that won the National Championship (in back to back years).

    I've always liked him a lot, he's clearly not as good as Primeau who is miles ahead of him if you compare them by their age 18 and 19 seasons as Hawkey was in his age 23 season this year. That said he has the size, plays a solid technical game but has had problems with inconsistency. When he gets hot look out. I got to think some team will take a flyer on him.

    Surely the right decision for his health and the rest of his life. The poor guy was very unlucky in that department.

    Not sure if there is much of a point. Assume CP and Lindgren are our starter and backup on the big club.

    Primeau and McNiven fight for starter/backup in the AHL.

    I can’t imagine Hawkey being interested in a 3rd string role, assuming he gets other offers.

    I would as he could be a very good ECHL starter but we don't have an ECHL team so we would be at their mercy for ice time. At worst I think he'll be a good AHLer at some point.

    He must have something lined up or else really banged up,sad if so. If not,could make some decent coin playing in Europe with less banging.
