Word out of Chicago is that the Hawks are looking for a scoring RW to take the pressure off Sakic and Tanguay and provide some punch from the right side. "We're in close discussion with a GM right now and something should be announced within the next couple of days. We wanted Allfie but they want just a little too much out there. We think we have a suitable match and a player that can help us for years to come. Expect to read a press release in the next couple of days pending the anouncement", said GM Dryden Lewis. What the Hawks have up their sleeve could be anyones guess but they need to do something real fast if they want to make a move for a playoff spot. With almost half the season gone so far and just a couple spots and points out of the playoffs a move that could push them in has to be made. So far the defence has been improved but the offence hasn't made the same leap. Up next the Sabres a team that has often put down the Hawks and stated that they haven't got enough to make the playoffs. With that GM Lewis has developed a friendly rivalry with GM Pitt and both teams are gearing up for the contest.
