    I created this account to ask this question, was it a salary cap issue? Could he have been bad in the locker room?

    Like has anyone else been watching Saad's play? Had a decent playoff run, but missing open nets and break
    away's this season.

    All in good fun and hockey talk.

    Cheers!

    Cap space.

    Still doesn't explain why we went for Saad when Panarin could've netted a far greater return.

    I said Saad couldn't get lucky in a brothel with a hundo....boy was I off on my evaluation of brothels!!

    it was a stupid trade, our GM thought we were getting Saad from 3 years ago, and simply that is not the case....shame on us.

    His even strength points were close to the same, he was better defensively, and he was signed for twice as long.

    The deal made sense when it happened. Just unfortunate that Panarin got better and Saad got a lot worse.

    I think it was to try to re-ignite Toews.

    Really bad trade in hindsight but it seemed good at the time. Unfortunate

    As well, and importantly, Saad had shown signs of raising his game in the play-offs. Unfortunately Stan and Hawks fans will need to wait another season (hopefully not longer) before that can be assessed.

    Hawks were screwed the moment Kane's and Toews' contracts kicked in.

    Temporarily. The hawks are coming up again with this new wave of talent.

    DeBrincat is our young gun for sure, I want the hawks to win it all however.

    this is the real reason plus the cap issue going forward.

    i would like to further add that the Bhawks thought his value was higher with 2 plus yrs before his FA's .

    for me, Pan never knew what the word of defense

    The defense thing was more of a systemic thing where Q let’s the Kane line get away with lazy D. Panarin seemed fine on D with Columbus

    Apparently...

    1. To get Toews going
    2. Saad is locked up for more years then Panarin
    3. Change needed to happen after two first round exits
    4. To off-set the loss of Marian Hossa, and adding a 'two-way' F in the top 6. (Saad was known as mini-Hossa)
    5. Familiar face, Toews and Kane 'missed him'

    And none of those things worked out, unfortunately for us.

    I don’t have much faith in that happening, but I’m happy Toews finally has a legit winger again in DeBrincat.

    That makes the Saad failure sting a little less.

    trading Saad and Rutta to the Pens for Maatta and Sprong will hurt even even less!

    Sprong is probably better then Saad already lol.

    But due to the 'Pittsburgh' bias, and Saad track record.. if this deal was done.


    Debrincat - Toews - Kahun
    Sprong - Schmaltz - Kane
    Fortin/Sikura - Anisimov - Hayden
    Kunitz - Kruger - Kampf

    Keith - Jokiharju
    Maatta - Murphy
    Forsling - Seabrook
    Gustafsson

    ^ Would be very happy with this blue line.

    thats the same lineup we came up with on the trade board...this trade works for both teams and Peguin fans would do it too...Sprong can't get out of the 4th line there, he comes here and you put his ass with Kane and see what happens...

    Looks like his a RH shot too (thought he was left) - would work well with Kane on his off wing.
    Kid has produced at an elite level in every league, no doubt he becomes a 55-60pt guy in the NHL imo.

    ...or trade Anisimov and Murphy at the deadline, let Kunitz/Kruger/Rutta walk, and sign Panarin this summer. Maybe he'll even take a discount to play with Kane again. That would hurt the least :naughty:
