Well, as expected. I knew Teuvo Teravainen wouldn't play 10 games. Why pay him his full contract, when all he had to do was only play 9…not 10. In comes Matt Carey. Hawks signed him last week out of St. Lawrence University.
Hawks are trying like heck to rest their players.
Bickell: 5 games.
Saad: He just came back after missing nearly 2 weeks.
Kane: out for 3 weeks. Knee injury…how quaint and timely, don't you agree? This allowed the Hawks much leverage.
Hossa: He recently returned after 3 weeks.
Rozsival: he's been getting his rest.
Crawford: He won't play all the remaining games.
Hawks are trying to find this nice mix to get ready for the playoffs. They've conceded 1st, 2nd and 3rd seeds. It is almost certain that they will play Colorado in the first round. Now it comes to which team gets home ice.
Resting other important pieces:
Sharp, Toews, Seabrook and Keith…how will this happen?
