No roster limits. Kindl doesn't need to be waived.
Exactly…NO ROSTER RESRICTIONS, which is why Marchenko has the advantage over Kindl going forward in the lineup. Marchenko will play over Kindl when healthy if Babs is given the choice. Babs has mentioned several times that he would like at least two RH D in the lineup if it is feasible. I would scratch him out over Smith or Quincey, but he plays more effectively over Kindl or Lashoff.
People saying Zidlicky is small and can't play defense, he can play defense. But that's not really why he is here. He is here because he can make the first pass out of the defensive zone, knows how to quarterback a powerplay, and has a right-handed shot. Not all of our defensemen need to be shut down defensmen. Sure it's great to get a guy that can do both but those guys aren't available without giving up the farm.
This...... Zidlicky is probably going to play on the 2nd or 3rd pairing, playing minimal minutes, and is going to be on the point with the big RH shot on the PP that everyone has been hoping for since the start of the season. And for once in quite a while, he came cheap! He can only help the PP which as bad is it started in the beginning of the season, is the best in the NHL right now. So looking forward to the game on Wednesday even though it is on NBCSN.
Jeremy roenick talking about the Injury saying, I hate it! Go figure.
He even prefaced it by saying, "not just because its Patrick kane, who I love, and the blackhawks, but because its despicable."
I hate Jr.
Not sure why Roenick even went off on this. Harmless push and Kane loses an edge and goes into the boards. And of course Roenick is saying that the Hawks needs to retaliate for the "non call". I hope to God that he never puts on the stripes and tries to ref a game.
