    Already? That was the longest offseason since 2012.

    20 teams have already played one. Real thing in 16 days.

    Hawks seem to be slight division favorites over Dallas. Everybody loves Anaheim to be tops in the conference, with the Oilers close behind

    Yeah, been saying for a few years ago that I won't be surprised when that happens.

    In other news, Hossa has been declared eligible for LTIR, allowing Franson to be signed, $1MM.

    They have about another $3 million under the cap now?

    Yes and no. I don't want to give a wrong answer, because LTIR sort of confuses the hell out of me. But how I understand it is they can now go over the cap by the amount of his cap hit ($5.25MM). But unlike actual cap space, they can't bank that space throughout the year, it's more that they're allowed to replace him on a dollar for dollar basis.

    They also really can't sign anyone long term with the extra money, because there is no IR in the offseason. So that cap hit goes back on the books and they can only exceed the cap by 10% at any point during the summer.

    DeBrincat and Forsling sent down but have apparently made the team and they are just doing some roster shuffling. Oesterle currently has a roster spot but I'm guessing they switch him with Forsling or they go with 8 D (not sure how the cap is looking). Jurco cut. Tootoo on the LTIR.

    Opening Day Roster? Been a while since I looked at lineups so I'm probably off in places.

    F(13)
    Saad - Toews - Panik
    DeBrincat - Schmaltz - Kane
    Sharp - Anisimov - Hartman
    Hayden - Kero - Wingels
    Bouma


    D(8)
    Keith - Murphy
    Kempny - Seabrook
    Forsling - Rutta
    Oesterle - Franson

    G(2)
    Crawford
    Forsberg


    Waivers:
    Jurco

    LTIR
    Hossa
    Rozsival
    Tootoo

    I'd feel a little better with Hinostroza on the bum slayer line but there than that, the forwards look solid.
    D will be a work in progress all season, I'm sure. Hopefully we figure it out by April

    How many times in a season do they typically score 10? 1? None?

    Hawks high was 6 last year.
    They scored 7 twice in 2015, once in 2014 and twice in 2013. They put up 8 in 2012 (Dallas).
    Hawks put up 9 against Edmonton on 12/16/08. That is the most goals that I can see in recent history.

    Team record is 12 goals, which they did once against the Flyers in 1969.

    Also of note, the Blackhawks and Edmonton played the highest scoring game in NHL history on 12/11/85. The Oiler won 12-9.

    Hopefully they are just being cautious. Sounded like they at least considered putting him back out last night so it shouldn't be too serious.

    Call up Hino to play with Hartman and Kane for a couple games? Leave the other lines alone.

    Tomorrow might be fun... Toronto has also scored 15 in two games.
