Justin Lowe: Sikura Finally Signs If you would have told me that the Blackhawks would be icing a lineup that encompasses the likes of David Kampf, Andreas Martinsen, Matthew Highmore, J.F. Berube, Dylan Sikura and Victor Ejdsell in March 2018, I would say their season has gone completely sideways. Boy is that ever an understatement but we carry on and can celebrate the signing of the Hawks top prospect, Dylan Sikura.

First - sideways may have been needed to keep the window open.

Nice to see the Hawks win that game Saturday. They are sitting in the #7 draft slot currently. Assuming they don't win the draft lottery, they will pick there. They should be able to choose from a couple of the top d-men available. The Isles are sitting at #8, so the Hawks closed the gap there to one point. But, having said that, they probably won't win another game this season. SJ needs to win tonight, Winnipeg has closed the gap on Nashville and will want to win on Thursday, Colorado will need to win the game the Hawks play them, the 2 against St. Louis the Blues will need to win. The only game that may not mean anything is the finale against Winnipeg.

What kind of sucks for the Hawks sitting 7th to last, they will have a good chance of getting bumped a slot to 8th.

Here are the draft rankings according to an aggregate of 6 sources (ISS Hockey, Marek, Hockeyprospect.com, Scott Wheeler, Dobber, McKenzie)
1. Rasmus Dahlin, D
2. Andrei Svechnikov, RW
3. Filip Zadina, LW
4. Brady Tkachuk, LW
5. Adam Boqvist, D
6. Oliver Wahlstrom, RW
7. Evan Bouchard, D
8. Quinton Hughes, D
9. Noah Dobson, D
10. Joe Veleno, C
11. Joel Farabee, LW
12. Barret Hayton, C

I'll be posting a few write-ups on each guy so we can have a sense of what each guy brings to the table, and who they might compare to. If anyone wants to take a crack at any of them, let me know.

1. Rasmus Dahlin, D, 6'2", 183 lbs.
The consensus number 1 pick. Supposedly has every tool imaginable for a young defenseman. Has been called everything from Karlsson to Lidstrom. There's Dahlin, then there's everyone else... according to one scout. His offensive capabilities are known, he's great at opening up lanes, can shoot, and has pinpoint passing.
How is his defense? From what I've watched: crafty.
He's not the fastest in the league, or necessarily the strongest at 18 (that could change). But he does seem to have tricks up his sleeve: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hE3xSRjfDkg

He can skate the puck out of trouble, and can use moves that most forwards would use in a breakaway scenario to do it. This is on large euro rinks with lesser opponents, but it speaks to his confidence. A lot of these tricks will likely diminish once he reaches the NHL.

He uses his left skate to drag along the ice and change his angle when skating, making him hard to defend through the neutral zone and skating in from the point.

There isn't much evidence of him making contact, which probably puts many Hawks fans on edge while thinking of the 'no hit' Hawks of the last few seasons. He is still growing though, and putting more meat on a 6'2" frame could lead to more step-ups like this: https://www.youtube.com/w...tch?v=OMig8EbUFx8#t=2m45s

His strongest attributes seem to be puck-handling, and navigating the neutral zone.
His room for improvement will likely be: adjusting to smaller ice, heavier play.

Best case scenario: Erik Karlsson
Worst case scenario: Nick Leddy
Plausible scenario: Oliver Ekman-Larsson

2. Andrei Svechnikov, RW, 6'3", 187 lbs.
The tall Russian has been neck and neck with Zadina for the number 2 spot behind Dahlin. His brother was taken 19th overall by Detroit in 2015 and has started to play a handful of games with the big club this year. I caught a Grand Rapids Griffins game against the Chicago Wolves earlier this year, Svechnikov (the brother) was mostly invisible that game.
Andrei has a big body and long reach. He seems to gravitate toward the net whenever he's in the offensive zone. It looks like many of his goals could be scored in the dirty areas. He has the ability to draw multiple defenders to him to open up teammates on the opposite side of the net: https://www.youtube.com/w...tch?v=kDk5gw5q9Vo#t=4m54s

His long reach gives him a puck control radius reminiscent of Patrick Laine or Marian Hossa, where no puck behind the net is totally out of reach.

He reaches a decently high speed with a low amount of strides, and seems to glide through traffic easier than most. He almost looks slow because of how few strides he takes in the offensive zone, but looking at the people chasing him tells a different story.

He's a lefty, so his office on the PP is flipped from where Ovechkin/Stamkos normally setup. He has a good one-timer, but his wrist shot seems to be his main weapon of choice. Any time he's had more space on the larger ice surfaces he seems to flourish: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_iYyg6Fwd0

Svechnikov has a nose for the net, and seems to create a decent scoring chance on most of his shifts. He seems to be the kind of player that opposing coaches have to be mindful of, because the puck will end up at least near their net at some point during his shift. Although he seems to be a shoot-first winger, his ability to draw defenders and find teammates could lead to more assists.

The one thing that I don't like is how long it's taken his brother to crack a poor Detroit lineup. If the Stromes are any indication of overhyped pedigree, that would give me some pause on taking Svechnikov with a #2 pick over Zadina. However, the offensive tools are readily apparent, and that is why he'll be taken much sooner than his brother.

Best case scenario: Jakub Voracek, Marian Hossa
Worst case scenario: Jakob Silfverberg, Kevin Hayes
Plausible scenario: Thomas Vanek, Alexander Radulov



3. Filip Zadina, LW, 6’1”, 192 pounds
The latest top prospect our of Halifax Moosehead’s pedigree (MacKinnon, Drouin, Ehlers, etc.), the Czech winger has been commended for his three zone play.
At 192 pounds there’s not much filling out left to do, Zadina seems to be more mature than other prospects at the forward position.

Fair warning: he’s probably my favorite player in this draft, apologies for any bias.

He seems to never run out of energy. Constantly hounding the puck or jockeying for position like it’s the last two minutes or a game down by one.

He shoots a ton, https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHM74F3FzPg
His wrist shoot is deadly, likes to score top shelf. Backhand is sneaky strong.

He has 44 goals, 38 assists, 82 points in 57 games for Halifax, and its a safe bet that this will be his final season in junior. Granted these aren’t MacKinnon/Drouin numbers, but it’s still impressive that he’s clipping along way above a point per game.

Zadina isn’t necessarily a Selke candidate, wingers rarely are, but his two way play has been noticed. Some reports state that he recognizes lanes and forces opposing players to make more difficult passes. Usually any compliments on a junior superstar’s defensive ability means a lot considering they’re usually deployed in the offensive zone and relied on for scoring.

Zadina’s offensive tools are second only to Svechnikov’s, and in some cases better. He has great deking ability and can weave through defenses like he’s running a cone drill. He’s likely faster than Svechnikov, and has quicker strides to get up to full speed. Zadina isn’t the fastest forward available, but he is not lacking at all in speed/acceleration.

Zadina has the characteristics of a ‘spark plug’, but his raw talent deserves a better moniker than something deserved for third liners. He will get rough along the boards, tie up sticks by slamming his into others’, and take an opportunity to hit if it presents itself. All of these traits as a puck hound should immediately help any team that strongly relies on puck cycling.

The few drawbacks of Zadina are that he might overlook teammates with a better angle while he waits for his shot, and his rough game might not be as dominant against fully grown men in the NHL.

Best case scenario: Brad Marchand, Taylor Hall
Worst case scenario: Mikkel Boedker, Michael Frolik
Plausible scenario: Filip Forsberg, Mike Hoffman

So I'm thinking there's a 99.99% chance the Hawks will win the draft lottery (pass the kool aid), but if they don't I'd be happy with one of Wahlstrom, Bouchard or Dobson. Given the needs of the team I'm inclined to go with a defeneman, but this year is a defense heavy draft so I wouldn't be against grabbing one of the top 3-5 forwards.

I am hoping the hawks can get to the number 4 pick or higher. I know they will have to lose the rest of there games and get some luck in the lottery but this team need to get some life in it for next year. If they come back with a similar group I do not see any improvement from this year. ( by similar I mean just adding 1 or 2 new role players or just shuttle up the Rockford prospects) If you can add either Dahlin, Svechnikov, Zardina, or Tkachuk then you would be adding some life. Any player below that would not be in the league for a year or 2.

Now that Sikura has signed, how about some Mea Culpa from all the experts and know-it-alls on this board who were sure there was no way it was going to happen. Of course this is excluding Darth's sarcasm.

On another note, how about a shout out to the B1G Hockey conference placing 3 teams in the Frozen four (Ohio State, Michigan and Notre Dame)

What about Quinn Hughes? Too small? Kid was super impressive this weekend in both Michigan games. Amazing skater and puck handler, great defensive plays. Reminds me of Johnny Gaudreau the way he skates. I guess he's probably a ways away from NHL though and the size thing. That seems the way the NHL is going maybe? Small guys can prevail now?

Everyone wants to look at the negative.

However...

I think the way the Hawks season has gone is one of the reasons Sikura ended up signing.

There's a cool youth movement coming for the Hawks. I think if they were winning and locked up/solidified with their roster, Sikura probably doesn't sign. Since the season has opened the door for a lot of young guys to come up and see what they have, I bet the Hawks spun it to Sikura that he's part of the future plans and all he needs to do is look at the current team and he'd be able to see that--it's a new dawn for Blackhawks hockey, one that hasn't been seen in a long time, and I think that was probably a big selling point for Sikura.

Just my opinion.

Equipment in those days was so much smaller, especially the combo and the jerseys.
Ken Dryden was 6'4" and still looks much smaller compared to modern goalies and equipment

For anyone who attends or watches IceHogs games, could you please share your opinions on Graham Knott and Alex Fortin? I suppose their role isn't that big, but do you expect that to change next year or not so much? And where would you slot Darren Raddysh? Thanks a lot!

Not going to happen. Instead they will go from "This guy is the greatest things since sliced bread, Bowman is an idiot, the Hawks will never sign him, he will sign with Pittsburgh" to "This guy is a career AHL'er, will never see the ice in the NHL, and Bowman should have let him walk."

Good questions...I'd like to know too, especially with Raddysh. I wonder if he'll get an NHL contract.

While this season was a disappointment there are a few bright spots - DeBrincat, Schmaltz, Sikura, Jokiharju (get season in the W) and a top 10 pick (most likely 1st overall). It's not the way we wanted the season to go, but there are some positives out there.

4: Brady Tkachuk, C/LW, 6'3", 196 lbs.

Another Tkachuk, another big body pest who can turn any game into an emotional rollercoaster for both teams. The second Tkachuk son's season at Boston University was just ended over the weekend by Michigan. He had 31 points in 40 games on a good Boston team as a freshman. He was frequently playing with Minnesota Wild prospect Jordan Greenway, who should be making his NHL debut this week. The team also boasted Nashville prospect Dante Fabbro and Dallas goalie Jake Oettinger. One defenseman who has logged heavy minutes on this team is Chad Krys, a Blackhawks prospect who is likely the 4th or 5th top D prospect in the Hawks system.
Enough on college situations, Tkachuk likely looks to go straight to the NHL like his brother Matthew did for Calgary. Matthew was taken #6 overall, so there doesn't seem to be a large gap between their perceived value here. Some articles think Brady will be better because he is taller, others say he's going to be exactly the same. It's tough to say.
31 points in 40 games seems weak for anything not in the NHL, but college scoring is hard to come by when you're playing against other top programs. Some college players put up huge numbers, but they're also doing it against teams that get second pickings of top young players.
He has a willingness to go to the net and take punishment, probably as much as anyone in the draft. He's got a big frame, and will likely end up well over 200 lbs. He doesn't have the dazzling top tools that Dahlin, Svechnikov, and Zadina have in terms of dekes, shot, and slick moves, but he is just below that. He also has something the other three (besides maybe Svechnikov) somewhat lack, a huge frame that is impossible to move.
One thing that a team can value when they pick Tkachuk is something that is rarely found in a draft: certainty.
Yes, Dahlin looks like a top flight defenseman. Erik Johnson also went #1, and ended up becoming a very good defenseman, but never a Norris candidate. Svechnikov and Zadina could end up being a couple of Sam Bennetts. I doubt any of the three will be busts, but I'm nearly certain that Tkachuk will be a 'very good' NHL player.
His biggest contribution at first glance would be his agitation ability, like Andrew Shaw, or Antoine Roussel. But that would diminish the skills that the kid has. He has very good speed, great hands, very solid puck control and board battle ability, and many other raw hockey talents that are valuable to a player with or without the last name Tkachuk. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhOMx5B9wKk (please excuse the 5'7" linemate)

He can roof the puck consistently, and has the ability to set teammates up with easy one timers. I was able to catch BU's game against Cornell, which they won. Tkachuk didn't stand out that much (it's hard at the college level), but absolutely no one moved him. It's like he was wearing shoes in a game played on rollerblades. His big body just does not get bumped off track.

Best case scenario: Leon Draisaitl, Brad Marchand
Worst case scenario: Andrew Shaw, Cal Clutterbuck
Plausible case scenario: Matthew Tkachuk, Wayne Simmonds

Does the #7 pick and Forsling allow the Hawks to move up to #3/4 to get one of the stud forwards? Preferably Tzchuck to infuse some size & nasty into the Hawks top 6. Imagine a 2nd line of Cat-Schmaltz-Tzchuk for the next few years with the Vets Saad-Toews-Kane as line 1??? I like the sound of that.
