Kyle Beach plays for the Everette Silver Tips in the whl. The team is based in Everette, Washinton. He is back there and the Everette herald says he is playing well.I guess that is why I couldn't find him in Windsor.

Those are sharp jerseys, that would be cool to see them wear those again. I do not like Eager, when we got him from Phili he had concussion issues and missed most of last year. He does not have speed, puck handling skills, and on the ice vision for where his team mates are at. I don't see Cam Barker coming back they don't seem too happy with him and they have plenty of defensemen, and with Wiz coming back in December they won't have a need for him.

I heard on the NHL channel that if the Ducks keep on losing there might be a chance for the Hawks to get Pronger. I think that it is too soon to be talking about that did anyone else hear that? They brought it up cause Coach Q's previous relationship with him.

I personally would like to see a top forward when they eventually trade Khabby.

Sopel in. Walker probably out.We don't need a Walker against the Detroit.Wings don't have McCarty or Downey anymore..

Eager? He didn't get much of a look last year because of injury and he's only played in 4 of the 7 this year.IMO he does his job he's a big body and can skate and bangs and crashes.No doubt he doesn't show much offensively,never has but is effective in what he adds to the lineup. He's a fourth liner.Your not going to get much out of Burish or Fraser either and anything you get is a bonus.He's a heck of a lot more willing to drop 'em than, oh, say a Byfuglien...I may be in the minority on this one but to each his own...

Tony you do bring up a valid point, and it made me re-think Eager. My disappointment of him is from last year. He did miss most of the reminder of the year after being traded to the Hawks. Also I did just see that McCarty was released by the wings, but didn't give a reason.

The place is going to be very lout on Saturday night, I just hope that the Hawks win the game and collect the 2 points.
