News

"For 20 years, we've been talking goalies all the time, so Stephane and I think the same way." Jimmy places an emphasis on positioning and being selective about when the goaltender is aggressive.
Brad Richards happy with any linemates | 07/21/2014 9:31 AM
News
Brad Richards doesn't have a strong preference when it comes to who he wants to play alongside in Chicago.
Chicago Sun-Times

Impact
Richards might end up playing alongside Brandon Saad and Patrick Kane, but that's not set in stone. "I've only watched [Kane], and he's exciting to watch," Richards said. "All of that is played out when you get on the ice. It's so hard to talk about it now because it might or might not work. . . . There are so many different players you can play with when you play here. It's a great opportunity, no matter who [it is]. If that's the case, I'd be thrilled. If not, there are other options that are very enticing, too." If Richards plays with Kane and Saad, then that would allow Jonathan Toews to play with Patrick Sharp and Marian Hossa. That would make for two pretty intimidating lines.

Impact
The Hawks, however, don't think their 2012 first-round draft choice (18th overall) is ready for prime time just yet. While they did call on Teravainen for three games last season (no points), he'll likely begin next season with AHL Rockport. "It's going to take a number of years. . .He's only 19. There's a whole group of these young players where it's a process and you hope over the course of three or four years they're going to be able to develop not only there strength but the endurance," Hawks general manager Stan Bowman said. "The NHL season takes a toll on your body. Hopefully, you're playing over 100 games a year, so you're not going to be able to make those grounds up in just a few weeks of training. It's a process. I give him credit for taking it seriously. As a young player he's committed to becoming strong and working at it. We just have to be patient and allow those things to take time."

News
Blackhawks forward Brandon Saad will be a restricted free agent after next season and is due for a huge raise to the $764,167 he's making on his entry-level contract.
Chicago Sun-Times

Impact
Saad said there have been no talks about an extension yet. ``If it happens, great,'' he said. ``It's always nice to have that security and feel comfortable that you've re-signed. But I'm more focused on having a good year and contributing to the team. All that stuff will take care of itself.'' General manager Stan Bowman said that ``it's been a busy time for us'' and that Saad's situation will be addressed eventually. ``The exciting thing for all of us is that he just keeps getting better,'' Bowman said. ``We certainly haven't seen the best of Brandon Saad yet.'' Saad had 19 goals and 28 assists in 78 games for Chicago last season.
