  1. Blocker, excellent podcast chockfull of information. I look forward to the upcoming Rockford, NCAA season and juniors as it appears the lockout might be rather long. I have a question or comment about clendening. I really feel they have rushed him out of Boston university. There would be a number of benefits going back for his junior year much like justin schultz did at Wisconsin. Clenny needs to work on his defense. He was not a top 4 on the world junior team and really could have taken that next step to being a dominant college player before turning pro. It seems he wanted to follow his buddies such as Charlie coyle to get on the NHL fast track. Yet we know it takes defensemen longer to develop. Stan says clenny could be ready for a call up, but look at lalonde and how much promise he had when drafted. He is in his 3 rd year pro and not NHL ready. How about Ivan vishnevskiy who was a first rounder with offensive talent who never really learned the defensive aspect at the pro level. Rushing a kid out of college to the ahl, to me is not a wise move.

    • Time will tell, but there’s a good chance you could be proved right. Right or wrong, I just think the Hawks are one of those organizations now who want to get their hands on a player the moment they think he can handle himself at the AHL level. Clendening will work a lot with Steve Poapst and Keith Carney, and part of Barry Smith’s role is to mentor the young guys too. Lalonde’s issues are mental more than anything. As long as Clendening has a good head on his shoulders (and listens and comprehends well) his game will improve. I also think those who needed to know knew the BU scandal was coming too.

      Thanks for the compliments on the show. When you get an opportunity, Steve Ludzik gave us a terrific interview this week. Its really worth checking out whether you were a fan of that era or not. Tons a great stories and nuggets.
