I've gotten into hockey again after not really paying attention for about 10 years and for as excited as I have been about the Blackhawks lately, they have looked like shit losing 5 of the past 6 games. That said, during this lull, J. Toews was tearing things up in the Juniors chamionships and since he was the Blackhawks #1 draft pick last year, I was wondering how long until you guys think he will be NHL ready. I know he is still playing in college in SD, but once he decided to come to the league, will he go to the AHL for development or straight to the pro game to learn on ice like Crosby did.

Probably 5 years before he really starts to contribute. Mark

Well, if that is the case, he'll be up next year. In fact, thinking about it, I think Dale Tallon is planning for this to happen, considering all of the Toews shit that is plastered across the United center right now. Also, Havlat has sucked for at least 7-8 games and his only goal was an open netter at the end of the Blues game (which, btw, was also the only PP goal the Hawks have scored with the past 48 tries...that's fucking pathetic).

Im another sad sack of a Hawks fan but with SAvvy as coach and how he turned them around how can you not be excited. Hope maybe next year hell turn pro and maybe hell be ready for the year after next.

Might play next year, but definitely & more likely the following season, at least as a full season. Expect a couple of seasons of decent and improving numbers and by year 5 as Mark said should be a solid contributor.

apparently it is very likely he is there very soon, which is a stupid move on behalf of the blackhawks.
