A Heads Up

Just wanted to give you guys a little heads up about what to expect in the next week or so.  We’re planning on getting the player previews done (hopefully) by next week.  In the meantime, we’ll obviously be all over any breaking news, if there’s such a thing, during training camp.

Unlike football, there are virtually no position battles that will be taking place during the Hawks pre-season.  Sure, someone like Akim Aliu can force his way on to the roster while someone like Troy Brouwer can play his way off it, but for the most part, what you see is what you’ll get come October 2nd. 

Unless watching the competition for the 7th defensmen spot is something you really get your jollies off of.

    I dunno, the backup goalie is kind of an interesting battle (though it probably doesn’t matter since they will likely both see time…)

    Right now, it has the feeling of a tallest midget contest. Either way, whatever either ‘tender does in the pre-season will be largely meaningless when it comes to projecting what they’ll be like in the regular season.
