Are the Hawks looking for a centre?
The Patrick Kane at centre experiment in Chicago didn’t blow up in anybody’s face, but the Blackhawks have Kane back on the wing, which means they’re back to looking for a No. 2 centre because Dave Bolland is really the perfect No. 3 guy and Patrick Sharp is a winger, not a centre. The Hawks had Marcus Kruger as their second-line pivot with Sharp and Marian Hossa against the New York Islanders on Friday. Could you blame them if they were looking at Sam Gagner because he played junior with Kane in London?
