Richard Panik is a strong candidate to play on the Blackhawks' top line alongside Jonthan Toews and Marian Hossa.
Well, the Hawks actually have two top lines as Patrick Kane, Atremi Panarin and Artem Anisimov are no slouches. Although Panik is not a naturally gifted offensive player, a competent and hard working winger could put up some really fine numbers flanking Toews. Keep Panik in mind during the latter rounds of your draft if he solidifies this gig. Sep 25 - 10:19 AM
