  1. 22 year old 4th round draft pick traded for a 31 year old? I get that some guys just don’t make the NHL, but what’s the objective with this move?

  2. Another move that proves bowman doesn’t get it. A 22 year old might put it together in three or for years. A 31 year old will be out of hockey. Rocky please please please follow your instincts and cut loose bowman

  3. They want a reasonably decent team and a good culture in Rockford guys, and they traded away Gus so one extra Rockford D man will be up the rest of the year. Therefore, they brought back a known entity to help the culture on and off the ice. Dont get all worked up about this move.

  4. Stan..please leave my Blackhawks. Your plan of recruiting a zillion defenseman has failed miserably. You cannot judge talent. Thank your old man..take your money and go away. Rocky ..seriously fire Bowman and see if one of the Hunter brothers from the London Knights would do the job.
