  1. Brock Nelson,.Panarin.Teuvo Terravaen,Dvorack,Nick Schmaltz;Philip Danault,Nick Leddy,Jordan Osterle,Jharlmson,JOKIharu,Nordstrom,Anti Rannta,Dominick Kahun,Trevor Daley.Just a few of the players that should be on the Hawks roster that Bowman has sold off and pedaled away for next to nothing.Think any of you guys might be able to piece together a team with those players?

  2. Brock Nelson??? I don’t remember him being in the Hawks system.
    If it wasn’t for Bowman’s last name he would have been fired.

  3. A lot of those guys weren’t traded for nothing, they were traded for other decent players. You want Schmaltz over Strome? No. Both Vinny and Teuvo were shipped away to get out of contracts that were suddenly bad due to freak illnesses. Zero GMs in the league could have predicted Bickell getting MS and Hossa a rare skin condition. Two dudes who would still be important pieces on the roster.

  4. Nelson and Dvorak were drafted with picks Chicago traded. Assuming that the Hawks would make the same picks at those positions is pretty dumb imo. Also Oesterle is trash and shouldn’t be in the same sentence as Hammer. Nordstrom is a 3rd liner at best. Daley hasn’t been relevant since the Pens won

  5. We all love the heart of Andrew Shaw…willing to fight players that are much bigger than himself. The problem is we could really use the draft picks that we gave up to aquire him from Montreal.
    Plus the fact that Shawsy was damaged goods when we traded for him.
    I predicted before the season Andrew would play 60 games this year. As much as I like Shawsy Bowman has made another silly trade bringing back an injury prone player making 3.9 million.

  6. It’s pointless to argue with a Bowman hater. In their make-believe world, cap space either doesn’t matter or could have been easily managed. Bowman should have had the foresight to make the brilliant deals at club-friendly costs that these “geniuses” have in hindsight. Panarin would still be a Hawk, happily playing here for the rest of his career at about half of his current salary. Hammer has been the second coming of Bobby Orr since he arrived in Arizona…blah blah blah. It used to be amusing. Now it’s annoying.

  7. I assume the Bowman Hater label is being thrown my way.Anyone who shares opinions with me knows I like to play Coach and G.M throwing opinions out there.If that makes me a hater so be it.Wirtz,if it is your opinion that Bowman could have done nothing different and this organization was destined for it’s current plight,I can respect that.I have made my thoughts on the potential direction of the Hawks future very clear.Just threw out there some of Bowmans previous choices that were solid and are no longer here.My apologies if I annoyed anyone.

  8. @Tim, don’t apologize for having an opinion. You are spot on 99% of the time! F ’em!
    I still think that Bickell was not deserving of that kind of contract at that time. I am saddened that the man has MS, he looks like a good dude. All of his teammates love him. But, he didn’t deserve that contract. My opinion! If you don’t like it, move along! I just hate that Stan was forced to get rid of Tuevo in that deal. The kid had the makings of a star, it was just a matter of time. Getting rid of Panarin is akin to trading Mike Bossy for Grant Mulvey. Stan should be FIRED for just that one stupid move!

  9. Does anyone remember what we got in return when Shaw was sent to Montreal?

    Hint – in theory he is the 2nd most potent offensive weapon on the team (and NO, the answer is not Duncan Keith).

    And that was only part of the trade.

  10. Actually the hawks got two second round draft pick for Shaw.
    Shows the importance of having draft picks.

  11. We could have had Sam Girard and Dcat. Girard was taken a few picks after Krys when they were both left handed puck moving d-men. Avalanche just signed Girard to a long term extension while Krys appears to be struggling in Rockford.

  12. Could’ve had a lot of guys. I’m 50/50 on bowman. If they let him go so be it, but there are a lot of bad gm’s in this league that he’s better then.
    Another thing I don’t trust mcdounagh to make a pick for a new gm.
    I think bowman gets the rest of this year and the two years that follows.

  13. Similar as what STAPE is posting, immediately after the Hawks re-acquired Shaw I stated that they gave up too much for an injury-prone player with too many concussions. With our talent-thin system, giving up two decent picks was a terrible move, plus taking on his contract. I also stated that the two most consequential off-season moves were re-acquiring Shaw and trading Joki. So far, it looks like we’re 0 for 2.

  14. Hey Wirtz, like where the team is now?? That’s squarely on Blowman. Yeah it’s a bit difficult to manage the cap space world but guess what? He’s the one that signed these stupid contracts, so yes it falls on him. THAT’s why everyone is calling for his head plus because of the Q firing to bring in this AHL at best coach. Of course the crap trades, lost draft picks and bad draft picks. He’s made a few good ones but a stopped clock is right 2 times a day!
