  1. Great pickup. Put Seabrook out of line up, as healthy scratch rest of year. Get the kids in for experience. Tell Bowman No more deals like he did. It hurts the team in the long run.

  2. Call it a rebuild already. It is probably not good for the bottom line so McD will not like it. But at least it would be honest.

  3. Since he’s been returned to junior he’s ineligible to play for the big club unless as an emergency recall which won’t happen. Only eligible once his junior season ends and there’s a decent chance that won’t be until after the Hawks are done.

  4. People say Bowman hasnt drafted well. Not sure about that. Once this wave of Defensmen are ready, were looking at a stout Defense. Thats younger then 22 23, so many good yrs as the anchor and with Lehner.

  5. SIT OUT seabrook & Keith the rest of the Year.. Put in few kids.. the Team is FASTER than fast in transition game… And they can play Better d than those 2 slugs… guarenteed! lol ?
