    4 Nice young RFAs from the Jets in Armia, Scheifle, Trouba and Hutch. I would make a play on any of the 4. The Jets are a budget team and i doubt they pay everyone.

    With what draft choices? Hawks don’t have any for compensation.

    Wouldn’t be shocked to see them non tender Armia. He’s a fringe NHL player right now.

    The Hawks gave them a nice juicey first round pick,.,.,and now we can,t sign Ladd.
    Wast of time.

    It wouldn’t have been a waste of time if we won the Cup. Ladd, Fleischmann, Weise, and Ehrhoff were solid top notch picks that were under utilized and never given a chance to settle in, each to varying degrees. They could and should have put us over the top. Thinking the same goes for Daley and Sekac. Now that’s the way it turned out, a waste of time but we had the right pieces. This comes down to one person. Zero patience. I’m still reeling from it all.

    Hawks had too many moves too late in the year. Team was in a state of flux all thru the playoffs. Bad timing on Stans part
