    I thought that other than his two big blunders, Michal Kempny looked pretty solid. He seems to move well and pass well. Not bad considering the competition.

    With the addition of Kempny, Campbell and another year of experience for TVR the Hawks should be back to having one of the top D in the league. They just need a few of their young forwards to be able to hold their own. Should be a very interesting year.
