I actually worry for the Hawks and other Hawks fans because the more I think of it, the more it makes me think the Hawks management is becoming like the Leaf's management....
Huet is really the only bad move. Campbell is overpaid by about 1 to 1.5 mil, but he was absolutley needed, fans really downplay his significance to the Blackhawks assent last year. Hossa wasn't a bad move, and really adds to the arsenal of this team. So he costs us Versteeg, Ladd, and Barker. Who cares? That's why you build a good farmsystem, to replace guys like Versteeg Ladd and Barker when they are going to cost you too much $.
