I agree with this.
Hawks fans seem to think the Hawks invested a lot in Sweatt... but they didn't... Sweatt was never on their AHL affiliate and was never developed by the Hawks.
I don't know if this was Sweatt's decision or the Hawks, but even if Sweatt decided to play out his NCAA career to finish school then Hawks should have been fine with a max ELC on a 38th overall pick who would be on their farm club regardless...
