It does appear at this time to be a terrible draft overall

Outside of Kane none of the Hawks other picks have amounted to anything

2nd round - 38th overall = LW Bill Sweatt
Sweatt refused to sign with Hawks and was dealt as part of Versteeg deal and then turned down the Leafs offer and became UFA and signed with Canucks

2nd round - 56th overall = C/W Akim Aliu
Headcase got kicked off our AH L team twice and Bowman moved him as part of Byfuglien. Has shown no on ice improvement and is still a headcase (Last year in ECHL he went after a ref)

3rd round - 69th overall = C Maxine Tanguay
No longer with Hawks organization. Not offered contract. Dont know if he caught on with any other NHL organizations

3rd roudn - 86th overall = G Josh Unice
Not offered contract with Hawks and after a training camp invite to Thrashers last year I haven't heard anything about him

5th round - 126th overall = D Joe Lavin
Playing in Notre Dame ,,, Has chance to be with Hawks in coming years but is a depth dman at best

6th round - 156th overall = C Richard Greenop
Not offered contract , Signed with Leafs
