I would do this trade but only if the Hawks deem Seabrook unsignable. The Hawks are obviously going to have to retool a few things because the current roster is just too top heavy. There's plenty of defense prospects that will be cracking the Hawks lineup very soon to make up for losing Seabrook. The physical game the Hawks lose will hurt in the short term, and they possibly could look to fill that need over the summer via free agency or trades since some cap space would open up.

Having the pick from Toronto (it looks like it will be anywhere from #5 to #9 overall) could open up a lot of things. Like possibly packaging Toronto's #1 with our own #1 (it would be #12 as of right now) to move in to the top 4 and grab a future 2nd line center in RNH or Couturier?

The White Sox were 3 1/2 games out of 1st place ,,, The Hawks are 4 pts out of playoff spot

Very similiar

And Toronto's pick is not going to be top 5 at rate season is going so there is no point and we wont be getting RNH or Couturier in draft and like I said there is no guarantee that pick amounts to anything

Seabrook is proven NHL player who hasn't even reached his prime

If he is traded it better be for better then a UFA dman , 5-9 pick and a 3rd round pick
