Some blackhawk fans would dearly love to be rid of his salary, he's not a strict cap dump mind you but he's definitely over compensated for how he plays, Id say a 3rd is fair for taking his contract and youd have to play him with Streit since he is horrid with the puck, We would love seeing him with the puck against us Tyutin and Wiz gave him fits
it was funny, he was almost a guaranteed turnover machine
Obviously, playing the absolutely non-aggressive D that Q has play, has to do with the lousy play of the D...Nothing wrong with Hammer that wouldn't be solved by playing a Big Boy D, instead of the 'butt out in back, stick out in front' crap the Hawks are playing...and let's not forget, outside of a short time pairing with Seabrook, Hammer's been covering for Leddy, Lepisto, O'D, Olsen...
