But, I suppose I wouldn't be livid if we signed Carle only because Bowman wouldn't be compounding the mistake of getting Oduya. At least Carle is younger and better. But it still doesn't address all of our needs. Suter does.
If Bowman trades Hammer for, or then by moving Hammer signs a Brad Stuart-type Dman and then, on top of that signs Matt Carle, would that not be addressing both needs? You bring in the grit and snarl you need on the backend which Hammer, even though I like him, hasn't brought consistently while adding the puck-moving and transistion play that the Hawks also need, as proven by the success they had following Odyua's arrival.
