Not really. Unless a team is sending back a player who can fill Hammer's spot plus something else there is no reason for the Hawks to make this deal. Hammer has arguably been the Hawks best d-man so far this year and any deal involving him would have to reflect that value to the team. The Hawks are contending and trading Hammer for an unproven d-man with a grand total of 4 NHL games on his resume doesn't match up with what we are trying to do. Plus the Hawks don't need more puck movers. If the Hawks move Hammer they would immediately need some exactly like him to fill his spot.
