In the short run, it makes us better now while still holding potential for the future. Should de Haan overcome injuries and Okposo finally wakes up, it could end up being a great move for Chicago in the long run. Chicago would be saving roughly a million on the deal. Hjalmarsson has two years left on his.

This move would then open the door to perhaps a bigger deal involving Streit, who I'm somehow not viewing as a career Islander.
That is a solid deal for both teams assuming it is something a very good Hawks team would want to do. Do they want to move Hjalmarsson? shaw has some promise as well. Both teams could benefit and I think that is what you would want from a deal.
