Basically, I would love for Bergevin and Timmins to find the type of role players the Hawks had in 2010 with the quantity of picks we own. I'm obviously not expecting each picks to be our Bolland, Buff, Ladd,etc. but if they can even find one guy who fits the Buff mold, I'd be so happy. Now is the time to reap the benefits of this draft and get a nice variation of styles among our prospects.
Byfuglien: Drafted 245th (8th round) in 2003.
