WE SIGN HIM LONG TERM BECAUSE OF COURSE BY THEN Kane and his lousy Playoff producgion willbe shjpped off to Buffalo for a big cap saving to allocate elsewhere...so strategically we sfillneed to draftan elite projecti le goalie to prep for the ensuing demands on cap that elite goalies.can command on the market that Crawford then Raanta will inevitably ask in shaking us down...Otherwise we rely.on medicrities.from the pipeline...
The Hawks don't need to draft a goalie, they need to add some quality D prospects to their system.
