When it comes to depth dmen the Hawks know exactly what BB can do. Stanton, not so much - he will in all likelihood surpass BB after some NHL seasoning, but thatís the way it goes. Right now, BB is the better depth guy to keep especially in the case of a rash of injuries.

I think most of us, and more importantly the Hawks, would rather have kept Stanton but you canít keep all your prospects. Now that he has landed, I imagine Stanton is quite happy that he was waived and there are probably a few others in the minors that wish they could get out, and who can blame them. Being a prospect in the Hawk org can be a tough go with all the skill they have on the roster and in the system.
