Glad that with all of 22 posts of experience you can evaluate who is "ruining" the site.

And you seem to have completely missed the fact that Grabo is making 60% more than Bolland, and Bolland being the superior defensive player. I'm not saying that Grabo is terrible - just that Bolland is better defensively, and that with the other pieces on the Hawks team the defense and cheaper contract are both big positives from the Hawks perspective.

yep. He is cheaper, is better in his own zone and has proven to step it up in the POs + he isn't bad in the offense too. He plays a very good 200 ft game

No. Bowman offered McNeill and a first. That right there says what Bowman is willing to give up for this "amazing" 2C. Bolland is important to the hawks. He is apart of the core and he has been filling his 2C role just fine. And to say Grabo is more of an agitator than he is, go to the canucks board and ask them. He's called the rat for a reason.

Not saying Grabo is bad by any means. Both players are similar, but one is offensive and the other is defensive. Depends on what kind of system your coach runs. Hawks need D more than they do offense. Trade makes no sense. It is what it is.

confirmed that that prospect was McNeill? All we heard was prospect + 1st. You know more?

I heard about 4 different prospects that were offered to that 1st
