As long as we have a talented and good team as we have and make the POs, Bowman won't go anywhere for good reason. He kept the core, build a great prospect pool and doesn't really have a bad trade on his side.

Bowman won't go anywhere

When people leave that buidling, so does Bowman. It happened before very, very quickly and will happen again. The Hawks fanbase is extremely fickle.

Good that not every fan is blinded by hate and thinks we will win the Cup every year. Some are still not insane

Dude, we had the worst attendance in the league for many, many years and it had nothing to do with people wanting to win the Cup every year. It had everything to do with a lack of faith in ownership / management.

What has Bowman to do with old (dead) stupid Wirtz?

Coldsteel, there is no comparison between how the Hawks were run before Rocky took over and how they're run now. No comparison, at all.

The lack of spending to the cap is a major concern. The idiocy of the GM is another.

It's been beaten to death, but one last time: Chicago spent the most money in the NHL on their team this year in real dollars. You can be concerned about spending to the cap, you can cry and complain about it all you want.. the simple fact was that Chicago was spending a ******** of money on the team last year.

Bowman isn't an idiot, quite the opposite.

Id be interested if he came cheap. He's a big body and can put it in the net. Sure he wont play a whole season most likely but you never know. Dont count on him though. Like dont pickup another guy because of him. But cheap, I'm interested.

I think just as we've come to EXPECT hf50 to use INTERMITTENTENT CAPS lock on every POST, we can probably start to expect that every thread, one way or another, is going to get derailed into Bowman idiocy thread.

Bowman drafted size, Centers, Goalies and guys that will play with heart.
They just need time
How about Mike Ribero for a prospect & a 2nd rounder?

I'd also feel more comfortable in a guy like Bishop or Linback than Emery.

Lets not pretend that there weren't deals to be made. I'm not saying that SB should be in on every deal, but over the last year and a half he has utterly failed to address the issues with the team IMO.

Ribeiro to Hawks wouldn't have been a 2nd + mid prospect. Why should NSH trade Lindback to us again? Same for STL and Bishop


for the Hawks, there just were no trades to be made for a reasonable price
