I would think that would help both teams. Gives us a major prospect and gives Chicago a vet influence. Odd that both he and Aucoin would wind up on the same team eh? Neither one of the Caps or the Isles.

How has Witt looked this season?

I'm thinking he's one of those kind of slow footed physical d-men better suited for the "old" clutch and grab NHL.

If thats the case, he would fit right in on the Hawks who are the posterchild for the "old" clutch and grab NHL.

Look for Tallon to pursue this trade vigorously if that is the case.

I read in the Chicago SunTimes that instead of trading for offense, we are going to try to pull some of our alumni out of retirement. Denis Savard has said he would step down from the bench. Steve Larmer said he will don the skates again and make a man out of Tyler Arnason. Doug Wilson offered to step down from his post and rekindel that blueline. Murray Bannerman and Greg Millen both have said they can take over for the Bullin Wall and only cost us 2.5 mil each. Still waiting on word from Mike Hudson, Dirk Graham, Eddie Olczyk-who has said he would rather be a Hawk then coach a losing franchise, Gary Suter, and John Tonelli. Keep those fingers crossed guys!

Back to reality....

Hawks got Andy Hilbert who will help this club out. I love this move, give away a 5th round pick for a kid who only needed a change in location. Hilbert will put up 20 plus goals and 50-60 points this year mark my words.

In regards to the topic of trading for Brendan Witt, I say....huh? Why? How? Do we really need Witt right now with our lethargic offense? Tallon the brain surgeon lets Bryan Berard go because he finds Spacek in some beer Czeck league for a cool 2 mil a year. Berard is only putting up monster numbers on a such a horrible scoring team. How many points does Spacek have? Berard was the worse move I have seen in a decade since we traded Paul Ysebart away the year we made it to the Western Finals against Detroit. Who did we get for a proven 30 goal scorer...ummmmm Enrico Ciccone I believe! hahahahahahaha..

Witt is a good player no doubt, but lets not put a band-aid on a mortar wound. Hilbert is a good start, I also would like to give Comrie a shot if Phoenix doesnt want him. Ex Wolverines always do pretty good in Chicago.

I would love to give up Babchuk, Bertram, Bourque, Daze, and a 3rd round pick in 06 for
Comrie and Ballard. Ballard is going to be a stud, very tough to snag him, he would help out our blueline with his physical play, and Comrie will add scoring punch without giving up any...Bourque sucks, and I am not talking about Chris, and Daze needs to go to a warmer climate for his sissy back. Just my thoughts!

I thought Barker was the more valued Dman in Chicago. Has Seabrook moved ahead of him?

Step 1: Open Mouth
Step 2: Insert Foot

Worst move since trading Ysabaert???? Dont follow the Hawk much, eh. If you cant EASILY name 10 worse moves in the last decade then trading this guy...
Roenick, Belfour, Chelios, Amonte, Dumont, McCabe......

And Berard may be the WORST defesnive dman in the league. He gives up far more goals then he contributes to. He is already at -7 and the season is early. I was ecstatic we didnt bring him back. I predict he will never play more than two seasons with the same team, he quickly wears out his welcome. Look how many teams he has already been dumped by in his young career.

They are probably both equal now. Barker was more highly thought of but the poise Seabrook is already showing may have helped him catch up to Barker. The hawks are not going to trade either of these two.

Unfortunately I do watch Hawks games, as it has been that way for the past 20 years, and yes the Ysebart move was THE WORST move I have seen in my time. You dont trade a guy away who you coveted in previous years for some clown minor leaguer. We got outplayed by Detroit that year in the playoffs because we didnt have a guy like Paul Ysebart to help us out. Such a waste. That was our year man.

Those other trades stunk, but that is when the Hawks started sinking, they were a lost cause by then anyways. Plus those were more obvious choices, I picked the trade that really was horrible at its time. Worst move ever was signing that idiot Doug Gilmour and not Brett Hull. Pulford/Wirtz you suck!

Seeing as the amount of goals we have been scoring lately, and the dire need for a powerplay quarterback, yeah I can see why your happy with not bringing back Berard!!!!!! hahahaha

If you are going to sit here and justify picking up Spacek, then you need to find the closest road that brings you to the Sears Tower and go plummit off it. Anyone on that Columbus d who logs more then 15 minutes is going to be a minus player, they cant score. Berard has points on almost half of Columbus' goals... Glad we dumped him...

First off, I didnt like the Spacek signing. I wanted Roman Hamrlik, or a player like him that is a notch above Spacek. We all have different opinions on players and have our favorites and goats and Beard to me was a complete liability as a player. His offensive my look good to a casual fan but when you see him game in and out, his defensive liabilities are exposed. He is THAT bad. Ive never seen a dman as regularly out of postion or throw as many stupid blind passes that led to breakaways as him. He probably led the league in the amount of shorthanded goals scored while he was on the poweplay, if he they track that category..

Whats with your glorifying Ysabaert? He was a decent offensive player but was nothing special by the time we got him by I was a bit upset at the time when we traded him also but in the scheme of things it was a minor move. Fyi he was traded because he was an outspoken player rep and with Wirtzford, you know that is the kiss of the death to your stint with the Hawwks. And look what ysabaert did after he left the hawks, nothing.

just liked the way paul ysebart played for us. I dont care what he did after us, he was doing just fine with us that year. I cry every night that Berard is not here. He will outscore our entire blueline by the end of the year....well damn near close to it...

Spacek has easily been one of the few players we've signed that has played up to snuff. Berard's O is offset by his D. He's a PP specialist and a freak offensively but add in defense and Berard shouldn't play much higher then #5 on a teams depth chart.

Witt has been highly lauded for helping Steve Eminger and Mike Green this year. Witt is a notorious 2nd half of the season and playoff guy. As time goes by he seems to get better. He is a defensive dman who sticks up for his teammates.
