Well Hawks fans are pissed off..... I went out for a couple of drinks and started talking hockey with this dude at the bar and he was bashing Bowman and portraying Kempny as the next Ray Bourque or Bobby Orr.....lol.. He said this trade was "one of the worst trades in Blackhawks history".....
Kempny didn't work in Chicago - it happens, sometimes players don't work with one team but they work with another..... Trevor Daley is another example of a guy that didn't work in Chicago but he worked in Pittsburgh...... So what? what were the Hawks supposed to do? redesign their defense and strategies to work around these guys?
It's no ones fault that Kempny didn't work in Chicago... He didn't fit the Hawks game/style/strategies etc..
I'm happy with the 3rd round pick (watch the Hawks draft a stud with the pick too), and although I really don't like the Caps I'm happy things worked out for him in Washington.
