<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>TMLSage</b></div><div>I was working on this deal quite late last night as I live on Westcoast of Canada with ChiHawak to help out both teams and was hoping to get some real objective feedback on the trade from some diehard Hawk fans and all I get is some sidetract debate about Alex Nylander who was not even in the trade. What do you guys ie <a href="/users/Stan_Bowman" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@Stan_Bowman</a>, <a href="/users/JackBurton" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@JackBurton</a>, <a href="/users/Krueger_Pharmaceuticals" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@Krueger_Pharmaceuticals</a> think of the actual hockey trade in this post. <a href="/users/ChiHawk" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener">@ChiHawk</a></div></div>

Is it decent? Maybe. Is it a good idea? No, not in my eyes. Yeah, Willy Nylander is great and puts up a lot of points. But how does he do outside of Toronto's shooting gallery style of play? I don't know that he'd look as good in Chicago. Also, there are questions about commitment to playing hard when it comes to him. To be fair, that may be 100% generated by Toronto's garbage ass media, but it is out there. Kap, eh, I'm undecided on how I feel about him.

Now, what does it say about the Hawks that they cast off 12 &amp; 17 before their pay increases happen, just because they are having down seasons? It is a really bad look for Chicago. Plus, the Hawks are **** this year, it is a collective downcast in points, for 88, for 19, etc (only 8 is putting up great #s). The Cat is fearless, I love him. How often is he mixing it up with players several inches taller than him? Strome, yeah I can't tell if he's dumber than a box of rocks, or sort of unmotivated at times, but he always looks like his brain is halfway out the side of his ear... But that doesn't mean I want to give up on him. I absolutely DO NOT want smokin' Nick Schmaltz to win this round.

So yeah, overall, I want to keep our boys if the offer is just Willy and Kap, and no one is going to make a better offer anyway.
