<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>JackBurton</b></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.</div></div>

I'm bias against Strome especially with the emergence of Dach; so that's what the tips the scales for me. I think the Hawks need a dynamic winger like Nylander, but agree I'm mixed on Kap...love his speed for sure
