GOT him for a 5th from LA. What a steal.
Hawks have been good at signing free agents from Europe.LA traded him because he wasn't going to sign with them. Excellent job by the Hawks not only ID-ing him, but also convincing him they offered a very good opportunity. Panarin's success spoke volumes. Kahun too, on a much smaller scale.
Hawks got robbed last night. Should have had 2 points in regulation, but have to settle for an OT loss due to refs mistake.
Pure, unadulterated, total jobbing by the refs:
1) Carpenter cross check in face off the draw
2) Dach no penalty shot
3) bull**** handpass call
4) questionable penalty on Smith
5) Nylander getting a penalty on Pasta's embellishment
Ridiculously one sided. That crew deserves sanctions (won't happen). Ugh.
Huge 5 game western Canada road trip looming.
Yep, one week until the trade deadline. Will be interesting to see what happens with the Hawks.
