Before we break down this season and spend the rest of the summer killing time til the season starts, we have the draft and then free agency. Some rumors going around involve Bolland and Leddy and have the Hawks moving up in the draft, other rumors are less specific and are more along the lines of team X inquired about player Y. What prompted me to write something today though was a comment I saw on another blog where someone said, (paraphrasing) "After bringing home a second cup, Stan's earned my trust and I'll be good with whatever he does". After two years of hearing quite the opposite about Bowman, it was almost shocking to see that quote. I still plan to post some kind of smoke blowing post about Bowman, but in the meantime, I have to admit, I like where the Hawks are sitting and regardless of what the real power structure is in the Hawks front office, the team currently sits in a position wherein it has just won a cup, it's cap situation is better then a lot of other teams, it has assets in the pipeline and on paper at least appears to be in a position to make some trades that could actually bring back useful players. AND, this team/city/organization has to be seen as a desirable place to be.
So, question of the day, has Stan earned your trust yet?
