As the hours, then the minutes before the NHL Trade Deadline ticked away, Hawks fans everywhere were getting more and more uneasy. “Would General Manager Stan Bowman make a move?” “The Hawks have so many holes…they need at least a defenseman and a center.” Well, with about an hour to go in the deadline, reports...
