What are the Hawks up to?
1) Did they actually think Ben's play is worth being sent back down to be repolished? He was a -6 +/-.
2) Is Ben in the midst of a trade deal?
3) Is (I can only hope) Bryan Bickell in the midst of a deal?
4) Hawks have always carried 23 men on their roster...now with 22.............what's next?
5) Can the Hawks see the liklihood of Brandon Pirri or Jeremy Morin revisiting the Hawks lockeroom?
The Hawks still are pretty shallow on Defense. The Hawks have 6 million under the cap. Something looks too fishy to send down a stable Ben Smith and have an empty roster spot available. Let's see how this drama unfolds.
