Not a fan of trading Byfuglien. Pretty much the only real physical player on the Hawks. Completely dominated Game 5 in the Finals and came up huge a number of times in the postseason. The only player on the Hawks who was capable of containing Pronger, IMO.

Plus, without any fear of retaliation, Kane is going to get bullied around next year.

I understand the need to dump salary, but I would have much rather parted with someone like Troy Brouwer over Big Buff.
