Draft Day Shakedown

I’ll be around tomorrow with much more but for now, the big news is the Hawks selected defenseman Dylan Olsen with the 28th pick and have reportedly reached an agreement with Dave Bolland for 5 years, $18 million.  I’ll have much more tomorrow during the draft.  You can probably expect a live updated diary at some point with extended thoughts on everything. 

For now, I don’t really have much of a problem with the Hawks selection.  The difference between Olsen and whoever else you thought the Hawks should have taken is mostly arbitrary.  At 28, there’s no gimme picks.  It’s whoever management identifies as their guy and I think they’ve earned our trust.
