Good morning Blackhawks fans! The Kevin Hayes drama has finally come to an end. The Hawks now own the 54th selection in the 2015 draft for compensation in losing Hayes and the rest is history. Who knows if Hayes will be great or the next Kyle Beach but losing on an investment for such a long time does leave pie on the face of Stan Bowman and the organization. Here are some morning links to start your weekend.
