Normally on draft day you grade the draft picks, but after 2010 and the dismantling of the 2010 team many fans worried after the Hawks won the Cup about what moves Stan Bowman was going to make in the mini-purge of this 2013 Cup winning team.
The Hawks made three major moves that doesn’t include any of the draft picks.
In order the major moves of the day were
1. Dave Bolland traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs for 3 draft picks
2. Michale Frolik traded to the Winnipeg Jets for 2 draft picks
3. The Blackhawks re-sign Bryan Bickell to a 4 year contract
