2017 – Henri Jokiharju

Jokiharju could have been something on the Chicago Blackhawks’ blue line. He was a talented puck-moving defenseman with the size and skill to make something of himself in the NHL. However, Bowman traded him for Alexander Nylander (insert sigh).

I hope Henri Jokiharu has a long, successful career. I just wish it was for the Blackhawks. Drafting Jokharju was a win for Stan Bowman, but trading him was not.
