Pretty good price to pay for a potential starter. Nice work!

From a Hawks perspective this was a deal about maximizing an asset. As a back up Greiss has been excellent this year. However, with 1 year remaining on Luongo's contract, I wasn't going to re-sign Greiss. I was going to lose Greiss for nothing in two weeks; at least now I gain three top 65 picks.

The return is a top 35 pick, ~58, and ~ 60. I need quality depth and this will help to create long term depth without hurting this year's playoff chances.

Thanks to Cheese for the easy talks. Always a pleasure.
