Theres nothing to hate about Blake Hillman though. He has played like a rookie, but his mistakes are not egregious, he had made a few turnovers, but they are not the horrific cross ice pass types, and he has shown some great instincts to keep pucks alive in the O zone. Give him a season or two in Rockford and you might have a good defenseman there who can eat minutes in the NHL. At least he tries to throw his weight around. Lets get 20 pounds on that kid and see what happens.
