No, he's not that bad. CJ is on his own planet.
I've watched Rooneem the last two years at prospect and training camp. He's got great wheels, and can also score. Aulin had once described him as the best skater in the WHL when he was at Kamloops.
Why the Kings didn't sign him? Probably the same reason why we didn't sign Rome (money). It's stupid if you ask me..........We should be refilling Manchester with new talent, and giving some of these kids a crack. Rooneem will make the big club after a year or two in Houston. If Risebrough didn't think he was worth it, I doubt he would have jumped on him so quick.
As of right now, it looks like the Kings are doing nothing right. I know it's premature, and I know we only lost a couple of kids. But there is also reports out of Detroit that Ziggy wants more, and the Kings are not willing to pony up. I hope DT proves me wrong.
