What's laughable is saying this guy will never play an NHL game without having ever seen him play, without knowing how he's developed, and all the while knowing that players like Burrows, Chris Kunitz, Andy McDonald, Andrew Ebbett, Dustin Penner, Ryan Carter, who have all had success in the NHL (and that's just the players the Ducks have signed through the college free agent route).
Just putting the same heat on Gillis as other's in the media and on forums have put on our previous two GM's in the past for precisely this kind of signing.
