Anyhow, like I said, if you want to use the exception, go ahead. Like I said, it seems everyone here uses the exception in their arguments as if its an everyday occurrence.
Exceptions to the usual rule are hard to come by. I've never said once it isn't worth it to sign free agents out of college. But you're posting pictures of Alex Burrows for chrissake.
It was a bit in jest. Your original comment was a little...Harsh. I don't think anyone in here is touting this guy as a sure fire NHLer or a hot prospect or anything like that. It's a project, we all know that, we're all happy about it because we get him for free.
As I said, you're probably right. He'll probably never play in the NHL or make an impact in the NHL. Like I said, I just prefer not to write him off before seeing him play/develop under our system for awhile.
