I'm not saying it's not possible to hit a home run with these signings, just EXTREMELY unlikely

Take Brunnstrom for example (not a college FA, but the same idea). Everyone was salivating over him and he really hasn't done much
Most teams all said Brunnstrom would need time in the AHL to learn the NHL game, he is being compared to Zetterberg so there are reasons why all 30 teams were after him.

These highly touted unsigned NCAA guys usually pan out more times than not.

Brock Trottier was an unsigned NCAA player, difference is he wasn't highly sought after.
