I'd rather them sign him, allow him to develop at the professional level for a year, and "use up" a year of his entry level deal. Is that a little more clear? I re-read my last post and I probably would have interpreted it the same way that you did.
The issue I see is that it makes no sense to sign him if he isn't ready to contribute right now, and what I mean by that is playing a regular top 6 shift in the AHL. We saw what happened when they signed Novotny too early and it set back his development as he didn't get sufficient minutes to continue developing. Zagrapan is another prospect that they signed and then saw him hardly play his first season.
