Not every prospect has to be a top six forward.
Really Ziggy? Never would have guessed.

Point is Ziggy, I don't see the value. In my opinion, he will never be a regular NHLer, at least not with LA, and with the kids we have coming into the system from more recent drafts, I don't see the value in using up a contract spot for him. I never said there was any harm, if you would have actually read my post, just saying I don't see the return value in this signing.

But when he turns into a 80-point first-line centre who is an all-star and named league MVP, I guess in some weird, roundabout way I should brag Ziggy?
