Bottom line for me is the guy hasn't played an NHL game? Why does he get the sense of entitlement to dictate that type of clause on a contract? Sure it's a risk for him. It has been for a many European player not given that option. Life is full of risks. I can appreciate wanting to minimize the risk but not in that way.

Hamilton is part of the Habs' farm system for a reason. I thought it was because non-performers could go learn what the organization expects of them so they could excel at the next level. To me it could maybe set a precedent that would not be in the team's best interest which is what I'm against more than anything.

Gimme the guy that understands the consequences of underperforming.
