A one year deal at the max wouldn't have hurt the organization at all, he was a 1st round pick and our organization needs a good 2nd line center (yes we have Immonen but he's still a ?? how he will play in NA)
I agree, it was stupid to let this guy go....but dont forget we werent the first who couldnt get a contract with this kid. Plus, it wasnt as if we didnt get anything for him, you never know what our second rounders could turn out to be.....our one "gem," tyutin, was a second rounder
