People do know that many teams invite players for try-outs to find unheralded talent that you can sign without using draft picks? The guy who won the game for VAN tonight, Alex Burrows was undrafted and bounced through a lot of crap leagues to make the NHL. Any team that just goes through the draft and doesn't give try-outs is beyond foolish. Hamilton's leading defensive forward this season, Andreas Engqvist was a try-out that became a member of the organization and Brendon Nash, one of their better defencemen was an undrafted free agent they picked up.
Besides, this is one of two Development Camps the team is hosting, this isn't even the full field of MTL's talent pool. People are panicking over nothing as usual in the offseason.
