Not just in hockey does this occur. Dan Uggla was a Rule 5 player and look what he has done. Organizations make these mistakes all the time.
I said earlier in the post that I wouldn't mind taking a shot at either. It's a no-lose situation when you pick up a young player.

However, taking a waver on someone isn't the same as declaring them an upgrade over what we already have. Either guy is likely an upgrade over Reece. But is either guy an upgrade over any of our top 6? Highly doubt it. But the chance that they may be in the future is worth taking a shot if the Isles management feels said player(s) are worth the shot.
