Just have to make sure the message to these guys is clear and an occasional bone is thrown to our top level prospects or they can (and will) bolt. They're not indentured servants and there is plenty of money to be made for top talent in EUR/KHL.

Europe is leverage for guys like VV if he wants to go that route. The difference in salary for him right now is HUGE and he's spent 3 seasons in New Hampshire already and has little else to prove there.

Kings can't **** this one up! This kid could be special...bigger upside than A-Mart... maybe even JMFJ too.

I'm not saying he should have made the team, I'm just preaching caution and extra care with this guy.
