Seems about right. Spend a little money and get a 6th rounder. Nothing wrong with that.
I guess this guy is part of a long list who just never really moved to the next level. Seems to be a consistent theme in Blue Jacket prospects... Man that franchise is the kiss of doom to young talent. I think we all underestimate just how important a teams development strategy is to the creation of NHL careers.
Legein seemed to have two major problems. That he may not have wanted to be a professional hockey player (but had talent) + blue jackets. So by the time he gets a second chance with the Flyers things are a bit past the point of return. Never know though.... If he plays for Manchester things could turn around. God knows we seem to love small fast players in the AHL!
