Undrafted players now have to be given the equivalent of guaranteed no-trade NHL contracts? Drafted (as in proven) players have to take their chances, go where they are told, and can get flipped whenever the team sees fit. DaCosta has shown some talent and might be an NHL regular some day, but I agree with those thinking there is not much room for him in the Sens short to medium term future.
