Having him a tier below the top-11 =/= unwillingness to have him in your organization under any circumstances. You don't know the organization's reasoning on these matters. Maybe they did think he was too much of a loose cannon--though they went and drafted Kassian a year later even though it sometimes looks like the lights are on but nobody's home with Zack--or maybe they just didn't think he was on the same level as those top-11 players (which is actually correct). But that doesn't mean they want nothing to do with the kid.
