I honestly think if he gets a decent offer he'll sign, but we're worrying here that he may want to come back for a senior year and prove he can be more consistent first, then get a better deal. If he does this it could ruin the next 4 years for Husky hockey. That being said, Rawlings may be under pressure to leave.We want the Gillies era to start here, and for Rawlings to find answers and continue his development in the minors. There's honestly not much more that can help him at Northeastern. He's a worthwhile project; he doesn't move as well as he should but he's shown flashes of brilliance throughout his career here. Good Rawlings is really freaking good and bad Rawlings is really bad.
Rawlings was invited to the Habs development camp last summer, and they could be signing his teammate Steve Quailer this summer, plus the Habs sorely need to improve their goaltending depth so perhaps they will give him an offer.
