If I don't know that he won't help make the WCF you don't know he'll help make the playoffs. I'm saying it's a big gamble for an unknown quantity that could have poor ramifications for the club's future, a future in all probability with a much smaller cap next cba, than the possible positives he could bring. College doesn't necessarily equate to NHL.

Second, as far as ELC's, that's assuming guys stay healthy, are physically mature, mentally and emotionally ready, and GMJN brings them up at the same time. If those four guys are burning their ELC's that means there are huge changes going on on the big club and there's way more to be concerned about than their contract's possibly expiring at once.

One of these guys is probably going to take the Benn route and be up immediately next season. One of these guys is going to take the Glennie route. One of them is going to be blocked or kept down like Larsen was in favor of a vet in front of them. It's not all linear nor will the floodgates open unless house is cleaned in Dallas because they missed the playoffs. Besides again they've got to reach the cap floor and Larsen, Vincour, plus four additional guys on ELC's isn't going to get that done.
