Funny thing is Hamonic is by far the best player on that list.
As long as the Isles don't rush him and let him progress at the AHL I couldn't disagree with you more. You can't tell me that the Isles signing and now taking over the development of one of thier first round draft picks is a bad thing. If they try to stick him on the big league roster next year that would be a mistake. But developing your own prospects in your system is the way to go. Maybe after next NCAA season Brock would be able to step right in. But the quality of play at the AHL is better then NCAA and also will get him used to playing against men. There's also something to having your prospects in your system so that when they do get the call to the big leagues the system they step into is the same system they've been playing all year.
