Not overly concerned about Biega not signing with Carolina. He has been cooperative and even proactive in coming to camps and other such events of his own volition and on his own dime. He doesn't exactly have the chops to create a bidding war over his services like a Justin Shultz. I think we're just used to as fans not having quality prospect depth and the thought that there may not be enough room or opportunity is scary. I mean, if you look at an organization like Detroit it's a given that you're going to spend 2-3 years in Minor Pro before you get your full time chance.

We have a few guys like Bellemore, Roy, Sanguinetti, Rissanen, and Krueger that are outside shots at very best to be impact players in the NHL at this point that we could jettison if icetime was a problem in Charlotte. If these kids are confident in their ability, as they should be as professionals, organizational depth is not a concern for them. And if it is an issue for them, chances are good that they're probably not good enough to earn that spot on merit. See Nash, Riley.
