After fighting and crawling for an opportunity, I doubt he walks away from one, and to be honest, probably knows its his best opportunity to be in the AHL next year.
Knowing the few NHL guys (and how scouting works) one weekend does not make a player. His play last year earned him the contract, and his play last year and in training camp will dictate where he plays, not a random weekend in July. Besides, He earned an NHL contract, he could not have been that 'poor'.
Congrats to him, and congrats to the Knights for playing a role in his development.
I wanted to see him come to the Jets camp this week and sign but congrats to Houser. Everything you said is right on....the agents, players, coaches, GM's know the "real" deal....as fans we think we know but 9/10 times we're not even close.
