Depends on what that guarantee is, IMO. If it's basically league minimum, I can see him taking his chances in the draft.

As well, why wouldn't he come to camp, contract or not? If you had a chance to participate in an NHL teams prospect camp and work with major league professionals (and I believe get your costs covered to attend) wouldn't you go? You can learn so much and show yourself off for an NHL team. Total win for MacDermid, contract or not.

Totally agree. One vet forward down there would be great, especially with the number of young players who are expected to come in this season to Manchester.
