Who has a 1 way contract for damn near 1 million bucks.
Same with Prosser. That's a lot of money to have sitting in the press-box, especially when you are butting up against the cap ceiling.
I don't see the logic in playing a raw 18 year old kid at the expense of other more experienced guys who are already signed to one way deals.
