Who cares? At the end of the day, he's a goalie prospect. You don't give up that much for a goalie prospect, no matter what they do in leagues outside of the NHL -- simply too hard to predict.
Those assets can be used for much better uses. MacArthur holds a fair bit of value to a lot of teams and could possibly yield us a defenceman. Percy may not ever get a fair shot here, but he's at least a year or two away from needing that NHL shot... so might as well hang onto the asset to fill an organizational weakness. Prospect goaltenders are not an organizational weakness.
