I hope he proves me wrong, but I've written him off.

He really hasn't improved much since he was 16 years old. I like spunky players like him, I had hoped he might be another Callahan for us, but it's unlikely. If he has a solid season and improves on what he did last year, he deserves a contract. I mean, who else will play in Hartford next year? We aren't exactly bursting with RW prospects.

Our RW prospects who might play in Hartford next year are: Thomas, Fast (if he comes over) and Kyle Jean. What's the harm in having McColgan there? He'll still be needed as Hartford's 3/4 line RW.

Worst case, he'll be the P.J. Stock of the AHL. Maybe he'll become Hartford's Callahan. And there's always a chance he might make the NHL, I still didn't give up on him. If we are going to give out NHL contracts to Tommy Grant and Sam Klassen, what's the harm in giving one to McColgan, who has better odds of cracking it than they do.
