Your guess is as good as anyone's.

Again, that 2010 draft (after Kabanov) has been nothing short of completely inexplicable. I recently wrote that Clark looked good at the prospects camp in the summer, but he was then signed after just two (injury-plagued) NCAA seasons featuring 35 games and two assists and has only played one AHL game since. They don't even have him down in the ECHL playing games somewhere. He's doing nothing (well, prolly continued rehab for that hip problem).

I simply cannot understand what the heck is going on there.

And once again, there's likely much more to this story and nobody is mentioning a thing. There seems to be stuff like this every year in Islanderville.

One has to question the consistency behind signing policies that, for example, let a kid like Spurgeon walk, but sign a kid like Clark? It's surely hardly a financial issue.
