Isn't Hutton in his first year at Maine? Unless I'm confusing him with someone else..

Look, I'm all for putting additional emphasis on NCAA scouting, but it's not as if we're crapping the bed there either. Jean looks like a solid pickup, and Gilroy was one of the most sought-after UFA's that year. We were also pretty heavy after Jeremy Welsh but we just couldn't offer him what Carolina could. Unfortunately the fact that we have (or had) a deep prospect pool and a lot of competition for roster spots really works against us when it comes to signing these kids out of college.

Now, in terms of drafting, I'd much rather have Nieves over Ghost. I'm just not that high on the kid. Will he be better than Gilroy? I don't know. Both are guys who might as well be playing forward because they're always looking up the ice instead of paying attention to their own end.
