Prince George is a prospect graveyard and Dean Clark is a buffoon, I can't really blame his family for looking out for him in this case.
We also don't know the entire story right now.
Exactly people forget that they would not want to be treated this way in real life either.
Just imagine that there was a "draft" for everyone in every profession, 99% of the people on here saying man the kid is lucky to play should just shut up and play where he gets the chance, would not accept the same treatment in their own life.
In reality when we get upset about players doing this we are putting our needs and the owners of any club that subscribes to a draft needs ahead of the players. In fact the players are just pieces of meat in a system.
teams like PG and Seattle for example need to attract players to their organizations not just expect compliance IMO.
