The draft system is kind of stupid, we drafted Brooks Macek in front of Marshall, and he doing pretty well at this season. 10th in WHL scoring 21+30=51 points in 41 games. But we have lost already the rights for Macek and are waiting these "marshalls" to pan out.

Thank god they extended those rights for European drafted players from 2 --> 4 years, I hope they would add an extra year also for North Americans. That system for Canadian juniors is somehow stupid. US kids usually go that college route.

I would trade these rights to Marshall any day to got those rights for Macek back. But it is what it is, stupid system.
Little over ppg on a Eastern conference leading team isn't that great. Solid but not that great. We could sign him anyway if we wanted but he needs to prove his worth before that imo.. at AHL level maybe. And we have logjam at forward for Griffins anyway.
