First every player is not the same. Palmieri was signed early because Anaheim wanted to more closely watch over him as he got into a few social "issues" at Notre Dame.

Second if you think that Roy and Palmieri are built the same and play similar games then you haven't watched them play.

Roy may be listed at 5'10 but the kid is more like 5'7 and much thinner than Palmieri.

I'd ask you, what do you think the big gain is to signing him as opposed to allowing him to play another year in college? Do you think he will jump right into the NHL or do you just think it will be better for his development?
