Sure, but he said the Islanders value Clark more over Kichton because Clark signed an ELC when Kichton didn't. That's not necessarily the case (I'd bet it isn't the case), and when ELC contracts are signed does not indicate the order of which an organization ranks its prospects. Hamonic signed his ELC days before he would re-enter the draft. Does not mean they didn't value Hamonic? Of course it didn't, it just means he is difficult to sign.

Clark will sign any piece of paper put in front of him. He's a weak prospect, his agent knows that, he has no leverage, he's easy to sign. Whether or not he should be signed is another matter all together. Kichton is not as easy to sign, obviously, he has leverage and his agent knows it.
