Well thats the rub right?
You get those here all in a knot because they fear the payback drop off from the likes that we could call up and rep them with.
A) that tells me this team is to fragile and is not ready to be leaving assets on the table.
B) They are knowingly or not ,acknowledging that our AHL pool is so shallow that they are not even good enough to rep out guys we are ready to let walk as UFAs. How sad is that?
Draft years between 2002 and 2010, the 2nd round has produced star(ie,Weber,Keith,Lucic)/well about average talent(ie, Hjarlm,Kuli,Pave,Howard) at a 10% clip.
Given the scouting staff we have and our dev team, i would love to hand them another 2 picks in the 2nd rnd to work with for 2 UFAs.
