I was glad to see him pick up his game as it moved along. He looks promising.

As for the draft rule. Remember Belfour was a college free agent. Also, with respect to the maximum age, guys playing professionally overseas should be allowed to make their own decisions and IMO, that is who this rule protects the most. For example, a guy like Brunner should be able to decide when, if and where he wants to go to America since he already has established a career for himself overseas. If you allowed a guy like that to be drafted, he could go from a nice professional salary and a ton of playing time in Europe to peanuts in the AHL and an uncertain future.
