Maybe it's just wishful thinking but I think they may have a diamond in the rough.
I have no idea why Carolina would trade an incredibly raw second rounder who was still in college developing his game. Even if Alt amounts to only a bottom pair guy at the NHL level, it's still a lot to give up for a career AHL guy. Alt is still likely two full seasons in the AHL away from showing what he's got though, and is still a project to say the least.
