Agreed. Of course, the question then becomes, what is the difference in Nich possibly using a few years in the NHL as leverage for money from the K, and a player like Jones being unhappy with being slotted on the second pairing after a few years and signing an offer sheet? I'm not saying that is good enough reason to pick Nich over Jones. I'm just saying there is inherent risk, even flight risk, with any player.
