Yes he could also be more. Yes he is just as worthy of a contract, likely more, than numerous past NYR undrafted UFA experiments. Not knocking the kid or saying he shouldn't be brought in...just offering some perspective before the runaway hype locomotive gets rolling down hill.
Statistically, there isn't a 50% chance that any player drafted outside of the top 5 becomes an NHLer.

That is to say, I agree with you. It's fun to bring in new prospects. But we gotta stay realistic about them.
