I know those signings will be labelled as "depth" but I think that there were some better depth players available (i.e Dustin Walsh and Alex Belzile).
I don't see the harm since it costs nothing other then the Hamilton owner footing the bill. I assume Courtnall will be in the ECHL. Grassi might be better then Corbin but even if they keep him up all year it doesn't matter as long as he's not taking away from the prospects.
