for sure but Hall was a #1 overall pick and you expect those guys to stick. Guys picked at 10 are generally sent down for at least a year because it is better for their development.

With Nik, that was not possible as he clearly stated he would go KHL before being sent back to juniors. It was a huge risk to take him as there is now a development risk.

IMO, we dodged a bullet because a lot of us (including me) wanted Nik if Monahan was gone.
