Of course, for every Khaira (who to be fair hasn't proven a damn thing yet, let's see how he looks at the AHL level before considering him to be worth anything of value) there's 3rd rounders like Robby Dee or Cam Abney. It's hardly an exact science.
IMO it's worth the risk, and this team could stand to take a few more chances and not sit on low percentage 'assets'.
