Everyone hates reclamation projects that failed (Frolov, Kotalik, etc), but you should remember that Jagr, Pouliot, Moore, even Gaborik (due to injury) and many others were reclamation projects that worked.

Even guys like Boyle, Rucinsky and Straka were projects at the time of their signing. Yes, every player is different, and you can focus on the positives of those who succeeded and the negatives of those that failed. But the truth is that sometimes you take chances on guys like Stemp and Lombardi, Pouliot and Moore because you recognize that without them, you're are out in the first round, and hope they will succeed enough to take you to the Final.
