I think it's a big deal. I mean, our franchise is built on drafting and developing young guns, right?

Cameron Cepek is the only guy who needs to be signed or we lose his rights. So if he's not signed before the June 1st, deadline, then he will re-enter the draft.

Not like this was unexpected though. We need to conserve our exclamation marks.

doesn't Emelin need to be signed as well?

I could be wrong but I thought I remember someone saying that on the prospects board.

Nah, we have forever to sign Emelin since he was picked before this new CBA.

Welcome to the fold Whitey.

No we don't have to sign Emelin this summer, it would have been the case because all Euro picks from the '04 draft need to be signed this summer but Russian players are not counted due to them not being in the NHL-IIHF PTA. At this point there is no time frame for when we will lose the rights to Emelin, but the NHL could change it at any time, although one would think that if the nhl changes their policy, they will give nhl clubs a good amount of time to sign their Russian picks.

Off topic of sorts but I understand there is some concern for when the nhl will get this worked out, as the Sabres have a comp pick for not signing their 1st round in '00, so you got to think they are hoping this gets worked out at some point soon so they can get an extra draft pick.

That's actually not correct Marc,

For the old cba, they broke it down by years up to and including the '04 draft.

So for '05 it was all Euro picks up to '01, then for '06 it was all Euro picks from the '02 draft, in '07 it was the '03 (and '05) and in '08 it's the '04 (and '06).

But the league chose to let teams keep their Russian picks due to them not signing the PTA between the IIHF and NHL. So we still hold the rights to Emelin, Sidyakin and Kruchinin as far as I know.

I like him a lot as well, like the way he plays, good mix of grit and skill. Now if he can only get faster over the next few years!

Congrats to Whitey on the contract. It should be fun seeing The attack of the W's, White, Weber, Wyman and Waxwell!

Yeah, I knew that, just gave the wrong reason. But it's true: until the PTA is settled or they make a decision on those picks from Russia, we have ''forever'' to sign him.
