Wild sign Rooneem

FYI:
Wild signed FA LW Mark Rooneem, who LA passed up on signing, from the Calgary Hitmen:

Wouldn't that put him back in the draft if LA didn't sign him?

Cool...I guess...all that HF says is:

Speedy winger with an accurate shot. Willing to play in traffic and works hard down low.

It'd be nice if someone has seen him or read some stuff to fill us in. Thanks in advance.

I know this is kinda off topic, but I didnt wanna start another thread, but does anyone think we have a shot at signing RJ Umberger from New York??? He just became a free agent yesturday I believe. Hes rated a 7 here on HF.

Helps out Houston if he can make the adjustment, I suppose.

Not really, he's looking for the rookie max from what I've read. I'm not sure he's as good as his agent keeps telling him. He'll sign somewhere but I don't think he gets the cash he is seeking.

The difference between a player that goes back in the draft from 2002 and one that becomes a free agent (The difference between Tim Brent(ANA) and Aaron Rome(LA)) is age.

If a player has Junior eligibilty left he can go into the draft. If he is ineligible for the CHL then he becomes a UFA. I think the age break down is turning 21 after September 30th 2004 but don't quote me on the exact date.

he is too old. He was an overage junior.

Well at least it addresses a need. I'm still shooting for Aaron Rome (complete the trade with Cliff Ronning for free!)
