Homer just signed him to a one-way contract, 5 years, $22M, NMC.
It goes like this ...
He makes the big club right away. There is no Homer NMC contract. He doesn't even count against the cap, because the CBA has nothing in it about collecting your weekly allowance from daddy.
My friend played against him. Said he is tremendously talented and will be a staple on his college team. Im happy with the pick. Would still rather have had Thrush, Ohman, or Pettersson, but its not as bad as everyone is making it out to be.
Why are you tyring to force your opinion on everyone? Every pick, you've mentionned like five times in the first 2 pages if you liked it or not... Get over it, they know better than you do. They get paid to scout for a reason.
edit: And your opinion seemes to be, see what the majority thinks and say the contrary... its really getting old man, your acting like JXC all of sudden.
So Pikachu bashes all of our picks, but because he happens to know this kid, it's all of a sudden a great selection?
Awesome, go back to your corner.
Yeah, something about that. Like I think you got good opinions man, but it's a bit flaky when the only pick you like happens to be someone you know. And the whole Luukko thing doesn't help matters. I can get that your opinions are a bit slanted towards players you may like for various reasons - everyone does and anyone who says different is lying to themselves, and I'm not saying the guy sucks I haven't seen any one of these guys play, but c'mon now...
