Because the season isn't actually over until they can't get >90 points. Real teams don't tank. Real players want to have jobs next year. And Syracuse is also trying to make a run so they'd rather the prospects are in that environment rather than wasting time on a team with no hope. Also they possibly don't want to seem like an organization that strips the farm team for no reason while trying to convince a new farm team they're worth partnering with after flaming out in the last two cities.
Wagner has been a beast lately. I believe that we will see him on the Ducks some day. Somehow, I don't know why, he reminds me of Andy McDonald - no it's not because of Colgate University . Not as fast but skilled and underrated as hell with tons of leadership. Ducks got a good one here. If he can translate his game a second liner is possible, otherwise he will be a good 3rd liner. His mindset and his work ethic will lead him there.
