So, he wants to just get picked higher than the fifth round, and that's why he isn't signing? Maybe it was a goo idea to not sign him then...

im sure he would go higher than the 5th round, but for that to even be an issue must mean the islanders are only offering 5th round money.

Draft status is irrelevant at this point, its all about money now. Isles may have low-balled him. Could mean they can improve the offer.... Could also mean he's a goner.

Would hate to see him go because of low-ball offers.

Even though he probably won't ever become anything in the NHL, its still discouraging that we can't even get a 5th rounder to sign.

Why? It's not like the team has issues with signing prospects. Maybe they don't think he's worth what he wants.

This is a team, BTW, that gave Brock Nelson an OBSCENE amount of money on an ELC to leave UND early.

It also may not have been the Islanders idea to not sign him over the summer.

Crap. I hate seeing the isles lose prospects who are developing well.

I wonder if this contract was offered last season or recently because someone posted comments of Kitchon's, where he said he was disappointed he wasn't playing in Bridgeport this season.

Maybe if Snow had made the offer last summer, it would have been accepted.

Just from listening to Kichton recently on The Pipeline show he wasn't happy about not playing in Bridgeport. If they tried to sign him last summer it would have been an easy signing.

I personally get why Kitchon wasn't invited to play in Bridgeport. We already had De Haan, Ness and Donovan there taking that small PMD role, but once De Haan got injured they should had been calling Kitchon right away to fill his spot.

Ness is such a bust, and was never anything close to the player Kichton has been at Spokane. Ness is faster... Kichton is infinitely better at everything else.

I wonder if its about amount of contracts. Maybe the islanders up there offer if guys like lee or mayfield don't sign this year. Also, the islanders may not feel he is a top 2 pairing d-man with all the guys in the system.

I think it comes down to one was drafted in the 2nd round and the other was a 5th rounder so when deciding who to try develop better the bias for most teams goes to the higher drafted guy

How many prospects does this make now? If Snow is building a young core why aren't they lining up to jump in?

Well, the players that left were all mid and late round picks. It's going to happen with so many draft picks over the years.

Would have been nice to get Kichton,it's too bad.

Ness and Hickey imo are pretty similar players.

Maybe similar in style, but not in effectiveness. Hickey has accomplished a lot more and plays much better, though not sure it's anything above third pairing NHL defenceman.

To me Ness doesn't have a chance at being at Hickeys level. WHich means AHL lifer (if he's lucky).

He is brutally bad defensively and gets burned/thrown off the puck at will. Hickey was better than adequate in his own zone during his AHL tenure.

Sign Brendan Kichton!(and others)

Arthur Staple ‏@StapeNewsday
Also have heard that D Brenden Kichton, #Isles 5th-round pick in 2011, has rejected contract offer and is likely to reenter draft in June.

Arthur Staple ‏@StapeNewsday
Kichton currently 22-61-83 for Spokane, leads WHL Dmen in scoring. Feels he can go higher than 5th round this time

Arthur Staple ‏@StapeNewsday
#Isles also keeping an eye on NCAA hockey postseason -- hope to sign Anders Lee of ND and Scott Mayfield of Denver when their seasons end.



This is so typical of how the Isles operate. They can not sign top UFA'S so at least sign your own prospects Garth!

meh who cares. sounds like a negotiating ploy. cant see how he benefits from going into the draft again. I feel like there should be some sort of compensation system or arbitration system that binds draft picks to teams. We shouldnt come up with nothing just cause he doesnt wanna sign with us...we offered him a contract...

After the Justin Schultz mess, I'd hoped the new cba would address teams losing prospects, who they'd offered contracts to.

There ought to be some compensation to the team.

oh well...too bad for him if he puts so much importance on where he is drafted, I don't think the Isles care too much, we have a lot of better prospects on defense out there

He's not going to the draft. FA time. Staple has this really wrong. Remember that Kitchon was drafted a year after he first became eligible.

Players who are drafted as 18 year olds can re-enter the draft. 19 year olds can become FAs after their 2 years are up. The Islanders have enough leverage to get him signed if he was to re-enter the draft. But if he is to become a FA, they lose the leverage. This is the same as the NCAA "loophole" (which I argue is not a loophole at all).

If the Chiefs get knocked out early, the Islanders gain some leverage because they can then sign Kitchon and burn a year off of his ELC. If they go deep into the playoffs, its going to be hard to sign Kitchon. This isn't over yet, I have a hard time believing Staple when he is wrong on such an obvious fact. All he heard is that Kitchon rejected the ELC. He couldn't of heard that Kitchon will re-enter draft, or thinks he can go higher when that is not possible.
