You can always go back and finish school. If it means that much to you that is.

Good answer...an answer that could only come from someone who wasn't forced to abandon their education prematurely...

I think that the point of that line was more that a contract would give him a chance, albeit an extremely slim one, to crack the big club roster. Whenever you sign a player, you don't tell him that, no matter how well he plays, he's going to be with the affiliate next season. You tell him that he can play himself onto the big club if he impresses enough in training camp. If Lombardi and crew really want to sign Boyle now, that's their trump card. It doesn't really matter that his chance of making the Kings immediately is extremely low.

Hmm, an education you can always come back to, OR the chance to make very good money at a very young age? Sure money isn't everything, but when an opportunity like that arises, it's wise to take it.

The last comment was a joke, a joke that wasn't too clearly drawn.

Setting that aside, I would like the chance to see how this project that cost the team a first rounder is progressing...
