Met his mom at Rookie tourney.
Definitely enjoyed watching him play there.
Seems like a waste of a contract slot but okay.
He can go back to junior and it won't count against the 50.
Way to take a positive outlook on things.
Kinda his MO
Looks like we have 4 ELC's that don't count against the 50 contract limit, including the 2 "Russians".
Isn’t it 3 “Russians”?
Therein is part of the issue.
I don’t care if it’s Maladroits MO.
This is literally one of the best days of this young mans life and Maladroit feels the need to make this kind of point?
Can he not find it within himself to congratulate the young man on his signing a contract?
Sad. It actually made me ill to read that post.
Good for him. Not sure he’s ever more than an AHLer but I liked him at rookie camp.
Chmelevski, Chekhovich, Vladislav & McGrew
Except one isn't from Russia, right?
Right, two Russians and two Californians (Chmelevski and McGrew.)
I mean he scored 38 points in 65 games as a 19-year-old in junior. The odds of him ever becoming even a third liner in the NHL are incredibly low. Kind of a weird prospect to sign any earlier than you absolutely have to.
Maybe the org, coaches, trainers, scouts, etc know a little bit more about the kid than you do. Those numbers aren't bad for someone who just came off missing a year due to injury. In addition, he has stood out in a positive way during the prospect scrimmage and camp.
And managed to do enough to get an invite to the WJC summer camp after a pretty good playoff run where he outscored Yamamoto.
Those numbers are abysmal for anyone with NHL aspirations. It sucks that he had a long-term injury but if it really has affected him to that extent it's all the more reason not to sign him at least until seeing what he does this year. He could have scored literally twice as many points last season and he would be still be tracking extremely poorly to ever be a NHLer.
Management should. There's a limited number of available contract slots and wasting one on a future AHLer is a bad idea, especially if the plan is to keep making bets on European UFAs.
There's no point in hoarding contract slots. Not like we're gonna add three NHLers and not give assets back.
That just means you don't get how easy it is to move someone like him if they so choose or that pretty much every team has a player like this under contract. Complaining about this is complaining for the sake of it and not out of anything that's actually a relevant argument to make. This is just what you do pretty much every time.
It's objectively a bad move. Of course it isn't particularly significant or going to hamstring the team in any real way, most likely, but it's still a bad move.
You subjectively don't like the move. The org does. Several posters around here like it, are ok with it, or at least neutral to it. You are the only on kvetching about it. Your opinion=subjective.
Signing a tiny winger who can't score in junior to a contract this long before the rights forfeiture deadline is objectively a bad move.
Incorrect. It is objectively a move that has very strong odds of not working out to where the kid is an NHL'er. That doesn't make it a bad move. In this context, an insignificant move that will probably yield insignificant results doesn't make it a bad move, let alone objectively bad. It's just insignificant but your need to incessantly complain about things won't allow you to just leave it at that but instead use absolute language and exaggerate things. This stuff takes away from credibility and you've done it to such a degree that you don't have any.
I like the kid, he's got moxie!
