That won't work. All UDFA will have to be 20+, since they will be eligible for the Draft until that age (kinda fuzzy on the exact age, but I think most of the details are correct). It's the same reason why Gillis was able to nab Connauton and Friesen, who were passed on in their initial draft year, and both are 19.
Best bet for UDFA would be 20 year olds out of the CHL or NCAA, but it's really hard to say which is better - the leagues with more games and a lot of tape on potential failings, or a league where it is mostly a different game.
Yeah, I might have "misspoke" (miswrote?) when I said "left on the board" because I really just meant that I hoped that people would share some information about any non-drafted prospect that are available.
I was thinking that people who were disappointed by the draft could start getting excited about possible signings out there and could share their hopes for the potential training camp/rookie camp invitees.
Also, when you look at Michael Howser (attending camp with Canucks), it's not as though younger players (he's 17--9/13/1992--with a late birthdate) aren't worth looking at. Clearly, the Canucks feel there's a good reason to bring him in (even though he's most certainly going back into the 2011 Draft--good chance he'll be the starting goaltender for the London Knights next season).
