that's not quite true, as there are numerous loopholes to that.

Well, they did draft him.

as we have seen before (with sweatt), and will probably see this year (with schultz), that doesn't mean it's a sure thing.

Caron? That is a name I haven't heard in awhile! Hasn't really played any significant time in the NHL for 6 seasons.
Sig too big.
