Can you just hear Benning........"we'd really love you to play the last few games with the Canucks and maybe help with ticket and season tickets sales, but if you play really well you could ruin our chances to end up in last place."  :o

He could put a clause in his contract that says he can only play well once the game is out of reach. For this year of coarse.

As someone said I think a few pages back.  The best possible scenario is him signing that ATO for Utica and then signing full time after our season so he doesn't burn that year or some such thing

I don’t care as much about burning a year of the contract as I do about burning a year of expansion draft exemption, which apparently he wouldn’t do if he were to play the last 7 games this year (the omnipotent @SID.IS.SID.ME.IS.ME explained this a couple pages ago).

Do people not realize that a player that was drafted from major junior can refuse to sign. If the player or the team dose not come to an agreement then the player would go back into the daft. The team would either lose or trade his rights. " Lindros"

He could not play for the Canucks and then go to Utica for the playoffs. He could go directly to Utica though on an ATO and play in the playoffs.

That would be the best situation. Save a year on his elc and get another  chance to win a different championship. 

 

And he won't "disrupt the tank" lol

well let me just get the ball rolling and say that we better draft the highest rated B.C. born player this year or pur pick will either refuse to sign and go back into the draft, bolt to the KHL or stay in Sweden to play close to home or stay in college until he is ufa. in fact I am starting to wonder if any of our draft picks will ever sign with us again.

Ya , Pettersson will probably stay in Sweden and never play a game for us.:o

In my opinion, it really wouldn't be a huge deal if we blew that year and had to protect AG. The way our forward group is looking around that time, there's not really much of a problem on protecting our forwards....

 

Bo & Brock definitely protected. 

Jake = Protected

Sven = Either way, but probably protected if continues trending right way and can avoid "injury prone" status

Goldy = Probably

Twins = Long gone

Loui = NMC becomes NTC, so most definitely exposed if still around

Gagner = UFA prior to XDraft

Granlund = Probably exposed if still around

Gaunce = Doesn't matter, couple years to decide....if he's still around

Any UFA's = still room for protection.

 

All our other prospects will be exempt....worked out good that Dahlen went to Sweden as he'll be a "2 year Pro" and exempt.

rotect

Still think we look good for the Seattle Expansion Draft. Only a few "Must Protect" guys, a few "Could Protect" and and bunch of "Doesn't Really Matter" guys. I'm not worried. More than enough room to protect Gaudette.

Pros and cons on him playing both NHL and AHL for this season?

 

i for one really wanna see if he will fit in like donato in the bigs but would also like to see him go on a deep playoff run with Utica but that is not guaranteed either 

 

thoughts...?
