LOL Desrosiers re-signed to a 1-year-2-way.
That Hanzal's so hurt right now.

And why is that an lol? No risk, he played decent at his level. Not saying he'll be a NHL regular, but you need people to play at the various levels.

Because I had such high hopes for him.
And here he is getting the ol’ 1-year-2-way.

Another Nill draft pick is being put on the slow development track. Jason Robertson will be spending a fourth season in the OHL.

Sorry, Knives.

That's a bit unfair. The kid literally turned 19 yesterday. Playing juniors in the OHL is more than likely the right place for him to be. You say "spending a fourth season in the OHL" like it is a bad thing. Look at it the other way - he started playing in the OHL when he was 15. You don't do that unless you have talent. Not saying he's the next McDavid, just that the perspective is a little more nuanced than what you might think.

Hmmm(m).

A 4th year of major junior can be pretty telling sometimes.
Most projected 1st rounders usually make the jump to at least the AHL after 3.

Well, at least he'll still look exactly the same as he does now in a decade when he starts to get 4th line minutes on our garbage team.

He's not eligible to play in the AHL until the teams junior season is over next spring.
So only options are NHL roster, Europe or back to OHL.

We need to bring him to the NHL now so I can start complaining about how he was rushed instead.

I think the 2018 fourth rounder that told Tallon to go eat a scab sandwich is going to make some waves in the prospect system.

That would be nice. The Stars could use a break. Other than winning the draft lotto, draft picking has been rough business.

But it will be interesting to see if many guys follow his path of refusing to sign with the team who drafted them. I bet if there are more who go that route we will see GMs come together and agree to punish these guys by giving them bare minimum ELC offers after they are re-drafted.

Wouldn’t that be collusion? Hard to prove, I guess.

Cecconi’s rights expire Aug 2019 as he’s playing his senior season at Michigan. Not sure what he plans to do but could go to UFA. He seems like a Methot type. He’s been steady at UM and in international play.
