I would've liked the wings to get him. Hayes> cleary and alfie

Alfie is a future hall of famer. Even at 40 he scored 18 goals and 49pts in 68 games. A player who hasn't played a game in the NHL and had 1 really good year in college hockey is better than him? That's a big leap of faith to me.

Well, in the long run...

I know, right?

Does anyone know why they get a second? Seems to me like the league is giving them one just to give them one. Did Anaheim get a third I'm unaware of for not signing Schultz? This just seems like a stupid and generally unfair way of rewarding a team for losing.

And if it's in the cba, why aren't more people waiting to sign picks? If you don't sign someone you get a free pick a round later than you took them in? Who here wouldn't have taken a third over Emmerton? Or if Frk keeps up his poor play I'd have been thrilled to get a third for him.

This whole them getting a second and nobody saying why or complaining seems fishy. I don't like it.

Not positive but I think it might be only college players because you are forced to wait to sign them if you want them to keep playing college.

Yes, it's because he elected to go to college still after signing an ELC. So the guy never truly ever played for the Blackhawks, that's why they get a pick back. And instead of thinking about it in current terms, think about it this way: If your first round draft pick doesn't sign and plays college hockey for four years, we'll give you a second round pick back... five years later.

Doesn't sound so glorious now, does it?

On Tuesday, various outlets (see here and here andhere and here) reported that Hayes — the former Boston College standout taken 24th overall by Chicago at the ’10 draft — has agreed to sign with the New York Rangers, ending a long, drawn-out saga in the process.

Yup. Rangers made the finals. Better sign with them because they are clearly the team to beat :rolleyes:

I think it makes sense.... he has a chance to make the roster/play with a former teammate, and they're a playoff team.

signing with the rangers basically combines the benefits of both calgary and boston.

I just wonder if he'll end up living up to the hype of the "Hayes Sweepstakes" ha
