In Topic: Wings sign Defenseman Joe Hicketts to Entry Level Contract.

I've not seen him play but an 18 year old who goes undrafted and then earns an ELC 3 months later must be doing something right. Adds depth to GR/Toledo and who knows could be a great find. It's not like a minor league ELC breaks the bank, always worth a punt.

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.  

I'm sure it's only for unsigned first round draft picks

That's how these contracts go. Over payment at the start, bargains by the end. 

Sums up my feelings exactly, a contract that he can grow in to. Also retain his rights beyond end of contract, big 3 years ahead for him and wings!
Also, we should use this as a guide for the type of money Gus stands to earn in the off-season next year. Would guess he'd earn more.

What is this?

In Topic: Dekeyser signed. 2 yrs $2.187 million AAV

I'd be very surprised if we sign either of these guys for more than $2M per year, look at Smith and Nyquists' contracts over the last two years as a guide.
