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?

If another team claims him on waivers, doesn't he have to be placed on their active NHL roster?  Or can you claim someone and assign them to the AHL?

Ya I can't believe how stupid soccer is. I mean why do All the rules have to make sense?

Just look at that smart sport like hockey, 2 points for a regulation win, but somehow it becomes 3 points if it's in overtime!!

 

Well, you're thinking about this the wong way... think of it as a +2/+1 thing.  Win in regulation and you get two points over your opponent... OT = 1.

Just finished reading the Harry Potter series.  All seven books in 10 days... I get totally engulfed and spend hours and hours at a time reading, my fiancee hates it.  Going through and re-reading Angels & Demons, DaVinci Code, The Lost Symbol, Deception Point, and Digital Fortress.  I JUST found out he released a followup to the Langdon series, Inferno, last year.  So I'll read D.P. and D.F. (they aren't in the series, they are totally different characters) and then roll through the other four.  I tell ya, DaVinci Code is his most famous, but Angels & Demons blows it and all others out of the water.  That was an incredible adventure with excitement, fear, puzzles, heartache, etc. etc.  Definitely the #2 book I've ever read (H.P. is #1 for me).

I'm going to go with Stephen Weiss...................  Five years was four too long for a guy with a number of minor injuries throughout his career, one major injury leading into FA, and brought on to replace a guy who was at worst his equal.
