As everyone knows, we didn't offer Alan Quine a contract before June 1st, so he was eligible to re-enter this years draft. He was picked up by the Islanders and attended their training camp this week and showed off some pretty slick moves in the shootout...

I thought for sure we were going to give this kid a contract but I guess management just didn't see the potential. I still think we should have given him a shot and let someone else go, there were options in someone like Parkes, Coetzee or Raedeke...

 

I'm not saying Quine ever had or has the potential to be a big time player in the NHL but to me, he definitely has a lot more potential then the other guys I listed, younger with more upside in my opinion. Well it wouldn't be the first player let go and it won't be the last, I just hope this one doesn't come to bite them in the @ss.

 

Players that re-enter the draft and turn out to become full-time impact NHLers aren't that plentiful but there are a few. Some of these players include...

 

Craig Anderson (drafted #77 in 1999 by Calgary and then re-drafted #73 in 2001 by Chicago)

Nick Boynton (drafted #9 in 1997 by Washington and then re-drafted #21 in 1999 by Boston)

Tim Brent (drafted #37 in 2002 by Anaheim and then re-drafted #75 in 2004 again by Anaheim)

Matthew Lombardi (drafted #215 in 2000 by Edmonton and then re-drafted #90 in 2004 by Calgary)

Nathan Paetsch (drafted #58 in 2001 by Washinton and then re-drafted #202 in 2003 by Buffalo)

Jarret Stoll (drafted #46 in 2000 by Calgary and then re-drafted #36 in 2002 by Edmonton)

Mike Zigomanis (drafted #64 in 1999 by Buffalo and then re-drafted #46 in 2001 by Carolina)

 

Maybe Quine will turn out to be a Lombardi or Stoll for the Islanders. I personally, wish the kid the best of luck and hope Kenny regrets letting him walk... :glare:

 

I did actually take the time to read your actual post and just went to re-read it a second time. I still don't see an actual point or a fact would even make me think that he would be as good as your stating. I mean all you did was post players name that have been successful with there careers after being re-drafted. As you did say it's very few ... what makes you think that he will be as good or close to be as good as they did. Just comparing him to other types of players doesn't make me believe he can be as good better or worst. 

 

Now it could be possible that we might of let one walk away and it's as possible that we didn't lose anything as well. 

 

I'm not arguing the fact that you think he can or can't play, all I'm saying is instead of actually judging his potential by his situation & some shootout goals bring in some stats or real facts.

 

Unfortunately you've got nothing to back up that we've lost out on him.

 

You are of course entitled of your opinion but at least base your opinions on some facts instead of shootout goals.

You can't be really serious right? Just cause he showed some slow motions highlights when the goalie wasn't even trying ... ?
