While I'm happy for the kid doesn't this mean we have 1 less draft pick or list spot?
I would of preferred if he stayed on the Category B rookie while giving us more flexibility with our drafting and DFA choice's.
Correct me if I'm wrong
Stupid idea! We can now play him whenever we want...no restrictions unlike other rookies.
I thought there isn't any restrictions on him anyway? didn't realize the same rules applied. Still I find it weird he only got the 1 year figured if you are gonna promote him then at least 2 years is what he deserves on form and improvement.
Reason why I figured it was a waste was because I thought we could play him whenever. I had no idea he can only play because of Long term injuries or getting promoted half way through season( as per normal rookies)
