Ok I see that now. But I still don't understand the point. Even if he was selected in the draft he still wouldn't be under contract, right?
If he gets taken then he will likely get resigned because Seattle will have more than enough cap space to resign him. + he is going to be one of Seattle’s best players if he isn’t already they’re best player. (If he gets taken )
i mean then it becomes a what if scenario. theres no guarantee he signs with the islanders if they protect him and theres no guarantee he signs with seattle if they dont. hes a unrestricted free agent. kinda how that goes.
