My thought was that those two young men were never really developed properly.

Nice try but I didn't label them that, those two players did that on their own. They were two prospects that failed to develop. Strange...that has never happened to any other team before - just the IceDogs? Check London's 2018 and 2019 1st round picks. Maybe they should pick up their sock too? Or maybe there are other teams that should pick up their sock too? Or is just the IceDogs?

The Soo has been very good at drafting & developing players for a number of years now. I think this is a good move by the Soo and also a great opportunity for Billy C . With proper coaching \ structure it could work out for both the Greyhounds and Billy.

"an non prospect"
" a foot note"

Your words, not mine.

Weird though, a team like the Soo that has a history and is known for developing players was willing to give up three decent draft picks for "a non prospect".

The Icedogs got more for Ham and McPherson - who were far less of a prospect (and older) than Billy C. That speaks to the return.

Hahaha. I have never met him - shook Bill Jr and Bill Sr hand once a few years ago. And Moseby, Upshaw and Barfield missed the team bus on getaway day and asked me for a ride to the airport
