    Leading scorer in the WHL playoffs at the moment. His team did play all 7 games so he's got an advantage there but, still an accomplishment.

    Hope we see Spacek, Harkins and Gennaro with the Moose now that Connor and Roslovic were recalled.

    everyone's first go to pun for any Czech athlete

    Fortunately the moose have that weird random 2 game stretch against Cleveland I think on the 13th and 14th of April which gives some time to get Spacek, Gennerro, Harkins sorted out.

    Central scouting had him as the 5th highest ranked European skater.

    He's not listed on the Octagon site (Walsh is not the only Octagon agent)

    Looks like his agency is Newport Sports(Craig Oster?)

    Looks like he can get into three or four games before the Moose season ends.

    Hmmm. So Harkins gets an ELC, Spacek only gets a Moose tryout. Are the Jets not as high on Spacek? Or is Spacek holding out, maybe thinking of going UFA? I think this warrants further discussion.

    Why do players use agents for elc and ato? It's a fairly simple negotiation. Relatively.

    Harkins signed a pretty standard ELC for a second round pick. He also has nowhere else to play and from the Jets point of view the clock was ticking towards June 1.Spacek being a 4th rd pick would typically see a lower AAV. He (Newport) is probably trying to argue his performance warrants more than what us typically offered to a 4th rd pick. He also has an option to return home and play pro hockey. The Jets also don't have the June 1 deadline with Spacek.

    I expect Spacek to be signed soon as well.

    When is soonest Spacek could go to UFA? If its a year still then I wouldn't be too worried. Good sign he is playing with the Moose.

    Okay yeah then I agree. Could see him wanting to bargain for a bit more. Deserves it IMO.

    I would say Spacek deserves the same ELC that Harkins got. I would say a plurality on this board would put Spacek ahead of Harkins in prospect rankings

    Where a player is drafted matters as far as ELC contracts go. There is an accepted hierarchy.
