Sens Underground Forums > Sens signing Cody Ceci to entry level contract

Curious if you folks have insight as to why organizations are signing entry levels right now - with that being a topic of chance brought up by owners. Is there a risk if they wait until after the CBA? Is this a sort of protection?

Just seems like if they raise entry level to 4-5 years one would be better to wait?

Thoughts or insight?

I wouldn't read too much into it. Teams are doing business as usual until further notice.

I am not a fan of the 5 year entry level contracts though, but understand why owners would want that - cheap labour!

the Sens don't want what happened to Anaheim and that weasel who signed with Edmonton so u sign these guys when u can.

now if he had signed with Ottawa I wouldn't be calling him a weasel but he didn't and I'm biased.

It's different with rookies vs. RFAs. Only risk is re-entering the draft, but that would be bad for him anyways
