Calculated risk but less risk than signing a 14 y.o. D. Young. 2 million is not a big risk if he turns out to be an allstar. He is already killing it against top 17+ year olds. He will be drafted probably #1 or close to it. Worst case scenario just an average NHL player. If he becomes a John Tavares instead of Crosby still probably worth it. In tennis unless you are winning slams or are top 10 you are nothing from a media standpoint.
