This is why, as much as I respect the level of talent in the AHL, I can't get into it, it's a farm team that is just that, nothing from the team itself to make it exciting and a winner. It's all just about being a farm team and that's too bad because I've heard Andlauer is a good owner. The guy should try and move onto a team and league where they actually draft players and GM's etc. Sounds like he deserves that but maybe just doesn't have the wallet to be in such a situation. The AHL to me without acting like a real league, is simply high high level pond hockey.
When I go to London and talk to my folks there, the Knights are more like the Cats, who is going to be drafted, who the coach is recruiting etc. Hamilton deserves this for hockey I think.
The AHL is like ho hum, great players but just going through the motions and only in Hamilton because someone in Montreal says that's where you go. :?
