In my opinion the best use of the AHL is when you've got a forward with top 6 potential or a defenseman with top 4 potential and either there's no room in the pro team's top 6 or top 4 or they are not ready you send them to the AHL. They get the 20 minutes a night playing on the top line or top pairing instead of being the 7th D or a scoring forward playing on the 4th line. But if they have the skill to play with the big boys they should, worst case scenario you send them to the AHL for more seasoning if it doesn't work.

I also think Matthias will be a lock, but Frolik might need some time in Rochester though.

Glad we won't be sharing a farm team.
