It doesnt make much sense.
I guess I can see what you mean but if everybody is satisfied right now with the working conditions in the AHL, it doesn't do much wrong and it does some good.

I guess the first thing for me is, I would like to know more about how the AHL usually works as far as salaries are concerned. Who pays the players that are NHL property usually?
