Hockey's not hockey anywhere...

my personal preference is for him to play in Hartford, with many other NYR hopefuls - get to know and bond on the road with the guys he hopefully will play with over the next several years. If it wasn't Hartford, I wouldn't have minded a better league, Sweden, Finland, Czech, Slovakia, etc., but I assume he doesn't have the credentials for them. Italy though? Great place to be for the coaching staff to monitor his progress. If the season begins in January, he could lose-out to guys playing in Hartford. The AHL should be quite competitive this season with the lockout. Jamie's just trying to ensure he gets his money in case something happens. That's fine and dandy and those are his priorities, but I believe his development furthers best in Hartford. But again, it's about the money...
