Ending up in Charlotte is fairly auspicous. While, yes, it DOES mean that there is a chance that they still make usefull NHLers, HOWEVER not being good enough to make an AHL team does not usually bode well for your future. It's not like these guys are from juniors (except Liffiton), wheras one can make the youth excuse if they are young enough. They are not.
By and large, most "prospects" that are not good enough for the AHL, but are good enough for the ECHL wind up like Jeff Ulmer. Good enough to play with men in a lesser league, but not anywhere good enough to get a sniff of the NHL.
