most likely AHL bound with Tselios, Helmer, Schutte, Bezina, Knayzev and Spiller giving the Falcons 7 D for 5 playing spots. Most AHL teams go with 5 D, some go with 6 D as they only play with a 19 man roster so I don't get this one. Someone already posted that Springfield have 3 veteran Defensemen signed to PTO's unless they already have those 3 destined for the east coast league.

Like I said before, why did we just not save the money on all these fringe signings and kept Teppo? The salaries and bonus money must be about equal to what Teppo would have cost us to keep him with the Yotes by now.

Depth cannot be overlooked. All strong teams have outstanding depth so when injuries happen, there is another able body to step in.

Also, competition for playing time (even a spot in the lineup) is condusive to a team playing at its best.
