Or it could be the fact that Kings management want the players that are already in Manchester to right that ship. Frankly, that team was playing better when they were depleted than they are now that everyone is coming back. There is enough disruption to the chemistry of this team already, and having the influx of junior players isn't going to help. The Monarchs need to find some chemistry with the players they already have. I don't think being assigned to the ECHL at this time of the year is a slam on Teubert at all. He's had a very good year, and for people to jump to conclusions based on what they think is proper is ridiculous. We are now a deep organization, and we will continue to see prospects assigned to Ontario. Plus it's much easier for Nelson Emerson or Mike O'Connell to take a drive down the 10 freeway to see these prospects play live, and work with them on their development program for the summer.
