Just playing Devil's Advocate, but a couple questions:

1. Why would all the Russians want to spend two-three years in the AHL when there's more money in the KHL?

2. How would you replace the assets given up and have prospects accept the fact that they are lower in the totem pole than Wellman, Gillies and company?

3. Hasn't treating first and second rounders like they are special been one of the major issues why Minnesota is in the position they are in?
