I saw Ziggy Palffy as a 20-YO in the AHL. He was totally lost and looked like he would never be a pro. On the current Islander team, Trent Hunter had a undistinguished AHL start to his career. And, both of those guys struggled in a lower quality AHL. This year's version of the AHL is chock full of player who would be in the NHL if not for the lockout.
