Because that's what I was going for.
I've always been wary of the former IHL franchises because they seem to run themselves as if they weren't an NHL farm club, but as if they were an independent club like they were in the IHL. Chicago does it as does Utah. I do believe Houston and Grand Rapids operate by similar ideals as well. Milwaukee seems to do the best job of incorporating the younger players into their lineup out of the old IHL clubs. It's a question I always wondered about, but never bothered asking anywhere. Hay may be a bad coach as you say; I don't rightly know one way or the other. But, I've always assumed the old IHL teams operate differently than the regular AHL teams anyway.
