What advantage is it to DM to have a prospect learn under another's philosophy then when he gets to the AHL that is not what Edwards wants said prospect to learn.... the goal is for Portland to play the style Phoenix plays....
That's not true Hutch.... Portland will have it's own style just as whoever the new ECHL affiliate will be will have "it's" own style. It's no different than when Buffalo or Anaheim were affiliated with the Pirates. Dinnen coached his style, which was not drastically different, but it was different.
Each club will take the players they are give and make the best out of the situation.
