Very happy to have Boston as Providence's affiliate for multiple reasons on and off the ice and making money as a franchise.

Hard to say who I'd want if it wasn't Boston, but the teams I wouldn't want are Phoenix, Tampa and New Jersey. Always seems to be a lot of turmoil or just not caring with those clubs at this level. Florida for years now doesn't even seem to have an "organization" in the minors.....so toss them in.

I don't think drafting high means that much. Sure you get that blue chip prospect who can really put up big numbers, but he's gonna get promoted quick because too many teams can't resist the urge to give him NHL icetime. There are plenty of good guys who are taken in the third, fourth and fifth rounds that can excel at the AHL level and will be down here awhile to develop if you've got a smart GM running the parent club.
