The AHL is different from the NHL. It's played at a far slower pace, one of the reasons Zuccarello is so successful there. His lack of speed doesn't hinder him in the minors like it would and has done in the NHL. Also, the difference is leagues in terms of talent is quite large.
I don't really know the style the Whale play, to be honest. I remember hearing they prepare the defenseman on the Whale to play the style the Rangers' D plays, but I'm not sure of the system they have put into place.
