I'm not a fan of signing AHL "guys" - let the kids play and see what we've got.
You need AHL vets to offset the younger guys. This is a good thing. Plus there is a rule in the AHL that you can only dress a certain number of veterans. I think it's 8 but it might be 6, i'm not sure, go ask in the Hershey Bears thread on the Caps forum. They know about the "veteran scratch".
