I don't blame Pegula, anyway. I'm sure he's pretty hands off when it comes to the Amerks. Darcy Regier has never shown the ability to construct elite AHL teams. I don't count the lockout. Prior to that, the dominant late 90's teams were very much a product of when Donner still signed some players.
I can completely understand that POV.

The fact that they didn't sign an Asst GM that is the GM of the Amerks was one bad sign to me.

If they were about winning the Calder Cup as THE goal in Rochester, then they should hire someone like Jody as the Amerks GM and give that person the same resources that Regier has in Buffalo to build a winner.
