The IceCaps will probably struggle for awhile but grooming the new guard is not a bad thing. An added bonus will be that Pasquale will see a ton of pucks.
How do you know the bolded is the case, though? To me it looks like players accepting better contracts and more playing time, i.e. their decision not the Jets.
