Not really true. ND, Vey, and Czarnik (Berube as well but that's ECHL) are the only ones in camp with a full year of AHL pro experience under their belts. The others have all spent only a handful of games in Manchester or none at all and that is a huge advantage when it comes to understanding of the game and especially understanding of the Kings style of play which is something that seemed to be a focus at the dev. camp. So while Vey, and ND may not have an advantage age wise they still have a pretty big advantage over the others that were in camp.

Think of it this way, these are drills that the Monarchs and possibly Kings put players through on a fairly regular basis. So there should be an amount of familiarity, and comfort with these drills for the guys that run through them often versus a player running through it for possibly the first time. Basically I expect these guys to be at the top of class because they are familiar with the drills and the skills on display are something they work on frequently.
