Well, I do believe that the Penguins' front office wants to give the WBS fans a winner. The WBS Penguins were the organizations' money maker during the lean years recently. I believe that in that regards the Penguins make an attempt to make certain that WBS has a competitive team that the fans will want to see. Plus their player development strategy seems to work well with veterans to show the prospects what they need to learn to become NHL players. I am certain that all NHL teams try to do this with their AHL affiliates, but because of the financial history, i think Pittsburgh makes a concerted effort to do so.
