On the other hand, some AHL/ECHL tweeners like Antoine Roussel, Jon Landry, Brandon DeFazio, Blair Riley, Kevin Henderson and Matt Clackson were able to land NHL contracts.

In some cases (Sterling, Taffe), it's about money. They might loose the chance to play a few games in the NHL but they'll make much more "AHL money"

For the rest, I guess they either had limited options or maybe they just waited too long.
