It wouldn't be a bad thing for Ross, or whoever is cut, to go dominate or at least play against adults. A lot better than going back to Junior to be honest.
Yes, I was reading this morning the Oilers are going to be pushing some AHL players down due to RNH, Eberle, MPS and Hartikainen all being on their club.

The same is going to hold true for other clubs.

Additionally, I'm speculating that they won't be taking a salary hit being demoted to the ECHL and will want to play rather than sit on a bench and cheerlead.


Desjardins estimates that about 40% of the game is captured by Corsi analysis.
