Talents that would usually have been called up on their 2ND contract year had the luxury of playing longer in the AHL. That certainly helped a lot.
He said that 03 draft talent benefited from playing in the AHL in 04-05 when there was a lockout. I said they were to young to be in the AHL that year because they would have still had a year of junior eligibility left. How many starts from that draft were already in the NHL and thus were able to be sent to the AHL? Also if they were in the NHL right after their draft year I assume they would have been pretty good anyway.
