Reality is that there are multiple leagues that are better than the AHL, so that would make it weak.
It's not incredibly weak, but it is weaker than other men's leagues out there.
It's not like it's the #2 league in the world behind the NHL (or even #3 or #4,) so comparing the Girgensons situation to European players developing Europe isn't really fair.

The best players usually move on fairly quickly and you're left with old guys that can't hack it in the NHL and are average to below average in Europe and depth prospects for the most part.
