It's a bit of a cliche, but it's a playstyle thing as well. Some career AHLers may have more overall talent (offensive talent, specifically) than guys on the lower rungs of NHL teams, but they're missing one thing (defensive acumen, speed, etc) that those 4th liners do have, which makes them ineffective in the bigs.
