For most teams in the AHL this is a much tougher league to play in. Are we one of those teams? Well, the top scorer in the FEL is fighting with the top scorers in the CHL and Division I for a permanent spot in our AHL team's top 6. We have the top goaltender in the SEL fighting for starts with a gold medal winning goalie from team Russia. If there is something abnormal about the AHL this year, teams like ours are it. That's not even getting into our blue line, which as you've seen, has a couple of ridiculous talents on it. Most of our opponents this year are going to have to win an uphill battle against us. We on the other hand have to not lose a downhill battle.

If we were playing against OKC and Houston every night, Holland would have a case for playing in a tougher league. As it currently stands, he has it far easier than Bonino did last season in Syracuse.
