I think he is trying to show you that the quality of competition is the best in the AHL currently when comparing leagues to the NHL. The European leagues and KHL have larger ice surfaces and not nearly as much physical play because of it. That and there are quite a few excellent players in the AHL right now as well such as Brayden Schenn, Couturier, Sven Bartechi, just to name a few.

Just to show one example of how big a difference size of ice surface makes, Omark was abimsal in the NHL last season, not to mention the AHL. He is among the league leaders over in Europe with 39points IIRC.
