After watching several games of AHL this season I have to say that I'm surprised by how pathetic the hockey over there is. Sure it's more physical than the Euro leagues but the teams have basically no defensive systems at all and the offence is mostly dump and chase too. And this is supposed to be extremely good AHL because of the lockout! The worst professional league I've ever witnessed. I mean the skill level of players over there might normally be close to SM-Liiga but the hockey itself is far behind (I was one of those who thought that AHL might be a better league than SM-Liiga before this season) .

Komarov is now familiar with the small-rink hockey and the physicality will never be a problem for him in NA. So it's not a surprise that he left for a better league where he will most likely get paid at least 10 times more.
