For instance Weber and Suter played crappy against the kids because of this. Now all of a sudden these kids are in the AHL, with very little protection. There's no Horcoff to save the day in a pinch and Eager is nowhere to be found. These kids are now going up against the top players in the AHL every night just like they did in the NHL.... uh, but since they are not being over protected... wait a second.......... Anyways my point is, they are not leading the league in points so they are not as good as we think they are. No records=no good.
