Maybe, but I seem to recall the Aeros beating the Barons 4/5 times this year. The Wild's unproven prospects are doing pretty well against the Oilers proven prospects so far...
Your guys also beat, Jordan "heres the puck' Henry and Alex "why cant I skate" Plante.

You AHL depth players are better then OKC's but very few will see the NHL (3/4th liners that is). The players that will play in the NHL are doing extremely well. Do I care if a 3/4th liner on an AHL team is better then another 3/4th liner on another team. I couldnt care less.
The OKC barons were a top team last year, but an AHL teams success rarely fully translates to NHL success.

If your AHL 1st line was better than ours then yes its significant because those are legit prospects. Not 29 year old hatchet men.

That is why the AHL debate has no traction
