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

While I would never suggest the Aeros' top line of Zucker-Granlund-Coyle is more proven at the NHL level than OKC's, that top line was just as dominant before Granlund was injured, even against OKC, at the AHL level. Based on the use of the term "better" in your premise , I am curious what your support would be for one AHL line to be better than the other.
