Fair point. The NHL is just a different animal. Etem is clearly still learning to play against men, and the learning curve is just so much steeper in the NHL. If his physical conditioning isn't enough to give him a significant edge in the AHL, I'm not sure how it would help his chances in the NHL. If Etem were a year older, with a year of pro hockey under his belt, it might be different.
