As for money, you are starting to see a lot of million dollar players in the AHL, I am talking about guys like Audette, Dykhuis, Czerkawski, Heinze, Timander and Joseph. So soon, in like 10 years, players in the AHL will be pair a lot too. Its sad...lol
Skill, size and strength is where I disagree with you. Its all there, look at Olvestad as an example, he was 4th line player who couldn't get many points in the NHL. Does the same in the AHL. Everything is the same.
Travel is perhaps the biggest
attendance is a big problem in some places.
I think the difference is experience, basically saying more mistakes.
As for the speed if you watch an AHL game, and watch an NHL game after. You will not notice a difference. Sorry, but Dagenais was just as slow as he is now, as to what he was in the AHL.
Its just interesting to see what people think the difference is.
