It's not about the AHL, its about organizational depth.

Example: The kings could trade Jack Johnson for Carter because they had Voynov waiting in the wings. If we had a deeper farm...we would have a little room with making a deal to get some young talent in areas we are weak at. I don't know, I would certainly prefer we not have traded JVR for Schenn....while I like Schenn, he's not the better player in that deal.
