This. It's very difficult to play in AHL. A lot of NHL players who went back to AHL couldn't adjust to hockey. Players don't know their positions, a second slow in passing, not skilled enough to play through.
Look at majority of players who played in NHL first then went back to AHL. You'll see their numbers. Keeping in mind, it's a development league, other players get a chance at PP, PK, and 5 on 5.
I cringed tonight every time the Sens dumped the puck in our zone knowing no one can skate it out. Even Liles scratched. Over, Holzer and Kostka..
