You can twist it anyway you want. AHL coaches are the ones most often tapped to be NHL head coaches. When an NHL coach fails, you've got to go somewhere for new talent.

No offense .... but this is just silly logic honestly. How is any different than a good AHL player getting called up to the NHL only to find out he can't hang in the top league. That happens ... all the time. You don't reinvent the wheel because one prospect can't make the jump and never use the AHL development path again.

It's absurd. Of course being a top coach in the AHL is going to make you a top candidate for an NHL job. Yeah that doesn't guarantee future NHL success, but it sure doesn't mean you pause before hiring the next top AHL coach.
