The talent pool only runs so deep. I hear the same thing about the AHL call-ups to the NHL. Somebody posted about a year ago that Milwaukee had no players worthwhile to call up to Nashville. I pointed out that 75% of the Preds roster had played in Milwaukee. There are about 5 or 6 guys who have made the jump since then. Roman Josi has played on the 1st or 2nd defensive pairing, sort of replacing Suter. Pretty darn good for a bum from Milwaukee!

Congrats to the ECHL and their teams, keep up the good work! I know that Milwaukee had 3 D-men called up from Cincinnati. They played quite well. Anthony Bitetto is staying with the Admirals.
