I'm thinking hockey needs to get away from the baseball nomenclature for it's various minor-league levels. "AA" makes no sense in a sport where "A" is a laughable concept.

Yes, I realize that in minor-league hockey, "AA" has come to mean a relatively stable/solvent sub-AHL league while "A" has come to symbolize those leagues not necessarily stable nor solvent, but trying to explain that "A" essentially means a bankrupt, no-chance league in hockey, rather than merely a fourth-tier competitive level, has generally gotten me looks as if I had two heads. It makes no sense to most people.
