I referenced Atkinson and Palmieri because those were two of the big achievers last year in the AHL, and both joined the national team. I was asking if there were any comparable AHL players blowing up with American passports, this year.

I think it all depends on the defection level which is likely to be high. Frankly I'd rather take a group of young players than some low ceiling European based players if the NHL guys so no. Certainly I'd rather take guys like Emerson Etem over Ryan Lasch.
Etem will definitely be with the Ducks. He hasn't quite locked down a job here completely, but he's pretty close to doing that.
