It seems like management (not the coaching staff) has been on the hunt for AHL players. They've have given several tryouts to ECHL players and some college players, they've given their junior players a shot, signed Kristo after his season ended and brought Collberg over from Europe for a look see. They even tried to bring Nygren over.
I am not sure if the team is evaluating these players on 3-4 game tryouts so they have a better talent pool to choose from next year but it seems obvious that Hamilton has become a bigger priority.
With a couple of players graduating from junior and college ranks along with a year of experience for the returning players and perhaps a veteran or two, the Bulldogs should be much more competitive and the player development should improve (hopefully)
