I think each player is different and good communication from the coaches could make the road between AHL and NHL easier. A guy like Paajarvi is a perfect example who someone who used the AHL as a tool.

I hope the team isn't pencilling him in already. Go get a Streit and try to add another top 4 guy through trade and if Klefbom impresses in camp, then make a deal from a position of strength.
