And do you know Barkov is willing to play in the AHL?
I didn't say years, I said elite forwards generally do not play in the AHL period. Kane, Toews, Crosby, Malkin, Stamkos, etc, none of those guys were AHL players, ever. Look through the top scorers in the league to see if they played in the AHL.
If you draft MacKinnon or Druion, they cannot play in the AHL next year, if their not in the NHL they have to be returned to their junior team. Does that stop you from drafting them? Or is it just because the KHL is overseas?
Again, I have no problem with a guy saying he doesn't want to play in a lesser league than he plays in now and the AHL is a lesser league than the KHL.
Is it really the AHL or the arrogance that you have a problem with?
It's the attitude and writing on the wall that screams problem. Especially on a team like the Preds.
