Opportunity for Sharks brass to see "rookie" players play against other rookies (start a little rivalry with conference opponents, too) rather than NHL/AHL players (who have more experience as it would be in exhibition/pre-season games).

If a player is a (pro) rookie then it's almost a given they'll participate.

If he's played a full AHL season, then no.
