If paying closer attention to the AHL the last few years has taught me anything it is that there is a LOT of value in having an NHL quality backup as the starter for your AHL team. It gives your AHL team a chance to win every night and it gives your NHL club a quality callup option when the inevitable injuries happen.

In other words, you want a proven guy as your #1 in the AHL, not a developmental player.
