Chicago and Detroit like hard working skill guys. Both of those teams believe in the AHL as a prime developing ground. Duncan Keith spent 2 full seasons in the AHL. Its a simple formula. Keep your picks. Scout. Draft. Develop. Its not complicated. Sometimes you need a little patience. Edmonton finishes last and gets high picks. Then they sign those players to 7 year contracts worth over $40M before their entry level contracts are over. That's not a winning formula. Buffalo gave Myers a ridiculous contract. Then Pegulla decides to sign Ehrhoff and Leino to big contracts. Buffalo is the worst team in the league and its not close.
