I think the common ingredient is right there, "until they hit the ahl". Something has been off with our process over the years. They are either rushed right in or stall in the ahl. So few spend a year or two then play big roles. Dwyer and bellemore are the big successes right now and neither were expected to make it over the prospects they've climbed over. Of all the dmen we had lined up....bellemore? Who cares, we'll take him but we could use some more consistency out of that process and have needed it for years. Consistent role players out of the ahl can help keep the costs down. Actual productive players developed internally can change the face of a team.
