And you honestly believe that taking a lineup like that would beat a Kings lineup that has:

Conroy
Frolov
Straka
Robitaille
Klatt
Belanger
Avery
Armstrong
Pirnes
Cowan
Norstrom
Visnovsky
Miller
Dempsey
Quintal
Corvo
Cechmanek

I mean, the Monarchs' roster is talented and full of a lot of very good inexperienced, talented players, but they still have a long way to go before you can say that they would compete with an NHL level squad... The Kings defense alone would kill the Monarchs... Then add on guys like Conroy, Straka, Frolov and Robitaille and it would be a joke... I mean, the Kings roster isn't stellar, but it would easily win a game over the Monarchs roster... The only advantage the Monarchs would have would be in net...

Do you honestly think that a defense of Gleason, Grebeshkov, Milam, Nolan, Rullier, and Weaver could handle established NHL level forwards? It would be a masacre...

I'd go with Bridgeport since their goaltending is excellent and their coach excels at teaching whoever is on the team how to play the trap more effectively than the Parent team does.

Wouldn't say they'd be exciting, but they could be better than a handful of NHL teams.

Some of the people in this thread are absolutely out of their minds.

I don't know if an allstar AHL team could make the playoffs as an NHL team.
