CHL Looking to Challenge AHL Transfer Rule

http://ca.sports.yahoo.com/juniorhoc...rhockey-265398


The CHL has approached the NHL on the rule that let's players drafted outside of the CHL, but later end up playing in the CHL, that these players are currently not held to the CHL rule that states a drafted prospect has to be 20 years old or have played 4 full seasons in order to leave the CHL for the AHL.

John Carlson was able to leave the CHL for the AHL at 19 because he wasn't drafted out of the CHL. How this could relate to the Habs is with Jarred Tinordi. Say things go really well for him in London this year, as it stands now, the Habs could sign him next summer and put him in Hamilton, but the CHL would like to put a stop to this.

Makes sense for the CHL I suppose, they want to keep their star import players for longer. I don't know why the NHL teams would want to allow it though.

I guess it can't hurt to have your cake and want to eat it too. But is there any give and take they can offer up? Don't see what.

It's a losing battle. It's player development over CHL product. NHL and AHL teams have the obvious preference. While I do understand where CHL is coming from, kind of a ***** if a player is ready for AHL, but not NHL, what's he do? Stay forced in the CHL?

Part of the battle going on involves Jeremy Morin for the Rangers in the OHL. He was signed in April before the draft, so the Rangers position is that he was drafted out of the CHL

Interesting to note though that John Carlson was signed in June by the Knights but was deemed drafted from the USHL

So, the hair splitting is, "where were these guys drafted from"? If from the CHL they can't play in the AHL as a 19 year old. If from outside the CHL, they can play in the AHL

Would have been a different London team last year with Carlson, Del Zotto and Tavares going into the playoffs

Anyway, now they are trying to redefine things to "clarify" I guess is the tactful way to say, jockeying for control of 19 yr old players

**** the CHL. They are the reason Lats wasn't able to develop properly (play in the AHL as a 18 and 19 year old), and are the reason 16 year old kids are having their careers ruined being on the wrong side of vicious hits by men in their 20s...

If they put a rule because of that, players will just sign their CHL contract after the draft...they will have a hard time in this case...

CHL is 60-ish money-grubbing hacks across Canada keeping kids in the CHL longer than they should so they can make money off of them. European goalies get to play in the pros by 18 or so, ours have to wait until 20.
