I wonder why King couldn't stick with the Canucks.

In his rookie (and only) season, he scored 12 goals and 21 points in 47 games. When he was in the AHL, he was always around a PPG.

I am thinking that with th depth that team has up front there was probably no room for him.

St. Johns will have a good team and they certainly have some vets there to bring along the young guys and help them mature as pros.

I remember back in 2003 when King went on that big hot steak and potted most of those 12 goals, he looked like he was going to be something. If my memory is correct there, I just remember him scoring goals at a pretty good rate for a bit of time.

If I'm an Ice Cap fan I'm thrilled with the job and commitment by TNSE.

That's true. To have an NHL management team so dedicated to it's minor league affiliate, gotta love that. Plus, it goes hand in hand with the franchise model and philosophies TNSE stands for and has dedicated itself to. We're going to draft and develop our own talent, so we'll be without a doubt using St. Johns to the very max.

I love it, personally.

TNSE would do well to adopt the attitude Nashville has taken to their farm system, which is that of "The road to Nashville goes through Milwaukee."

I'm going to refrain making a judgement on the Winnipeg system until they ice a product. Really all I'm seeing right now is the replacement of one set of AHL names with another. Really the only way we're going to be able to tell anything about the AHL club is if in February and march, if Machacek, Holzapfel, Kulda, Chiarot and the like are showing more signs of progress. Granted this is Chiarot's first year of AHL level hockey, but the other prospect pool members should show signs of progress and not being stuck behind AHL hot shots.

things got so bad with the relationship between Atlanta and Chicago that Dudley was sending AHL players to ECHL Gwinnett to develop because Chicago was only intersted in their bottom line.

I think TNSE is goign about it he right way, but I think it would be best to hold judgement for a while.

that being said, King isn't a bad signing. Always felt he was an AHL/NHL tweener. He'll have a better chance to stick with Winnipeg, but he'll need to prove himself. Worst case scenario, he's tack on material for a trade and a good player for St. johns

The already well known positive with TNSE and their strong work in the AHL is how they have managed to put Canucks prospects into the NHL - Kesler, Burrows, Raymond, Schneider, Edler, Bieksa, Hansen, Bolduc, Rypien, etc.

They've got a really nice track record and resume here of developing and putting Canucks prospects into the NHL. Granted, now it's time to draft our own and not rely on Vancouver, but we should do well, I think.

TSNE is doing this because they know first-hand the significance that successful happy AHL teams have on their NHL clubs. They know as an AHL franchise how important is to keep the cupboards stocked and the domino effect it has at the NHL level.
