Stacked AHL Teams

I've noticed a few Senators fans think the Bingo team is a lot deeper due to the NHL lockout has sent guys like Cowen/Silf/Zib down to our AHL team. I can't help to think that some teams around the league have got even better talent down in the A due to the lockout. What're your farm teams looking like?

The Barons for sure.

Apart from RNH, Eberle and Justin Schultz, they've got 2011-12 AHL top goaltender Yann Danis, AHL all-star Alex Plante on D, a myriad of reliable veterans like Josh Green and Dane Byers, and lots more young guys including Paajarvi, Hartikainen and Teubert.

They were already the second best team last season. Can't imagine what they'll be like this season.

Meh. Marlies beat them in 5.

Last I checked; the playoff finalists are the two best teams. A team that was beat by one of them on the way to the finals; is hardly better.

You're probably going by season standings; the Marlies were only 3 points back. I think beating the Barons 4-1 in the playoffs more than makes up for that.

Insert your excuses now...

They aren't the same teams at all.. was Binghamton the best team last year? no because teams get better and worst every year. Did the Barons have rnh, hall and ebs last year? No they didn't

Well obviously everyone is talking about OKC but how many players is Norfolk returning and aren't they going to get Connolly and Namestnikov? Those are probably the two teams to watch right? People in AHL cities probably have a better idea.

No idea who's playing for the Monsters this year. The Avalanche haven't seen fit to tell us proles who's going to play in the AHL next season (though Landeskog isn't, sadly).

Spooner-Seguin-Knight would have been a killer first line if playoff games didn't count for the AHL waiver rule... Don't go too far past that, though.

If the Whale keep up their form from the playoffs, and some of the youth coming in pan out, they can be a contender

Will Oliver Ekman-Larsson be the best defender in the AHL this year?

Skinner and Faulk are going down to a Charlotte team that already has a lot of pseudo-NHL'ers like Boychuk, Sanguinetti, Dalpe and the ECHL's best goalie from last year in John Muse.

Habs don't have stars going down to Hamilton but Palushaj, Leblanc and Geoffrion will help the many youngsters who are turning pro, even though they're mostly defencemen.

That was last year.

With RNH,Eberle,J.Schultz, and Hall down the road the Marlies won't have a chance against OKC.

Second best regular season team then, happy now? Who are the Marlies adding;bringing back this year? Gardiner, Frattin, and who else?

OKC are basically Oilers light.

So I expect them to finish 30th overall.

But its seriously BS that Eberle is allowed to play in the AHL. There shouldn't be any NHL all-stars playing. RNH I can understand but Eberle should go to Europe.

Hall will get injured halfway, Schultz is equal to or less than Gardiner. The Marlies also have a few NHL ready players playing.

WBS was looking like a top-of-the-standings team before all of this...but not now. Too many professional rookies and not enough NHLers.

I get the impression that the Bulldogs will have a really hard time against a lot of teams this season, and IMO, it's the best thing that could happen to the plethora of young players we'll have there. I hope to eat crows though, that would be even better

I thought defense usually gets you further.
