You do realize the marlies were missing all their stars due to injuries? and anyways norfolk was the clear favourites.

Nope. But he was assigned to the AHL prior to the Sept 15 deadline so it wasn't required that he be on the clear day list.

Hall will eventually become healthy. He also has a two-way contract. However, he was neither on the 2012 clear day list nor finished last season in the AHL.

I cannot think of any mechanism by which Hall will be allowed to be sent down to the AHL, which is kind of silly because he's waiver-exempt and it would be in everyone's best interest for him play there.
He isn't waiver exempt since he is 21 and has played more then 80 games.

* jump to the section exempt due to experience.

edit: nm he is still 20 till November 14 so he should still be eligible for waiver exemption till then. I think the problem would lie in bringing him back up.

Without knowing all of these players too well, I guess it's something like this.

Rob Klinkhammer - Andy Miele - Chris Conner
Ethan Werek - Brendan Shinnimin - Jordan Szwarz
Scott Arnold - Alex Bolduc - Brett Hextall
Chris Brown - Jordan Martinook - Joel Rechlicz

Oliver Ekman-Larsson - David Rundblad
Chris Summers - Michael Stone
Brandon Gormley - Maxim Goncharov

Chad Johnson
Mark Visentin


Defense is stacked. Forwards... not so much.

I'll find it sad If OKC attendance isn't full, your basically watching NHL talent at AHL prices. I still don't get why the Oilers can't move the team to Canada at least, you'd get better attendance in places like Red Deer or Saskatoon.

The Aeros should have a decent team, but not so much from the lockout. All we get is Granlund and Scandy.

Why would Red Deer dump the Rebels for a minor league club?

Cool.

AHL and NHL don't always correlate with stats. The third leading scorer in the AHL during the locked out season when the league was filled with players from that absurd 2003 draft was David Ling...a guy who had 3 points in 50 NHL games the season before. Other NHL greats such as Peter Sarno, Simon Gamache, Chris Taylor, Andy Hilbert, and Denis Hamel found their way into the top 10 of scoring that season. The top goalies were Steve Valiquette, Jason LaBarbera, and Adam Hauser.


That said, I fully expect RNH and Eberle to put up some huge numbers.

Hershey could be interesting. Holtby is your starter and Orlov is a top pairing Dman added to an already decent blue line. There is enough talent on the blue line to put up some serious offensive numbers but play a solid shut down game with Holtby in net. The interesting part is how the forward lines are going to be. I'm sure I'm forgetting some, but I see it as Potulny, Hamil, maybe Galiev and a bunch of grinders.

Norfolk, now Syracuse, should be pretty stacked. They lost Kostka and a few plugs on the third and fourth line, added JT Brown, Brett Connolly, Vlad Namestnikov, Riku Helenius.

They're only additions to a team that boasted Mark Barberio, AHL defenseman of the year, Cory Conacher, Tyler Johnson, Ondrej Palat, Radko Gudas, Richard Panik, a full season of Alex Killorn, Dustin Tokarski, Keith Aulie (although I question him frequently). Can also throw in Labrie, Angelidis, Oberg, and Matt Taormina who seems to be a clone of Marc-Andre Bergeron (16 in 33 last year for Albany).

Team is going to be a blast to watch.

The Edmonton Oilers are sending the major players on their team to the AHL while most teams stars can't go without clearing waivers.
It'll be interesting to see how they do against the AHL as we saw the results of them playing in the NHL.

OKC actually has a strong history with hockey dating back to 1965 with the Blazers. Cities like Red Deer and Saskatoon wouldn't be able to support both an AHL and a WHL team and in some cases don't have an arena big enough to support an AHL team.

Cox Convention Center in OKC: 13,399
ENMAX Centrium in Red Deer: 6,706

You have no way of knowing that the aforementioned hypothesis is correct. Nonetheless, if the hypothesis turns out to be correct, you may support it but not give such an absolute answer. Furthermore, there are many other variables that could occur that could impact RNH's production. Anything could happen.

The Nuge will land up with more NHL points than all the "aforementioned" players combined.

I think you meant to say most likely or probably. For example, I could not say that Sidney Crosby will have more points than Kessel. I would say that Crosby will most likely have more points than Kessel.

Oiler babies have the skill title locked up but I like Houston's balance of size and skill in the top six. All but three (Granlund, Brodin, Scandella) were going to be down there anyway, so here's hoping an end to the lockout doesn't see the AHL season go down the toilet. Particularly excited to see how Bulmer is used. The AHL should be really interesting to follow in general this year. Obviously.

Still think so? I think his point flew over your head.
