Will a Lock-Out Affect the Minor Leagues, Too?

Will an NHL lock-out trickle down to the minors, too? I'm wondering cause I want to know where our minor league prospects will play if there is no NHL season or a shortened one. Will their development be delayed?

Minor leagues will still have seasons. Some NHL guys might even end up playing in the AHL. Jason Spezza did during the last lockout, for example.

There are going to be a lot of quality players down in the AHL, it will help develop the players a lot faster this way then having a weaker AHL IMO. Look at the last lockout, so many great young players played in the AHL and are now superstars in the league

Unfortunetly some of those quality prospects will have to be sent down to the ECHL if the lock out drags on.

The AHL/ECHL is not locked out during a work stoppage.
