Yes, the Barons aren't going to lose a season series against any team. Get real. I can't fathom how the Barons lost any games this year, Oiler fans had me thinking they were going undefeated.

Interesting timing on this post.

I would have waited to see how much of an effect Hall joining the team would have.

That wasn't even an Oiler fan who made that prediction . Regardless it's been a VERY vocal minority, or else extreme homers who thought OKC was going to mop the floor with everyone. The AHL is a very good league and lots of people underrated it.

barons defensive play has been terrible sofar this season. they barely held onto a couple of the wins. if they get their systems in order and stay healthy, have fun winning a 7 game series against that lineup.

Hey guys quit picking on the Barons, they are getting enough of it from the Players in the AHL.

Getting away from drooling at the Barons (by the way BryOil you're making a habit of making some ridiculous bold claims, I'd suggest quitting while you're ahead before people start quoting you when you're wrong. A good team can't win on lots of firepower alone, you'd think people would learn that after Philly got owned last year. Lots of other factors go into making a winning team (part of why I don't get why everyone thinks that just cause Edmonton has their big 5 they're going to be cup contenders soon) so temper your expectations a bit)

Gotta ask what's up with Silfverberg and Zibanejad? Or that team in general. Can't be the goaltending's fault cause Lehner is doing great. I ask cause I drafted Silfverberg in a Dynasty draft and Zibanejad was used as a centerpiece in a trade proposal for Bobby Ryan and, well, the argument was Z-bad would easily make up for the lost offense and I'm not seeing it so far. I know its a small sample size and everything but can I get objective analysis on Silfverberg? (like of someone asks I'll say Etem is playing nowhere near the level many expected)

I saw the baby Sens game against the Kings, they looked awful to be honest. Wierchoch or whatever his name is got so overrated, watching him play, he may become a bottom pairing offensive guy, maybe. They have a lot of talent on the roster it seems, but there is either little vision or the coaching and systems are not very effective this year. Oh yeah and Bishop kind of sucks too

The Dogs were in tough scoring with Leblanc. He's not out 4-6 weeks.

1-0/2-1 wins here we come!

2nd youngest team in the A. I would assume Barons are the youngest ? The dogs have done well so far. Especially considering they don't have their number 1 goalie to bail them out.

Some teams are ridiculously stacked.

Sound Tigers have 5 guys over 25 I believe.

Monarchs have a nice mix of forwards now with King and arguably the best defenseman in the AHL in Voinov. Muzzin has been outstanding with Voinov on the top pair.

Loktionov
Toffoli
Vey
Nolan
Andreoff
King
Voynov
Kozun
Pearson
Prokhorkin
Muzzin
Jones

Voynov? Schultz, OEL, McNabb, Vatanen, among others say what up.

Forgot OEL is there...Voynovs more proven than most and way underrated. How many of those guys played top 4 minutes in the Cup finals? Potential doesnt mean squat.

OEL sure but not the others. Voynov was a top 4 D on a Stanley cup winner.

Voynov is underrated. He's been tearing up the AHL for years before finally getting his chance to break into the Kings defensive corp after trading JJ. He's also another member of the deep defensemen draft of 2008. Second pick of the second round.

It's almost pointless to debate which defenseman is the best in the AHL right now. I mean, look at some of these names;

Ryan Ellis
Adam Larsson
Jared Cowen
Travis Hamonic
Justin Faulk
Dmitry Orlov
Brendan Smith
Stefan Elliott
Slava Voynov
Sami Vatanen
Justin Schultz
Oliver Ekman-Larsson
Jake Gardiner
Simon Despres

Is anybody really able to say that just one of these guys is the clear cut best of them all? I highly doubt it.

I agree, and I'm a Ducks fan. It was absurd that he was even available when you took him.

Interestingly enough, Dean Lombardi's guy at that spot was Viktor Tikhonov, but I believe (someone correct me if I'm wrong) the Coyotes traded up to grab him, so the Kings went with Voynov. Not a bad consolation prize, I guess.
