A good team needs a good veteran presence and some grit as well as having skill. It's not just about who has the most top prospects. I like Chicago's balance. They have the right players to win in different ways, whether it be a gritty shutdown game, or a fast paced skill game.

The wolves should do well.

Oh and OKC lost to a much weaker Lake Eerie team tonight. No points for Nugent-Hopkins or Eberle. One point for Schultz, but he was a -2.

So as you can see, it's not like the AHL is an easy league to put up points in. There's good players in this league, especially with the lockout. Sure they have a good roster, but so does every other team.

I'm thinking the Bridgeport Sound Tigers will have quite the season as well. Forgot about this when I initially posted here but as today is the first day of the regular season for the AHL and a number of them did already impress, I thought I'd pop them down as definite candidates to win.

Niederreiter
Hamonic
de Haan
Kabanov
Cizikas
Nelson
Ness
Ullstrom
Wishart

Very solid in both forwards and defencemen


Yea, that's one heck of a roster.

Hamonic with 3 assists tonight, Cizakas with 2 goals, Niedereitter with 3 points, and Kabanov with 2 points.

But even having that much firepower doesn't guarantee wins. They let in 4 goals even with a D containing De Haan, Hamonic, and Wishart. You still need goaltending.

It's true, and their goaltender in net I've never heard of before.

interesting that eberle gets sent down but not hall & yikes at that team.

Hall is hurt still so he won't be yet and Yikes hasn't played in the NHL yet so its either CHL or Europe for him.
