    So what is goin to happen with this draft class. Will the rush to sign a bunch of the first rounders before Sept. 15th, 2004 allow those signed into the AHL for next season or will they be restricted from starting their pro careers? And if unsigned, what happens to those kids. Player transactions seemed to be locked, so do the rest become free agents or do they return as overagers for another year or until the CBA is resolved? The AHL may be more exciting next season than it is this, and possibly more worth while to watch.

    there are guys under contract in the ahl this year, so it will have absolutely no impact on them.

    But there are guys, like Anthony Stewart, who signed right before the 15th and are still playin juniors. And what of the unsigned?

    a guy like stewart could be assigned to the ahl just like guys like bergeron was this year...

    teams can't sign players till the lockout is over, so the flyers can't sign jeff carter. but carter can sign a ahl deal with the phantoms to play for philly's ahl club till the lockout is over.
