    With the new CBA your drafting and development will become even more important. I think you will see more teams cutting ties with their current AHL teams and taking ownership of another team so to be more involved.

    We saw that at the end of last season when the Stars cut ties with the Grizzles and in the fall the new AHL Dallas Stars will take the ice in Des Moines, Iowa. They have control of everything from management, scounting and coaching staff.

    Isles did the same thing three years ago, launching the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in the AHL. Before that, their prospects were on 4 different teams, all playing a different system, none under the Isles' control. Not good for development. They bought the team this year so now it is TOTALLY under their control.

    Would also make sense if Kronke bought an AHL team so that he could run it on his TV network...

    And if there's something to this speculation that it could involve the Eagles, they have in fact already been shown on Altitude.

    What farmhands?... they don't have prospects

    From the looks of it, the Avs just gave up on drafting altogether. Maybe they'll just trade all their picks and just pick up players that way.
