    great news. So Suter and Klein will be Milwaukee Admirals next year, and it's expected that Nashville still wants to sign Richard Stehlik and Paul Brown for the same reason.

    EDIT, just received this email from the Preds:

    Who is going to play on the Admirals' blueline next year? They're going to have a logjam there. A very talented logjam.

    the names that are for sure there:

    hutchinson
    zanon
    suter
    klein

    Safronov is gone, some of the UHL callups won't be back(Nathan Lutz, etc). Jamie Allison, if he in fact signed a two-way contract(again, I'm prety sure he did) will likely be there for some leadership..and the Preds still hope to sign one or both of Richard Stehlik and Janne Niskala, who would both likely be Admirals. Factor in that Dan Hamhuis will play for Milwaukee if there's a lockout, as well.

    They want to sign him, but he has one more year of junior, so it's not a pressing issue.

    If I'm not mistaken, he was almost old enough to play in the AHL last year. He's almost a year older than Weber.

    Milwaukee will be loaded down with good to great prospects next year. They won't win anything major though, IMO. The key to a great AHL team always seems to be a mix of veterans and youngsters, and Milwaukee is losing several key veterans including their starting goalie. They'll be a blast to watch, but I'm not sure they have what it takes to make a run at the Calder.

    Any word on whether or not Mukhachev is coming over now? He signed a contract last year that was to begin this year (If I'm not mistaken). Is the lockout going to scare him away. From the looks of it, he'd be a great addition to Milwaukee. If we plan on him contributing, he'll need to learn the NA ice.

    I hope they televise a lot more AHL games if there isn't an NHL next year. With all of this new young talent it should be pretty exciting.
