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.
