Iowa/ AHL couldn't have picked a worse time to go for a week without a game. I was ready to plunk down some money so I could watch then, but they don't play till next weekend, I think. It's fun to see the young talent with aspirations playing down there. IMO, the style of play in the AHL is the closest to the NHL of any other league, now that they've cleaned up the goonish elements. This year especially it's interesting because of all the CHL players in the lineup that we wouldn't otherwise see like Beckman, Hunt, Jones, and ROR.
