    Statistically speaking, it's less of an argument and more a statement of fact. Bunch of stuff one can argue with over Wilson, but the statistical results being great isn't one of them.

    Shocked that we didn't bring him back but I'm glad he's moved on.

    ECHL is basically room and board as your salary, right?

    AHL pays like what...60-120k average?

    So...I would assume +/-50k.

    So for the guys on AHL deals making the AHL means you live comfortably (never been to Wilkes-Barre but I imagine cost of living is reasonable) whereas in the ECHL you're living like a college student.

    most likely. But I'm sure it's prorated and plundered by your agent plus if you don't break into NHL you might need to find a real job real quick.

    I hope these kids are banking the few tens of thousands they're making.

    I wouldn’t say you live comfortably. Go read some stories about the A and the ECHL. Brutal travel schedule. I’m sure it pays to play for a team like WBS tho’ where the NHL Club is heavily invested and involved.

    I mean comfortable in the sense you can afford a decent place to live, decent car, a decent vacation etc. Travel I'm sure is brutal. The guys in the ECHL though are living pretty basic, trying to save every penny whereas the guys in WBS are able to afford a pretty decent middle class living.

    I would love to see a survey of what ex-AHL and ECHLers are doing 20 years after retirement. My guess is the increasing middle classification of the sport/amount of guys going the college route means most of them are okay - they play, have a blast, then go into business or whatever, maybe become hockey coaches - but I'm guessing there's plenty of kids, particularly from the CHL, who just lived a long party then probably hit desperate straits. I know the CHL has a college fund for the kids who played there, but does that still kick in after a long pro career?

    I think a TON end up in real estate and insurance sales. They're "easy" careers.

    Or quietly fold back into a family business if it exists.

    Weren’t his underlying metrics extremely strong, esp given QoT/QoC?

    I really didn’t mind Wilson last year at all eye test wise either.

    Goalie depth is going to be ridiculous if Jarry stays.

    They finally did it. I forget which poster has been asking for this for years now.

    WBS signed enforcer Jamie Devane and Yushi Hirano to AHL deals

    Doesn't look like an enforcer.

    Does anyone remember the poster on the official sites forums that posted drawings of Koltsov as an anthropomorphic horse?

    My memory isn't what it used to be but the first thing that popped into my head was that her name began with a C or a K?

    For someone who would know better than me:

    On paper, this has to be one of the top AHL teams in the league right?
