IHL v AHL quality

When an American Hockey League team lands in town, there is often an argument about the quality of the product. That is especially true when the AHL replaces a team from say the United Hockey League, now the International Hockey League, or the ECHL.

Reed Schreck has a piece in the Rockford Register Star about one player and his journey back to Rockford, now in the uniform of the Milwaukee Admirals, Kevin Ulanski. And, he makes some points about the many AHL players who are called up to the NHL to play with the parent team. Ulanski talks to Schreck about his perceptions about the quality of play between the IHL and the AHL.

Schreck also answers a question that would have taken some research: who is on the Chicago Blackhawks that could move back to the Rockford IceHogs after Clear Day? The Blackhawks, he says, have five players, four can return to the IceHogs: Corey Crawford, Dustin Byfuglien, Cam Barker, Jordan Hendry and Dave Bolland.
