Feel free to post any stupid questions you have, I'm bored and will be answering them this evening unless I can find gong show on cable.

I will not take questions about the hockey reporters hair or lack of.

a lot of echl teams getting loaded up by their affiliates..

All the playoff rosters are set. The only loading would be the "playoff eligible" players listed who are generally in the AHL now and would come down if their team does not make the AHL playoffs or gets eliminated early. Not more then 3 players ( someone interject)and the all have had to have played regular season games with same ECHL team. I think 5 or 10 game minimum( Please interject someone) 

   Contrary to popular belief, you really cannot stack or load a team to any large degree. Usually the horses that got you there are the horses you ride.  Some of the AHL guys are spending more time sitting in the stands as scratches than playing. 

 on a side note   I also noticed the Komets are in violation of rule 3 3.1-team bench. Must have gotten that grandfathered.

go K's!

RG 2, those are interesting thoughts.  The only thing I would have somewhat of a "quarrel" with is that Florida sure loaded up two years ago.

Ya' know, to be real honest with you, I'm not sure I have witnessed enough ECHL seasons to make a determination pro or con.  It just seems that common sense screams at me that, whenever players from a higher league are sent to you, a better chance for winning exists.

Your guess is as good as mine.  Have a great day, RG 2!
