Have you ever been sleepy and still not able to close your eyes and fade out? “Insomnia and I are old friends,” the greatest comedian of all time, Groucho Marx, once said. ” have shared that same friend for the better part of my life.

So on Wednesday night / early Thursday morning I got to thinking a bit about how I would improve the AHL if I could.

I thought about our society’s embracing of Global Warming and fuel efficiency and so on and it occurred to me to think that, “Shouldn’t the teams of the AHL be better arranged to improve logistics, rivalries and to make more money?”

How much better that would be for the teams I thought…

So, with nothing else to do, here is MY list of how the league should be matched up.
