During the 2010-11 season, the Detroit Red Wings employed 37 players with their AHL club (Grand Rapids). It's interesting to look at the makeup of those 35 players--prospects, AHL veterans--suspects--and compare that group to the bunch Edmonton sent to Oklahoma City same year. Does it offer us some clues about how Detroit develops their players?

The equivalency has a new favorite, young Finn Toni Rajala. How high can he fly?
