A closer look at who makes the NHL, who falls short and why | Justin Bourne | The Athletic
..When discussing where a player fits into the pro hockey picture, the biggest misconception is the belief that the hockey gods have bestowed NHL talent to some, and only AHL talent to others (that's likely borne out of the belief that the NHL and AHL are miles apart). It's column A and column B. For example, it's been said: Seth Griffith in an NHL-calibre player. Well, he is and he isn't. It's a fluid situation. Hockey talent isn't neatly split into two columns: one NHL and one AHL. Instead it's more like two sides of a folded piece of paper that's being cut down the middle by a toddler — it veers in unpredictable ways. It's the same in deciding who gets a shot in the NHL and who doesn't. Around the fringes, an awful lot comes down to chance.

..In sum, it takes a lot of skill and will to get around that line, but from there there’s a lot of luck involved for borderline players. Guys like Ben Smith, Byron Froese, Fred Gauthier, Nikita Soshnikov, Brendan Leipsic and Josh Leivo, and on and on — how much money they earn, how much time they spend in each league, etc. How their careers unfold can simply be based on the opinions of a few men who either kind of like them or kind of don’t. Maybe in another organization, in another life, they’d have been given a chance to thrive and would have seized it — or maybe they’d have never seen the big league for a shift. Lives and franchises can be altered by difficult decisions on the fringes.
