Amerks lost to Toronto on Wednesday, meaning that the Marlies clinched the final spot in the North Division semifinals and Rochester will not make the playoffs for the first time in seventeen years, ending the longest playoff streak in franchise history.

Does anybody else think that this season's futility was caused by Buffalo calling up almost all of the Amerks' talent and/or Florida not having the best prospects in their system?

There was some of that. But did you notice how much harder and with more heart the team played when we were missing talent? It sure seemed to me like we started to get guys back, and the team tanked.

(Please note that I exclude Chris Taylor from this comment, cause he worked his tail off. (pun intended)).

I think it was a little of both. But the Amerks started to tank when they took all the major talent up to Buffalo. They just didn't have the fire power. Also the defense was hurting most of the second half. I hope to God I don't see Cullen in a Amerks jersey next year. He has at least 5 assists to the other team for giving up goals.
