Philly/Adirondak are now affiliated with Kalamazoo of the ECHL.
If anything, I'm hoping the Wings bring in some of the Flyers fans opening weekend because of the affiliation. I know fans are understandably upset at the Devils being the affiliate here (with the name to boot), but the Flyers have provided had very little in terms of ECHL talent since the Kelly Cup year. Just ask Wheeling and Mississippi. The Wings are smart for including San Jose on this too, though they're not much to write home about with their ECHL track record either.
With that said, while we're at the mercy of Lowell, I'll gladly take Kell, Castonguay, Cohen, etc. over the scraps that Philly has given their ECHL teams in the past few years.
