Cleveland Barons moving to Worcester

I brought this up not because it's particularly newsworthy - the AHL, as with many minor leagues, is usually in flux, with teams frequently changing identities, logos, colors, and cities, as their affiliates change. It's the nature of the beast.
Which brings me to my point - does anyone else think it's a shame that AHL teams sometimes take on nearly the exact identity of their NHL affiliates? The Providence Bruins are an example. The Worcester Sharks will be another one, joining the Iowa Stars and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. Other teams more subtly change their colors to match - the Norfolk Admirals, for example, were once blue and gold, a natural given the naval namesake and enormous Naval presence in the city. Now they wear Chicago Blackhawk uniforms with a new Admirals logo.
This is why I'm glad we have the Griffs. Other than adding red to their unis to represent the Wings, they more or less have kept their identity.
