Frattin/Kadri-Colborne-Crabb will probably be the best-line in the AHL this season once one of Kadri/Frattin are down. The marlies should be fun to watch this season.

I'm wondering how Burke's going to make room for guys like Colborne, Kadri, and Aulie who should have full-time NHL jobs next season.
Cmac, Bozak traded this year.

Lombardi probably traded next year.

Its important that Burke gets value for these 2nd line/tweener types instead of having them hit free agency and leaving with no compensation at the end of next year well working our future cheaper and potentially more productive 2nd liners/3rd liners in Colborne, Frattin and Kadri into the lineup.

Franson traded at some point this season.

And Komi hopefully pawned off ala a Brian Rolston type move towards the end of this season or over the summer where we take a player back with a lesser salary who will be bought out or sent to the minors/loaned to European team.
