There are other players we as fans would want to see, but the team is not allowed to play them. Before the playoffs every team has to submit a clear day roster, and the Marlies submitted theirs with those players on it. You can only submit it with players on the team at that time I believe, that's why Frattin/Gardiner were sent down. So it wouldn't have been possible to submit with Percy, Broll, Leivo, Abbott because they weren't around at the time.
So unfortunately the only way those guys play is if others on the roster get injured. But honestly I like what at least Acton and Scott bring. Acton aside from Rosehill/Fraser is our only nasty in your face player to play against. Scott is quick as **** and a great penalty killer, that's all you could ask for from a fourth liner.
As for Gysbers, he might have been more effective in the regular season but now they're giving primary minutes to the other two pairings so we're seeing him less.
