Considering the age of the defense, and the leading scorers we know how the Marlies are constructed.

15 wins 11 loses

Kadri has played 24 of 26 games and they won the game he was a healthy scratch.

They've had stinkers with everyone on board, but it is obvious Gardiner and Kadri are key parts of this Marlies team.

The Leafs pantry is not replenished at the AHL level, so that's why there are 5 veterans in the top 8 of their scoring.

Things are looking better in junior, with Biggs, Rielly, Sparks, Nilsson, Finn, Granberg amongst others.

He was the Leafs' leading scorer in the 196364, 196667 and 196970 seasons, and the team's top goal scorer in 197071 and 197273. Keon was considered one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, and one of the best defensive forwards of his era.[3] He would usually play against the opposing team's top centre, and developed a reputation for neutralizing some of the league's top scorers. In 197071, he scored eight shorthanded goals, setting an NHL record.
