Likewise, I'm still in "Show me the money" mode with our own guys. Once Silf pots 30-35, 70+ points for the next 10-15 years and Zib gets 20-25, 40+ points for the next 10-15 years at the NHL level then it's all good. My expectations are extremely tempered though as AHL dominance might not translate to anything worthwhile at the NHL level.
Colborne is the only one of those guys that's been playing for the Marlies the past few weeks. It's the Marlies defense that's leading them right now. Paul Ranger is too good for the AHL and Kostka is the highest scoring AHL defenseman behind Schultz.

I expect Ranger to make the Leafs this year if he so chooses.
