mottau and scott are not that big a deal. mottau though we could use his presence for depth right now.

hamilton's our captain, and i've become quite the fan of his from following the marlies. also like you said he could be a decent 4th line call-up if we need him.

aucoin is a great veteran for a forward corps, and one of the most succesful AHLers in recent memory. gaining him was fantastic seeing as we are Calder Cup contenders. Losing him would really hurt. Plus he'd be an arguably even better call-up in a pinch than Hamilton and more suited for 3rd line roles. Hell, he played with Ovechkin for a bit last year when the Caps needed him. 11 pts in 27 games in the NHL isn't too bad for a journeyman.

TL;DR I'm a Marlies fan as much as a Leafs fan.
