Not to mention the fact that the Marlies are carrying 2 others as healthy scratches in Marshall and Yuen.

Marshall is a solid AHL defenceman, but you can't argue the fact that the current 6 aren't just as valuable. Yuen is a bit of a surprise to me as to why the Marlies signed him in the first place. If you have 8 capable defencemen, then why add another 2?

Blacker seems like a guy that is close to the NHL but is in surplus on the Marlies blueline. I think you're right that Edmonton could come calling and it wouldn't shock me if Nashville or Calgary gave them a ring as well.
