Yep.

His contract should be 1 way, alright - in the AHL and in the AHL only.

Correct.

Good for Mark, I wish him the best. Couldn't shore his game together with the Devils, but has the potential. I've always loved his physical play. Hopefully he finds his game with the Leafs.

Fraser wasn't that bad. He's a physical 6/7 defenseman. Nothing more, nothing less. He'll just make boneheaded plays from time to time like trying to start a fight while his team has possession in the offensive zone.

A much needed Marlies signing. Nothing more.

He won't see the NHL, there are about 10 guys ahead of him on the depth chart. He's a good player in the minors helping protect the young prospects.

looked decent in the AHL playoffs last year. He's good for depth and still 25/26 years old.

He's nothing more than a d-man enforcer.

Not enough speed/quickness to play in the NHL, in my opinion. Great for the Marlies though.

Obviously an AHL signing, perhaps depth if we run into a bunch of defense injuries. Can't complain.

AHL signing. Probably anchors the top-pairing with Gysbers, although, hopefully Blacker is playing at that level next season.

I came to this thread expecting to see somebody reply "Plan the parade route" as a response and it was nowhere to be found. You people are slipping.

He's not bad. 7/8 guy on most teams, maybe upto 6/7 with Schenn gone. Not all the signings announced will rock the hockey world, and this is a fine retention.

Marlies have 3 d-men with NHL contracts right now. Enough said.

He was a beast with the Marlies.... pairing up with Holzer on the PK.

He was good for smashing the other team when they were taking liberties on the younger Marlies.

People bashing on Fraser obviously have not watched any AHL games last year.

That said, it's just an AHL signing, and a good one at that.

Burke is continuing to stack the deck down in the AHL and nothing more. He wants the Marlies to be continual winners and start up a pipe of solid young players with winning experience moving up the NHL.

Of course because this is HFBoards and everyone hates the Leafs there will be epic trolling including gems about only winning in the AHL, if any other franchise did the same thing for their young guys, like say Florida, it would be a solid move by a savvy GM.

Those people should get a one month ban.
