Steve Ott- 6', 195 lbs
Brad Ross- 6'1, 183 lbs

So, not only is Ross taller than both, but when he finishes filling out he will probably weigh a tad over 200 lbs, which makes your statement complete ********. If you're going to discredit someone, at least use facts and don't straight up lie.
Beat me to it.

I didn't choose a player either. I agreed with someone else!!! Someone else said Hayes will be the better player and I agreed then all you guys freaked out because that would mean Burked ****ed up another trade involving prospects lolSorry but Ross has a big hill to climb if he is going to be a third line forward (which Hayes is....on a contending team) and if you can't accept that, well I dont know what to tell you...
They're upset because of your failure to give an actual reason why Hayes will be better. Saying 'just because' is not an argument.

Funny how everyone gets so defensive when this guy says he thinks someone else will be better than a Leaf prospect. Didn't the same thing happen yesterday lol...

Kadri's off ice work habits puts him on the sidelines again. Taking the Summer off just doesn't cut it now days.

I'm pretty sure it was playing a contact sport that sidelined him

What's the severity of Kadri's injury?

His off season work habits make a contact sport very difficult for him.

And Gardiner too? How about Crosby, of he had better off ice work habits he'd probably have a stronger brain allowing him to avoid concussion. The fact that your using an injury to bash someone's off ice habits is absolutely ridiculous.

Yes, #22 pick at the cost of #30 (obtained from Boston in the Kaberle deal) and #39 picks.

Marlies out shot 36-17. Watching the game it was obvious that they missed the offense brought by Kadri and Gardiner.

Rynnas was stellar. I would go back with him as the starter.

Marlies were really out shot tonight but got a point and that's something they needed to do.

Sam Carrick with one goal and one assist last night. Gives him 6 goals, 5 assists for 11 points in 21 games. Pretty mediocre stats for the ECHL though.

Colborne is going to have to step up. 2 assists last night is a good start although I didn't watch the game. Just the scoresheet last night haha.

So yeah, anyone who thinks the Marlies have been winning based on their vets, and not because of their young star talents like Kadri and Gardiner, probably want to watch last night's ugly performance.

I'm going to the game tomorrow. Hopefully we can get some secondary scoring, Ross, Abbott, Hamilton. We still can beat San Antonio. Gards, Kaz or not. Happy holidays folks!

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.

Speaking to Chicago fans, I was surprised to find out that no one had been blown away with either Hayes or stalberg, despite their rather impressive statistics. So stats obviously aren't the entire story with these players. Personally I'm excited for Ross, he strikes me as a later bloomer. Hes playing vs men now, and I think it's easier for an offensively gifted prospect stepping into a mans league to have confidence in their game, and to play their style. While with a physical agitator (especially an undersized one), it's going to be very intimidating at first lining up against a grizzled, battle scarred, body building physiqued agitator/enforcer. He might end up our less crazy headed, Downie or Avery, or he might end up just being another kris newbury. But judging his abilities after just 8 pro games is just lunacy.

Last year opinions changed about Stalberg, as we've had regular discussions with Hawks fans here. Perhaps getting over his concussion made the difference. 22 goals 43 points is pretty good in his 3rd. NHL season. He was 5th. in scoring for the Hawks, a pretty good team.

I think the Marlies record is 16-9-1-1, not 13-10-0-1.

Hope Gardiner and Kadri can return to the line up soon.

I hope Brad Ross is sent to the ECHL, no point of scratching him, he'd be useful for a club down there and he'd actually be playing.

Ross has been playing lately.

Ashton was brilliant tonight. His top speed is really something, and his effort level is phenomenal. Guy was put in every situation and he capitalized on an end to end, do it all goal.

I thought Abbott and Colborne were both good as well.

I'm really excited about having Ranger in the organization. The guy will be back in the NHL for sure.
