Sounds like Kadri had a really good game. I hope Carlyle was at that game.

They said "Leafs brass" was watching the game. Not mentioned who though.

Brian Burke was at the game last night. He had an interview in between periods on the Bulldogs feed. It was mentioned that he was pushing hard for the double cba buy out option during negotiation. He said something like, "if you made a mistake signing a guy".

Marlies That Can Make Leafs Roster

http://mapleleafs.nhl.com/club/news....id=DL|TOR|home

Quote:
PAUL RANGER

From the outside looking in, Paul Ranger may appear as a wild card to crack the Maple Leafs blueline. To someone who has watched him play for the Marlies this season, he is anything but.

In 2009 Ranger was a budding defenceman with the Tampa Bay Lightning. He chose to take a break from the game and when he returned, he did so with his hometown team: Toronto. The move by the Maple Leafs organization to give him what he wanted so badly, a return to the sport at the pro level, was not only one that illustrates the class of the franchise, but it’s brains too. So far, Ranger is looking like a complete steal of a deal. The Whitby native scored highest amongst his peers in overall fitness heading into the start of the season and it did not take long for him to round into form. Solidifying the Marlies top six and making the team’s defence one of the deepest in the league is a credit to the amount of work Ranger has put into his comeback bid and to the way he conducts himself both on and off the ice. With 270 NHL games under his belt, this utility defenceman with many tools to offer, would be the bring a Cinderella ending to a great story if he ever ended up in a Leaf uniform.

2012-13 Stats: GP: 28 G: 5 A: 13 P: 18 +/-: +17

I think Kostka is going to have a spot with the Leafs to lose.

Phaneuf-Gunnarsson
Komisarek-Gardiner
Holzer-Liles
Kostka-Franson

I think they'll carry the extra players due to the short and compacted season.

Ranger if signed makes someone expendable, perhaps in the goalie deal.

Kostka is too slow in his own zone. I'd like to see him try to spin off someone like Kulemin forechecking against him. It won't happen.

They need to sign Paul Ranger. He's heads and shoulders above guys like Kostka.

Sounds like the Leafs aren't sure about Ranger, Eakins made it seem like he wasn't sure if he wanted to make the next step yet?

He said he's fine with staying in the AHL this season, doesn't want an NHL contract yet. I am assuming it's due to get adjusted for the bigs first.

MacKenzie reported last night than Ranger did not want to go to the NHL at this time. Leafs want to sign him.

Good for Ranger.

If he's into it at the end of the year, he'll have options.

Is there a limit to the number of players you can carry (as long as you are under the cap)?

I like that Ranger seems serious about making his comeback a successful one. I really hope to see him steal a spot on the marlies blueline

I got that feeling when push comes to shove that he would be the kind of guy to take a hometown discount, knowing fully that this upcoming crop of UFA'S is fairly deep, that fact that he is content to develop more in the AHL is just amazing and shows how much class a guy like Ranger has.

When he wants to sign he will sign. This is where he wants to be and this is where his "heart" is. To me, we be patient for players like him.

Day-to-day.

He's riding the bike symptom free from the reports last week but Dreger said he might still not make it in time for the first game on the 19th.

I don't think we'll know for sure until training camp starts and reporters dig in a bit more.

I think the Leafs sign him right after the CBA ban is lifted. Signs a 1 year contract till the remainder of the season.

Ranger needs to play the full year with the marlies, what's the rush. He was away from the game for a long time.

18 skaters is how many people you ice during a given game. I think it would be a little more
