Seeing as both replacements make more than the players Grabovski ($2.9 mil) and MacArthur ($3.2 mil) they'd be replacing, Leafs should be in good because of newly acquired team depth.

Players making that kind of coin are expected to be capable of playing top 6 roles, because their paid like them.

Where is the problem?

Why wouldn't he put Frattin on the second line? Frattin has been doing good, giving him less playing time doesn't make sense.

I also think that this is the way that Wilson shows that he sees Connolly as a #2 centre?

I think I just threw up in my mouth a bit. The only line where we don't have a fourth liner is the first one, which still has Bozak who should be a third liner.

If either of Mac or Grabo are more than Day to Day, we will see them put on IR and Kadri called up. Because there's no way in hell that this should be our lineup:

Lupul-Bozak-Kessel
Crabb-Connolly-Kulemin
Lombardi-Steckel-Brown
Frattin-Dupuis-Rosehill

At least I hope not...

the problem isn't with Connolly and Lombardi, the problem is with Crabb and Frattin and Steckel and Brown playing in roles where we need offensive production.

There is no way we're going with todays practice lines into a game, I don't see it. Evaluating the injury status still I presume, and for some reason Frattin is missing from practise too. We'll see something different tomorrow I'm sure.

I hope you're right, but I wouldn't put it past Ronnie to use those lines.

Yeah, sorry Frattin wasn't at practice so that might change all the lines around for tomorrow.

Not one but 2 top six players get injured and Wilson seriously isn't calling up Kadri!?!?! He should be up for Frattin anyways!!!! Those lineups remind of the 08-09 season! Wow.

Seriously, Crabb on the second line? Instead of using Rosehill, they could put Brown on the 4th line, Crabb on the third line and Kadri on the second line. And that would actually work out better for those players in terms of their natural positions (minus Kadri, however, he's played games and had plenty of practice on the left wing so it still works out).

Ugh, that line up is scary, haha.

Wilson just said that he will probably have 7 D in the lineup tomorrow.

Winning through injuries is a validation of good team depth, while losing suggests otherwise. Team depth appears to be tested soon if injuries to Grabs and Mac makes them no goes.

Its not uncommon for teams to promote players on the active roster into higher positions to accommodate for injuries, and then fill their spots with players in the pressbox from among the 23 man roster.

Since pulling players from the farm system to replace top 6 injured players, clearly suggests the current team has issues with team composition , if you have better players in the minors than you dress on a regular basis on your parent team.
