He's been a passenger, let's keep it real. Crabb has been WAY more effective than Lombardi to date. Not saying he doesn't find his game, but he's pretty much useless so far. Looks pretty skating though, but style points don't count.

Komisarek was one of our best defenders before he got hurt.

I love Frattin's game. Even though he wasn't burying all his chances he played a solid game night in and night out and wasn't a liability on the defensive end. With that being said, the move makes a lot of sense. I don't see him as a fourth line player and there is no room for him RIGHT NOW on the top 3 lines. There's just a log jam of forwards right now and I think/hope a deal will be made to not only make room for him, but improve the roster in the process.

Sucks that Frattin is sent down, but he'll be back up one day

Sad to see Frattin go down when he is playing good. Though I think he should help the marlies out.

Burke is obviously just a Kadri fanboy. That's the only reason he'd have ever sent Frattin down!

Frattin really needs to work on his board play and playmaking. Holzer is going back down to continue to play big minutes for the Marlies and develop his game.

The lineup is really starting to shape up.

Leafs need to move some bodies, I know we have with Orr and Dupuss, but guys like Lombardi, even Armstrong, not sure we have the room anymore...
Yeah but Crabb shouldn't be up over Frattin. Frattin can do all the things Crabb does is and is more talented. Though I think I saw you mention that already in another thread

Boyce-Steckel-Brown is a GREAT 4th line IMO. Not sure who you take out for komisarek as he should be in the lineup conisdering how well he played prior to his injury. NO way you take out franson as he as been solid 11 points in 25 games +3 getting limited ice time. We have soo much depth but i think its time burke deals from a position of strength to aquire 1 elite forward for maybe 3 decent players (2 fw, 1D )

I agree, but when Wilson moved Crabb up to the second line, the pecking order was established. Crabb can play PK right now, sure that was part of the decision.

I doubt we'll see crabb in the lineup much longer, either. Or Boyce, for that matter.

Lupul - Connolly - Kessel
Mac - Bozak - Kadri
Kuly - Grabo - Lombo
Brown - Steckel - Army

Someone actually said Frattin really "needs to work on his board play". Seriously.

I don't understand the hate for Komi. He was playing his best hockey in a leaf uniform prior to his injury. I felt like he was the best defenceman on the defensive end. If he can come back and play the way he was prior to the injury, he'd be a welcomed asset. I was critical of Franson at the beginning of the season but I've come around and I feel he's played much better. Everyone deserves to play and I think the best solution would be to have a rotation of Aulie, Franson and Komi as the 5th and 6th D. I'd have Gardiner in there but with Liles out, he's our best puck moving defenceman.

This move just means Kadri beat Frattin out for the last top 9 spot.

Main reason Frattin demoted is because he doesn't need waivers. He'll be back. Kid's a good one with all kinds of upside.
