if this is true, then it's likely schenn would be going with grabo... so wouldn't we need gardiner to stick with the club...? (at least until liles comes back)

Or if Schenn stays and it's a forward who goes with Grabo, who is the most likely candidate? Kadri? Who else?

Yeah we can instead do it in front of the net since we'll never leave our end .

I don't see Gardiner skate the puck out often. Liles does it much better, and with the way Franson is playing, it's not like his offense is going to be missed.

if Liles is healthy this makes since, especially with the trade rumors going around

This is fine. The kid hasn't even ever played more than 51 games in a season AND he was starting to show signs of slowing down in the last few games he dressed for. It's not like they're giving up on him. Burke said time and time again, if he wasn't going to play regular minutes on the Leafs, he'd be going down to the Marlies. There's a logjam on D if Liles comes back this week, so what's the problem?

He'll be back. Don't get your panties in a knot.

You realize Komisarek and Aulie make tons of horrible blatant turnovers too, right? A lot of which are in front of the net which is far worse.

The only way you can justify Komisarek and Aulie in the line-up over Gardiner would be Leafs are not a complete disaster on the PK with those two.

I would be fine with the move if Liles was healthy but right now, he is not. Komisarek just had a horrendous game and he is playing on his off-wing. The PP has been struggling a lot lately too so I think it wold make some sense to keep him up for now since things can change in a hurry. Aulie nor Komisarek by any means have their spots locked down.

Wonder if they'd like to call someone else up to be the guy to sit. Holzer must be getting bored of just sitting around and never playing an NHL game.

people are spastic over this but there is no denying he DID slow down in the last 5 or 6 games he played.

this is not the end of the world. we have our future puck mover people.

He gets paid NHL money for just sitting down, it's better than playing in the AHL.

I'd agree though, in that one game he had last year he looked pretty decent, as did Mueller in the few games he played. We need to give him a chance..

Exactly. No need to overreact here. Probably means somebody is coming off the IR. Gardiner has been getting progressively worse the past few weeks so a short stint to get back to the basics won't hurt his development.

You can't do that.
Now I must know, even if it is blind speculation.

The mobility of this defence is terrible.


I think Gunnarsson is the only one who has any sort of agile play to his game.


Phaneuf can skate fast in straight lines.. the rest.... ouch.


Liles being out is killing us.

Not surprised, Liles or Bozak will come back and he is the guy who they would send down, now with komisarek player decent in the left side.

Logical move, he'll benefit from ahl ice time. His defensive mistakes and breakdowns in his last appearances were not nice to watch. Welcome back later, kid.

I don't mind this. Anyone who thought he's been good recently hasn't been watching hockey games. He's a rookie for ****'s sake - and sitting him like this is awful for his development. Letting him play in the marlies for a while is the right move at this point.

The most games he's played a season prior to this is 50, tops. And while people raved about his conditioning, you can tell from his play that he couldn't keep up in december. Putting him in a slightly slower league is the perfect way to allow him to build his conditioning up to the point where he'll be able to come in and make a difference next year (or even later this season).

Who cares if he's our best skating defensman? It doesn't matter if he gives the puck away at our own blueline like he's been prone to do ing recently.

Forwards losing puck battles and not being able to get the puck past the blue line is what's killing us defensively.

Everyone knows sending 21 year old rookies to the AHL is like a death sentence. Can't believe Burke and Wilson aren't aware of this. Poor kid.
