Hamilton There's the answer next year! Why not keep him down where he scores and plays big minutes to win a trophy and call up Colborne to get him experience now that the season is all but over? I really don't get it
Maybe because you should call up people who deserves it? Imo Hamilton would make a great 3rd liner in the NHL, yet he's never gotten a chance.
In every Marlies game I've watched either live or on TV this year, he's outworked both Colborne and Kadri.
They do but it is rare and really is considered going over the coaches head. It is not highly thought of. In fact in a lot of cases it is the minor league coach who makes the call on who goes up when a player is needed.
People need to realize that the needs of Dallas Eakins are not > than the needs of Randy Carlyle. The Leafs could be the worst team in the NHL and the Marlies the best in the A, but if the Leafs need a callup, you send the best suited player, no matter what
Except they don't. It is almost always the coaches decision
It's a roster move, so it's done by the GM. I'm sure Burke and Carlyle discussed this, likely with Eakins, but it falls under the GM's duties.
Nice to see Kadri and Hamilton get a look. From what I've read Colborne hasn't played well lately(and he's a centre) so I don't mind Hamilton getting the nod instead. D'Amigo or Mueller is a better argument than Colborne right now IMO.
