Best to bury him and forget him and hope he re-emerges somewhere down the line as a contributor. I'd be more comfortable seeing a Marcel Mueller up than Ashton next season.

Marlies should be really good with all the players they'll get back.

This is best for both Leafs and Ashton. He is still very raw in terms of offensive abilities and could use his size more in the mold of a power-forward. The guy has been very good in his short instincts here doing all the little things so well and making reliable and simple plays. and even if he doesn't pan out much offensively, he will be a very good 3rd liner player that can provide physicality, awesome board work, and good defensive plays, though I do think he will eventually become a top 6 forward when he is fully ready, developed and adjusted to the NHL level.

His board work is probably the best I have seen from any of our top 9 forwards and only close second to Kulemin.

Overall, I am very with Ashton and he could use a season or two in the AHL before making a legit jump at the big club, IMO.

This is what I have taken from his short stint in the NHL.

About time he goes back. Really didn't understand the reasoning behind bringing him up to begin with. Obviously needed more time.

Kid tries hard, but looks absolutely terrible in the NHL.

i think lombo and connolly are the guys most likely to rebound next year. komi is so bad defensively and army looks like a useless pylon. at least lombo can skate and connolly got hands, those two should train each other.

I'd rather get rid of all of them.

Ashton got his feet wet so he should be much better next season with the marlies

About time. He did absolutely nothing. That's not to say I don't like him, and he doesn't have potential. I hope he pans out and he's got some decent potential and he certainly tries hard.

Re-visit him after another year in the AHL.

Physical enough and has enough skills that he seems to have a real chance of playing in the bottom 6 of an NHL team eventually. I'd be worried if his best bet to make it was as skilled forward but fortunately he has the size and he isn't timid.

I saw some good work ethic from him, nothing really special. Hope Eakins can do something with him.

I think we all knew he'd be getting sent back down after the Leafs season was done so really no biggie they decided to do it now rather then in a couple days. Maybe there is some league rule about the quantity of players that can get sent down once the season is officially over.

What exactly does this have to do with Ashton getting sent down?

He definitely needs a full season in the AHL I would say.

I like what he's shown, but he's just not ready yet.

I could see his development taking 2 seasons in the AHL which is fine with me as long as he is progressing

Hopefully people are patient on here with him and Colbourne and let them develop

He has the raw tools to be a good player in the league

Possibly the most short-sighted call-up by the Leafs brass.

It was an emergency call-up and then Carlyle felt like he should actually play so it became a full call-up. With the injury situation, there was no way they could send him down really.

How will it help his development? He was in over his head, and ended up relegated to fourth line minutes. If anything, this may cause a regression (as this sort of thing often does).

Not to mention, there were a number of players with the Marlies who deserved a good look ahead of Ashton, such as Mueller, Kadri, D'Amigo, and Hamilton. Heck, even Scott deserves a look at this point.

The Leafs management just wanted to see their new toy and didn't bother to monitor him with the Marlies first to see if he was ready.

Again, awful call-up.

He wasn't an emergency call-up.

He was supposed to be an emergency recall but Brown was able to play and Carlyle still played Ashton anyways so he became a regular call-up.

as others have said, he's not close. he probably shouldn't play any games with the big team next season unless we end up in another tank.

he'll be valuable later on.
