My take:

Kadri - Colborne - Zigomanis

Hamilton - Aucoin - Ashton

Deschamps - McKegg - D'Amigo

Komarov - Acton - Scott

x: Ross - Ryan - Abbott

ECHL: Carrick, Crescenzi, Devane, Brenner, Hughesman



Gardiner - Holzer

Blacker - Ranger

Fraser - Kostka

x: Gysbers - Yeo

ECHL: Grimshaw, Syvret



Scrivens

Owuya

x:Rynnas

ECHL: Engelage


I think every line has a little bit of everything; skill, energy and 2-way capabilities... even the press box. I think some players are interchangeable, but I took into consideration some of the lines/players that had chemistry. I tried to keep them together, like Deschamps and D'Amigo, Zigomanis and Colborne, etc.

So now, he's proven when given the opportunity he can score(NCAA and World Championships), he's proven to be reliable defensively, he's acknowledged as being an excellent skater (read any camp reports), he's physically mature.

Perhaps D'Amigo is cheating himself out of offensive opportunities by being reliable defensively?
The first time I heard of D'Amigo is that one WJC where he got 12 points in 7 games as the USA took gold. That is how I remember him and his offensive upside. That is a tough tourney.

Is Ranger on a contract with the Marlies?

Yes. And I thought I read somewhere that he has a NMC in it where he can't be signed by another team..so the Leafs would have first crack at him for a contract (is what I gathered from it).

I watched him at least the Gold Medal game U18. Not sure if I caught others, while ago now.

The lockout situation has everyone knocked down an extra peg. The forward lineup was going to be squeezed if there was a lockout or not anyways. There will be injuries and hopefully a season that will see callups so I'm not too concerned about the fresh out of junior players seeing primary AHL roles.

For example, there's also the likes of Sam Carrick, Jamie Devane, Tyler Brenner, and Andrew Crescenzi that you left off the forward lineup.
The plug also has no chance of being anything at the NHL level so like I said i'd rather focus on giving guys like Kadri, Colborne, Ross, McKegg etc ice time. Nothing is for sure with them either but they are much more important to our future.

I did leave out a few guys but I don't really expect them to amount to much at the next level...ECHL would be a good start for them.

Unless Scott completely ***** the bed, he'll be a starter. A very integral depth piece for the Marlies last year. Granted, he might ride the pine occasionally, but he's important to that team.

Eakins was "amazed" at what kind of shape Ranger is in. Felt he set the bar for rest of team. #greatstory more on @Leafs_TV tonight at 6pm

Insane.


I'm sorry but the fact a guy who has been off for 3 years is in the best shape on the team, I find a bit disturbing.

Just what the heck kind of a training regime is this team running?

While it is impressive, he obviously felt that he wanted to get back into hockey at some point (or at least give himself the chance to do so), so I highly doubt he went off smoking and eating cheeseburgers on the couch.

We don't know how out of shape he actually got. Or if he was training the whole time. And it is easier to get muscle back than it is to get it in the first place. It is a great story, and I obviously wish him the best, but lets not pretend like he is some superman or our other prospects aren't trying just because some 28-year old with NHL conditioning and knowledge is testing better than some 20-year olds still putting on muscle and learning for the first time.

Wouldn't be suprised if when he was out of the game, he had been working as a personal trainer, as with coaching his bantam hometown hockey team.

Only a guess here, but I think he is locked out, similar to Wade Redden. The Leafs did not assign him to the Marlies, and now the Leafs won't have to pay him his 1 million dollar salary.

Gardiner - Holzer

Blacker - Ranger

Fraser - Kostka

x: Gysbers - Yeo

ECHL: Grimshaw, Syvret



Scrivens

x:Rynnas

ECHL: Engelage


I think every line has a little bit of everything; skill, energy and 2-way capabilities... even the press box. I think some players are interchangeable, but I took into consideration some of the lines/players that had chemistry. I tried to keep them together, like Deschamps and D'Amigo, Zigomanis and Colborne, etc.
Kadri - Aucoin - Zigomanis - 1st line.
Hamilton - Colborne - Ashton - 2nd line.
Deschamps - Mckegg - D'Amigo - 3rd line.
Ross - Komarov - Scott - 4th line
X: Abbot, Ryan, & Acton
ECHL: Carrick, Crescenzi, Devane, Brenner, Hughesman

Gardiner - Ranger
Blacker - Holzer
Fraser - Kotska
X: Gysbers - Yeo
ECHL: Grimshaw, Syvret

Scrivens
Owuya
ECHL: Rynnas

1st line: I truly think they will give Kadri a shot in the center area while Aucoin helps him find the game and Zigo helps him get the faceoff area to work.
2nd line: Colborne and Ashton really showed good promise in the post season with good chemistry. They also worked on and off the ice from what I hear, hamilton will defintely provide good leadership and clearing out people for those two.
3rd: Mckegg gets a full shot in the center if he can get his stuff together, Deschamp playmaking on the wings and D'amigo being the sparker doing a bit of everything.
4th: Ross gets to start from the bottom before we move him to the top, while Komarov gets the center spot and get working on being a pest along with Ross. Scott the hard worker will just help them in the case.

Edit:
1st D pair: I think Ranger with Gards will help each to get back to form and be for the NHL.
2nd D pair: Reason why I put these two is because I think Blacker can go wild while Holzer keeps a steady pace for him.
3rd D pair: Fraser the good veteran and same with Kotska, will be a steady pair to shut down for the goalie.

Based on the success they had last year, Holzer will be playing with either Fraser or Gardiner. Blacker will likely play with Kostka or Yeo. I personally think the lines will look best like:

Gardiner-Holzer
Fraser-Ranger
Kostka-Blacker
Yeo, Gysbers

Its alot easier to train for gains when you aren't putting your body through an 82 game schedule + practice. Most hockey players try to make their gains in the summer and maintain through the season.

So really, not disturbing. Just means Ranger is a gym rat.

Reasonable as well. I was thinking more of the fact Ranger would personally want the aid of someone NHL ready and prepared. You know? However I really hope Blacker brings out his offense this year, the guy always has that first year of getting used to the pace and then boom, big threat on the ice.

"Fat" Kadri scored against scored against Ben Scrivens for team Blue.
Carter Ashton scored a goal against Mark Owuya for team White.
Mckegger scored for White as well.
Spencer Abbot scored against Andrew Engelage with a wrister.

Carlyle & Burke both were in Attendance for this game.

Eakins has started to implent a new and more defensive system in the Marlies Games as he wants to change it to suit Carlyle's game.
