Marlies stars off to Leafs camp

http://www.torontosun.com/2013/01/10...-to-leafs-camp

among who are present are
goaltender Ben Scrivens,
defencemen Jake Gardiner,
Mike Kostka,
Korbinian Holzer and
Mark Fraser were joined by forwards
Matt Frattin and Nazem Kadri
. They are expected to work out either alone on the Marlie pad Thursday or with the Leaf and NHLers who’ve been on the parent team’s rink next door since the lockout ended.

joe colborne is not there

Colborne making the team was unlikely to start the season seeing as everyone healthy. With a shortened camp I'm not surprised that he wasn't invited, if it was a regular camp he would be there no question.

The battle on defense at camp should be good.

1. I think Scrivens makes it as the backup (barring a potential Luongo trade), currently he is the most experienced in our system to backup Riemer.

2. Holzer IMO I think has a good chance at cracking the blueline and sticking. Right now Phaneuf/Gunnar/Komi are the only locks, Gardiner I believe is still injured but even if he comes back there is still two open spots on the blueline.

3. Kadri needs to have a strong camp, he's turning 23 its time he proves himself as a top 6 forward.

4. I think Fratiin makes the team, he fits into the teams mold of being fast/tough/skilled.

Nice to see Fraser get a look. I like his game with the Marlies.

Colborne has been brutal for a long time now. I don't know how much damage that wrist injury did to him, because he's been sucking for a while now.

I hope RC finds spots for Frattin and Kadri both. Especially Kadri. Just play him out and see what we have.

You mean he's on a "one way" contract?

Players signed to AHL contracts aren't eligible to play in the NHL.

He was right about the AHL contract(means he's signed on with the Marlies and can't play in the NHL), but he was wrong about not being able to participate in camp. Ranger can try-out with any team in the NHL if they ask and if he wants to, if they like what they see, can offer him an NHL contract.

Anyone not on this list is not eligible to be called up by the Leafs. This includes Paul Ranger and Mike Zigomanis. They signed AHL contracts with the Marlies, not NHL contracts.

Is that how it actually works with the shortened training camp? I can't say I've heard anything concerning this.

That's how it would work with any camp. Since he doesn't belong to the Leafs he can be offered a contract or try-out by any NHL team. The Leafs could offer him a try-out if they wanted.

I think a reason for him not being there though is because he doesn't want to be at the moment. Chuckwoods stated this recently(not directly what he said, but along those lines).

I imagine Ranger will get a contract offer from the Leafs as soon as they are able to do it.

He can still be signed to an NHL contract.

I agree Holzer likely sticks, but where did Liles go?? And how are there 2 open spots? When Franson signs and Gards get healthy, we have one opening and thats the 7th spot.

Could've sworn I heard a few days ago Ranger was not interested in playing in the NHL this year and wanted to finish off the year in the AHL. Can't find the source though.

I think when he is ready for the NHL though it'll be with us.

Add Liles too.

If Gardiner is ready that leaves one spot for Holzer, Kostka or Rielly.

Given the format of our D and the style Carlyle likes I see Holzer winning it (unless Rielly knocks everyones socks off).

Fraser fits Coach Carlyle's MO. Would not be surprised if he makes the team.

Hopefully Kadri doesn't get traded when camp opens. Excited to see these guys though.

Apparently he's happy in the AHL and wants to stay and Leafs don't have plans to sign him. That's what Bob McKenzie said a few days ago.

Come on, that's the Sun, not the Star. Have some respect for a slightly less ridiculous news organization.
