with Kadri and Frattin likely on the big club, and Aucoin leaving, it opens up room for McKegg and Brad Ross

With the Leafs losing 3 of their top forwards, 2 defenseman AND starting goaltender, they will hurt quite a bit.

Eakins will have to show what he's made off.

Garth Snow is an idiot of a GM. He just literally goes around claiming everyone who hits waivers. How does he still have a job?

They lost a D, but added Mottau so that eases the pain a bit.

Youth will need to step up and some players will need to bounce back a bit offensively such as Greg Scott and Jerry D'Amigo.

can somebody clarify if they changed the waiver conditions in the new CBA? I always thought it had to do with how many games you have played not whether its your 2nd contract.

True.

McKegg and Colborne should get a good amount of minutes.

Of course they do. Waivers are the only way the Isles can get anyone to play for them.

I wonder if Nonis will grab Brian Strait from Pittsburgh. I think he has a decent upside.

I don't know about upside but he's solid, not flashy just makes the right play. Not sure where'd he fit on the blueline though.

Even then it's a bit of a struggle.

i.e. Evgeni Nabokov

Aucoin must be happy as this will give him a chance to play in the NHL this year.

This is also good for the Marlies as it will provide more crucial PP and TOI/G and opportunities for Leafs prospects Colborne and D'Amigo and McKegg etc.

"Play the Kids" isn't only a NHL desire, but extends to the development system and AHL as well.

I was thinking the same thing. He can now make more money and get NHL minutes rather than AHL.


It sucks for the Marlies but we have the young guys who can hopefully step up. I.E Colborne, McKegg.

Maybe he's doing a Moneyball version for hockey? He'll be the last one to laugh after they break the wins in a row record, then goes down 4 straight in the playoffs!!!

I want Nonis to claim Taormina from Tampa. I thought he was really underrated when in played with New Jersey and would be a much better upgrade than having Holzer, Komisarek or Franson playing in the top six. He's also still young at 26 and been playing decently so far in the AHL.

LOL. Waivers, the NHL's version of human trafficking.










Take it easy, I'm not making light of that situation.

Kind of a drag to lose Aucoin but it's all in the name of development. He was a good soldier for the Marlies. All the best to him on his new team.

I heard Leafs allowed Marlies to train with them; so it's possible a few were not officially "at camp".

Irving on waivers. What are the chances Leafs claim him?

How many roster spots can a team have?? Isn't it 50? So with Lombardi traded and Aucoin claimed, we are slowly getting more room to allow more players coming in with trades.

That's the max number of contracts yes. A trade would be a possibility. I have a feeling we'll be making a claim ourselves.
