Gardiner coming up is up to Carlye and Nonis, but man, to see the Leaf D was perfect in a game? haha....
Pretty sure Ulf was being sarcastic. Pointing out that players make mistakes at every level, and that in itself is not necessarily a reason to keep a player down in the A.

Hell, Gunnarsson backing off the play too early gave the Boston skaters room and turned a Leafs chance into a Boston goal. Not a turnover, but definitely a mistake.

Sarcasm is an often missed linguistic tool....

he has stepped it up a level, he took his time, mistakes are few and far between, and his offensive game is finally starting to catch up
he took his time, but now I think is primed for a breakout season next year
than compete for a spot maybe half way though next season

Thanks, I feel like he could be a solid top 4 dman someday, hopefully it can happen.

I can envision Kostka and Holzer turning over the puck in their own end leading directly to a goal at the NHL level, and Fraser put on the spin cycle by teams taking advantage of his zero footspeed, though the puck doesn't seem to go in much on him.

Why is Carlyle so lenient with three borderline NHLers and so exacting on a guy who was our number two last season?

Marlies were bad today. A couple of weak goals agsinst Disappointed that Ross and Carrick were scratched. Ashton had a nice tilt. And it was $14 for parking

Ashton with a big tilt vs. Nemisz; clear win for Ashton, he was throwing bombs. (y)

Joe Colborne skating better than I have seen him yet, the work he has put in this area is paying off.

I'm going to pay extra attention on him, Joe C, Ross, and Ashton today. He took a big hit behind the net earlier in the game by 2 opposing players, he has to be more aware of those plays if he is to stay healthy.

Yeo scores a shorthanded beauty. 2-0 Marlies.

After 1, here are my quick observations

I have to say, Paul Ranger looks like a solid D man, good anticipation, steady on both sides of the puck, solid pick up. I thought he was the Marlies best D man in the first.

Jake Gardiner had a good first period, made a good play to ice the puck on a penalty kill, made some good outlet passes, he was outmuscled on the boards a few times, he needs to put on more muscle to prevent this in the NHL level. Less lone Ranger rushes than I have seen prior.

The best news is even though it won't show on the scoreboard, this is the most impressive I have seen Joe Colborne yet. He has filled out, looks faster, skates strong, and seems to be using his frame to finish checks. He looks like a man now, no longer a long thin framed player. Was even used on the PK by Eakins. Only thing is I want to see him shoot the puck to see if his wrist is 100%, but everything else I have seen from him thus far, leads me to believe he is NHL ready to atleast play a 3rd line role this year if we need him. This is definitely his last season in the AHL, liked and encouraged what I see in him.

Ashton looks the same as I saw him last, he's physical and gets involved almost every shift, I do think he needs to bear down and shoot more. He's NHL ready also, maybe not as a scorer, but he can definitely do what Komarov is doing in the NHL.

Gardiner tried to go 1 on 5 and coughed up the puck at the blueline.

Just when I praised him for no solo one man rushes he does one.

Ross with a great play at the blue line to set D'amigo away to score. 3-0 Marlies.

I don't see Blacker, Devane out there today. Must be sitting.

I am 100% confident in saying this, barring anymore setbacks, Joe Colborne will be hard to keep out of our lineup in the very near future.

Boston may regret trading him, since Kaberle was not really needed to win the cup and only played less than a season with the B's.
