Good for him. Hamilton is about as much of a character guy you can find. Sink or swim, he's going to give you his all every time.

If he can't go back down without clearning waivers, then I see him spending the rest of the year mixing it up between the press box and the 4th line.

Grabo traded, McClement to the third line, Hamilton centres the fourth line?

Eklund has a lot of hit or miss rumours, but he is saying the Leafs are front runners for Bouwmeester, Roy and Boyes...

He may actually ride the press box more often that not, especially if we are healthy.

Ashton and Colborne benefit more from the additional minutes in the AHL than the few minutes in the NHL.
hmm... I see.

Was thinking their might be a top 9 spot open. If Hamilton is on the 4th line, im fine with it.

Idk, we've been talking about getting a good partner for Phaneuf for a while now. Maybe they plan on subtracting a forward(s) and shutting Gunnarsson down? Who knows.

I'm happy to see Hamilton get another chance, but If it's just to replace Lupul for a game or 2, why not call up someone who doesn't have to clear waivers? Very interesting indeed.

On second thought he's just taking Komi's spot for now, so they could bench him if they have to.

He is maybe needed for a game tonight, next game for Marlies in on Friday.

Lol again, get this **** out of here.

If you have to say "It's Eklund, take it with a grain of salt" then you know you should not be posting it!

There is a whole new philosophy in Toronto now that rewards players on merit of performance and rids the organization of "sense of entitlement". I love the new management approach that rewards players regardless of age, experience nor contract as that is what breeds a desire to win by playing the best performing players. Nonis has proven on multiple occasions now that he is not going to let NHL contracts rule his decisions nor create road blocks for more deserving players in the process.

As a result Hamilton has earned his chance with the Leafs based on his contribution and performance with the Marlies. While it might only be for a few games as a result of the Lupul outcome, he still gets a chance.

My point is if Ashton or Colborne would be called up, they wouldn't necessary lose any Marlies time.

it could go both ways i guess, my assumption is that they are rewarding a guy who has spent some time in the ahl with some NHL time and experience, im fairly certain eakins is in more then love with this guy, so maybe they're just listening to eakins?, although say they trade a FW for a D, and Lups is out, that means they would need 2 FW's, and im fairly certain mclaren's the only odd one out most nights, meaning they's need another FW till Lups is back, but in that case, they would call up a guy with a 2way

Why would this recall result in any upcoming trades?

I agree what Mess said he got rewarded for all his hard work on the farm.

I think it will be very quiet trading deadline for the leafs… Too many teams still in the mix and crazy prices...

For tonight if lups is suspended, the lines might look something like this…

JVR – Bozak – Kessel
MAC-Kadri-Kulemin
Komarov/Hamilton-Grabo-Frattin
Orr-Hamilton/Komarov-McLaren
