2013-2014 Marlies Edition

With Hamilton and Acton gone, this gives greater roles and opens up more spots for the young guys. Hamilton will definitely be missed but I wonder what the line combos will be like.

I think the bolded players are on the Leafs to start the season.

I think Granberg will get some looks but then sent down to the minors to adapt to the NA game better. Probably get called up though.

I honestly think, outside of Rielly and Gardiner, that he is our best bet on the blue line prospect-wise. Love this player. Plays like a man and he's only 20. Very stoked.

Zigomanis is a UFA, as is Ranger. Also, as it stands at this moment, one of Ashton or D'Amigo will be up with the Leafs full time on the third line beside Bolland.

P.S.: Who is Smith?

Trevor Smith, signed him today. And I was assuming Zigo and Ranger stays with us

Very likely to sign a couple AHL contracts in next couple weeks and/or NHL 2-way contracts.

I'm not sure who fits the bill but there's always a couple of them every year.

They usually get signed at a later date when they are not offered their preferred one-way NHL contracts. They then assess the best team to go to.

I think D'amigo could slot in well with Bolland and Kulemin, and add a little bit of speed to that line. He's a gritty guy who's not afraid to go to the dirty areas, I think they could be a great two-way unit.

I don't like the idea of us having Biggs on the 4th line next year, like in WhatASaveDaves post. If D'amigo's with the big club next year, these would be my lines:

Ashton-Smith-Leivo
Ross-Mckegg-Zigo
Ryan-Carrick-Biggs
Devane-Crescenzi-Broll

Yeo/Brennan/Ranger-Holzer
Percy-Blacker
Marshall-Granberg

MacIntyre
Sparks

With Sparks getting a good number of games to see where his development is at.


This Marlies team looks a little weaker than in the last two years, and we've lost Eakins. We still have a lot of NHL calibre prospects, but no real high-end guys here.

Ross-Carrick-Biggs/Ryan could be an absolute pain to play against.

Really happy some of the veterans have moved on. I really liked Hamilton, sucks he is gone, but Scott, Acton, Yeo i'm happy left.

I feel the Marlies should be for our prospects, not filled with veterans.

Heck, I would be fine if Ziggy didn't come back. Make Ranger captain if he doesn't want to play in the NHL.

Spott did say that the Marlies should be very heavy on rookies and young players. You have Leivo, Percy, Biggs, MacWilliam, Granberg (likely) and Sparks all on their first year on pro contracts. That's a lot of players joining them.

So I do expect a veteran or two but likely not as much as this year.

And I agree, a veteran or two is fine, but you want to give your rookies as much ice time as you can.

I would be fine if Ziggy came back, but wouldn't be upset if he didn't

What kind of coaching style does Steve Spott go with?

It really sucks to lose Eakins..

I wouldn't count on Ashton/D'Amigo, or Blacker being in the AHL next season.

I think Liles will eventually be moved this summer.

I believe the plan is to play the same style as Carlyle. So the kids get used to how they need to play.

Things seem to set up for Randy Carlyle to be our coach for a LONG time.

Which I'm fine with, I like having a coach we KNOW will be here a long time. Enough with the 3 or 4 years and then switch

I think that RC really wants Ashton and Blacker to be up this year. It's most likely their jobs to lose in training camp.

They are fun to watch.

With Ryan Hamilton now gone who do you think will replace him as the next Marlies Captain? If Mike Zigomanis is back next season I think he would be the obvious choice.
