Marlies & Prospect Talk / Re: 2017-18 Marlies

He plays 4th line mostly, as he's behind Aaltonen, Mueller, and Gauthier, and Greening (occasionally). He also started the season off with mono, so there's that.

Thanks Herman.  So its as I thought, both hurt and 4th line minutes.

Based on your (or anyone else's) viewing of him, can we pencil him in for a wing spot in 2020 or so?  Too early to tell? 

How's Bracco looking to folks?

Any one know what's up with Adam Brooks? 

Tears it up for 2 straight years in Junior but only 6 points in 33 games.  Not bad for a rookie...but not what I was expecting.  4th line minutes?  Hurt?


Martin (he is unlikely to get here again and he did play well)

Polak played well as well. 

Great win. 

That Marner goal should have counted.  Quick made a move AFTER the obvious goalie contact to make a save but was outmaneuvered by Marner.  To my eyes he put himself out of position.



Zaitsev and JVR (for the important GT goal)

Great win.  Man this team is fun to watch!   This is going to be a fun ride. 

Gardiner (I will continue to excuse the not so great plays due to the amazing skating and passing)

First time in a really long time I'm excited for the start of a season.

Go Leafs Go!!!

That's disappointing. Kaskisuo finishes the playoffs with a .892 save percentage in 10 games. He also put up a .899 save percentage in 32 ECHL games this season. Orlando's other goalie, Ryan Massa, was at .912 in 41 games so it's not like it was a team issue. Despite his little hot streak when he was called up he's likely a nothing prospect.

I'd try to find a veteran AHL goalie to platoon with Sparks next season and cut bait with both Kaskisuo and Bibeau. Maybe take a chance on a NCAA or European goalie for the ECHL club.

Didn't watch much of the Marlies at all, but is Sparks a potential legit NHL'er?  A viable backup even?

Give me one of those NAS guys please!

I would imagine that NAS will likely be trading one of Arvidsson, Sissons or a Ellis since at least one of these 3 will likely be exposed in the expansion draft and are likely to be drafted by LV if available.

I think Nashville 100% protects/keeps all 4 of their big defencemen. At forward they'll protect Johansen, Neal, Forsberg, and Arvidsson.

That'll leave guys like Colin Wilson, Craig Smith, and Calle Jarnkrok available. All good 3rd line players but having to lose one of them won't be the end of the world.

Exactly - I think Minnesota is in more trouble than Nashville.  And even that can be fixed with a deal directly with Las Vegas.

Lou Lam still influencing the draft results I see...

NJ Devils win the draft lottery.

Surprised Nylander didn't get a nod, he was the only rookie to win rookie of the month twice this season.

There were certainly years where Nylander probably would have won this award. This years class was just bonkers. Matt Murray went 32-10-4 with the 5th best save percentage among starters and really never even stood a chance to be nominated for this. any other year a final 3 of Nylander, Marner and Murray would be a fantastic calder class.  None were nominated.
