Ahh, good to know.  I will withdraw my upset at the refs.

I wouldn't... ;) I was at the game and the ref lost a bit of control. Tossed
Fraser for some reason. The amount of replays at the game was and is sorely lacking. Don't know why - may be a financial issue.
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

Went to the game last night and am going tonight as well. Really poor
representation by the Leaf fans. The building was barely 1/3 full and most were Heat fans.

You're complaining about the amount of Leafs fans at a Marlies game in Abbotsford BC? And also commenting in surprise that most of the fans were fans of the home team?

In Vancouver I could see it, but I'm sure not many would make the trek to Abbotsford for AHL, other than some die-hards.

Awesome that you went to both games, though.

Well when Rogers Arena is 50% or more in Leaf fans I would think you'd get a least a couple of thousand Leaf fans to see the Marlies - and the Heat only draw about 2000-2500 as many here are anti-Flames....

To my liking the Marleis are loosing too many games, they may easily dig themselves a pretty big hole to climb up.

Abbotsford is only 30 min away from Vancouver - unless you're thinking
of absolute downtown and then you'd add another 10 min tops. It's too bad. If it was the home to Vancouver's farm team they'd pull in 4-5,000
a game. The Flames also suckered the city of Abottsford into covering
team losses for the 10 year (I think) lease. Last year the taxpayers had to cough up over $2M IIRC. They need 4000 apparently to break even and they only drew 4655 with the Marlies and $1 hotdogs and $2 beer. I had 2 dogs for $2 and a water for $3.50...!! Should have had the beer!

But I thought Dallas Eakins was Jesus?

Link for tonight's game against the Houston Areos:

Scrivens gets the start tonight. As mentioned elsewhere, his job as starting goalie is now in question so he'll have to come up big if he wants to start the next one.

Marlies came back from being down 4-2 after 2 to win 6-4.  Scrivens didn't look very good through 2, but the team bailed him out.  Couple goals for Ashton, and one for Komarov as well.

While Scrivens hasn't been great so far, I think the team as a whole has been pretty poor. Eakins blaming Scrivens is pretty easy and transparent IMO.

Poor team chemistry/system is as much to blame in my eyes. A terrible PP has lost them a couple games, as well as a somewhat anemic offense.

At some point when Owuya takes over and if those problems keep up, the blame will fall on Eakins, where it should be ATM.

What are we talking about blame for, basically this is a very different Marlies than last year, the roster last year was continually moving around, the dynamic saw players moving up and down from the Leafs and many of the Marlies picked up their game and stepped up and played extremely well including the goalies. There are many new players as well.
What are they 8 or 9 games in?  I think you will see them gel in the next 4 to 6 games and climb the standings and them we can stop playing the critical Toronto game that is so popular

Struggles certainly, but maybe it means your lines suck and maybe we shouldn't be benching our two legitimate prospects on the Marlies so that Acton's kid gets icetime.
