I'm sure Liles will get moved once the other teams read about his hot rim skills.    :P

It would be nice, as I was heavily in favour of the Leafs using their compliance buyout on him. It's not like they couldn't afford it, I thought the buyout structure was pretty good also.

Best scenario would have been to buy out Liles with the compliance and buy out Komisarek with a non-compliance. Live with 2 years of Komi on the books at a reduced rate vs. Liles buried like he is or 8 years on the books. 

I think they must have felt there was a deal to be had out there for Liles or something. Maybe (hopefully) there still is.

I would have agreed with that avenue if the buyout would have resulted in a different breakdown, but the 850k or whatever in the first two years makes it a no-brainer for me and a good gamble that the cap would have increased enough to make the 2.7 million in the third year irrelevant, or at least inconsequential.

perhaps Liles, Blacker, Riemer and a first for Yakapov

That's way to much for Yakapov...the way he is playing his value will continue to drop every game. Last night he was on the top line with Hall out and was terrible. I'd take the first out maybe but I really dislike Yakapov's attitude and thing we'd be better off without the headache....

I watched a bit of the Marlie game the other day and saw Brennan shot from the right point only to have the puck go a little wide of the net with no one to pick up the rebound on the other side. The announcer said this had happened 4 times and this was just the second period.  I wonder what Spott is teaching as this is a rudimentary problem. No sooner had the announcer pointed this out than the Marlies had 6 men on the ice. And very very obvious. I am off base here. I would like to know what others think of this coach?

Planning to watch the Marlies game tonight via the AHL online on demand service. Anything or anyone I should look out for in particular?

I'm also a bit intrigued by the Utica arena. It looks very old school!
I Saw Jay McClement Score.

Only almost a period gone, but Smithson has stood out so far. He has plenty of NHL experience. Wonder if he could do a job? Definitely a bottom 6 job though.

Nice to see Kenny Ryan back in the mix with the Marlies. The kid has a lot of skill, and this is his time to show it.

Thinking one of 2 things here. Next year's All-Star game (this year's is in St. John's) or promo for the outdoor games vs Grand Rapids at Comerica Park as part of the Winter Classic. My money is on #2.

Eesh, looking at Burke's draft big/tough rather than skill approach is kind of ugly with the Marlies right now:

Brad Ross (2nd) + Tyler Biggs (1st) + Jamie Devane (3rd) = 2G 1A in 38 GP.

Brennan continues to have a standout season.

Forgot to mention McKegg, has 9 points in 15 games now.
