That's not surprising. Sparks going down is though, many assumed he would be the starter with the Marlies but Bibeau started the season opener and Gibon won today.

Tell Don that all he needs is "Loov".  Seriously Don, you is da Biggs guy in hockey show business. Don, where the hell is Stuart Percy from Flemishland?  Where is Rielly from Potatoland?
and Andres Johnson scoreds something like 18 points in a 5 game tournament this past week.

Time for Don to sign a new tune, the Ballard Shuffle ended when Hal was planted.

Looks like the Solar Bears will have a very good team.  The snowbirds will have a team to watch.

Blake Kessel also went down to the ECHL

As for 2011 1st rounder 21 yr old Biggs and 2010 2nd rounder 22 yr old Ross, their potential NHL careers are "done like dinner". If they can't crack an AHL roster as a forward at that age, they're never going to accomplish much in the NHL. Ditto for 24 yr old dman Knodel and 25 yr old Blake Kessel.

Sparks is a different case as they want him to get some starts.

I'm willing to cut Knodel a little more slack - this will be his first full pro season. I don't think he has a ton of potential, but, I'm not going to take this cut as an indication of much for him, yet. As for the rest, I agree. They're all very much long shots to have more than a cup of coffee in the NHL.

I hope Kontiela is doing a lot of skating work with Barb Underhill.  He seems to have the playmaking ability.

Sparks and Gibson might switch spots fairly soon unless they want Sparks starting in ECHL.

Gibson has looked shaky today giving up 4 in the 2nd period.

Its early, but since the playoffs last year he seems to have found another gear.

Nice to be able to develop a top goalie prospect that will make the team in a year or two. Gives the Leafs some future options with Reimer a part of a trade package.  I feel something in the air with Edmonton by the way.

Apparently Leivo is playing LW for the Marlies?  Clearly this is preparation for a blockbuster trade involving Lupul.   :D
