Game 7, 3-3 tied going to the 3rd.  Marlies only 2 shots in the 2nd, scored on one of them.

Rats!  6-3 loss

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?

He's got a 0.922 career save percentage in the AHL, which is pretty good but he's only averaged 24 games played in his 3 active seasons there. It's never really seemed like the Leafs organization was very high on him. Even this season I've said before that Bibeau held onto the starters job for way too long before Sparks was finally given it. He turns 24 next month and he hasn't actually been a starter for a full season in the AHL yet. Even if that's not entirely his fault it's not exactly a good sign.

It's not great, but, you know, less fluid play in the minors and such, and the impact that sometimes has on goalie stats.

And I need a goalie whose name I can pronounce without difficulty. Sparks or Sparky works just fine!

  • Keefe - had to really adjust his style to suit the team
  • Gauthier - 5 month recovery
  • Developmental Honesty with Players - gotta be blunt
  • The Example of Graduates - a variety of players have bought into the process and made the jump
  • How do you plan for next year? - balance of motivations
  • Importance of the Combine due to lower pick - more work goes into reviewing options and separation factors
  • Biggest Strides taken on the roster - Dermott, Johnsson
  • Impact of Player Development day-to-day - individualized programs for skills
  • Offseason Facility Use - it's open if they want, but it's important to go home too
