Good work Herminator, stop brushing with toothpaste and start brushing with paint thinner!

If I had paint stains, that just might work.

Brooks is like... better Bozak. Bracco is like... not as productive Marner.

Let's see some lines... assuming Kapanen makes the jump.

Rychel - Mueller - Johnsson | Mueller should have lots of options down low or in the high slot
Greening - Brooks - Bracco | Greening adds speedy size to this line of smart playmakers
Timashov - Moore - Grundstrom | So many alley-oops from left half wall to back post
Lindberg - Aaltonen - Smith | Smith is the sniper on this line. Haha
Clune - Gauthier - Soshnikov | Sosh will shoot from wherever, so let's make sure the goalie's eyes are obstructed

Dermott - Liljegren | because this is what we all want to see
Borgman - Rosen | Free chemistry; slightly secret crosstalk too
Nielsen - LoVerde | LoVerde is, by all accounts, upper-tier AHL; should teach Nielsen defense.
Valiev - Holl | Marlies classic. Might be a tire fire.

Missing some players on AHL only deals:

JJ Piccinich
Jean Dupuy
Max Novak

Won't be surprised to see the three of them with the Solar Bears though.

Oh yeah, JJ. I think he slots in actually, because the Marlies are astoundingly short on RWers with Griffith and Kapanen gone/graduated.

I also forgot to mention Marchenko, who if he is not traded or picked up on the waiver wire, will help bolster our numerically weaker RD side. Eric Fehr is another possibility, but I think he gets traded.

He needs waivers to pass through, so he's pretty much not going to be a Marlie.

Dubas adds depth to the right side defense with another reclamation project. Big, mobile defenseman with offensive instincts that weren't nurtured earlier.

Last I heard from Mirtle via the Leaf Report a couple weeks ago was that Gauthier's injury is baaaaad. Horrific. Muscle torn off the bone, especially on a longer limb of a rather tall person. Surgery fixed it up but the road to recovery will push beyond training camp and probably season start.

Edit: I forgot to capitalize Gauthier's name!

That is a real sad thing to hear, in the AZ game I attended he was a very strong presense on the ice, I believe he may have even scored (not sure now), but he had a couple of great chances in that game and was noticeable. Hopefully this is not the end, just a sidestep in his development.
