After Monday's round of cuts, instead of returning eligible draftees to their CHL clubs, the Marlies announced they would send them to the Solar Bears. Only Korostelev, of the drafted prospects, was released and will return to the Peterborough Petes.

The logjam runs all the way through the organization, and the Solar Bears are being leveraged as an additional tier of development more closely tied to the big club than most affiliates.

It's very gummed up this season (didn't have to be; it is what it is right now), but there is hope on the horizon for these prospects with a healthy handful of expiring contracts on the Leafs.
Bozak and JVR are still a big part of this team. I don't agree with ridding them just to make room for a few prospects. I am sure if they could have improved their D in a meaningful way by trading one they would have.

It's not the worst thing to have some NHL tier depth in system for when injuries happen. A top 9 forward or 2 goes down and the Leafs won't miss a beat with the caliber of players in their system.

At the same time, both the Marlies and Solar Bears should be VERY fun to watch this year.

Is it even worth having a Solar Bears thread somewhere?

When do the Marlies start and will they be telecasting a lot of games?

If you're wondering when Leivo would possibly see ice time with the Leafs, well, let's look at the logjam on the Marlies. Fortunately, the AHL has a built-in solution that might be amenable to the team for some of our old-prospects that probably don't really have a shot at the big club.

Wouldn't shock me if he doesn't last the full season.

Would he be allowed to be hired mid-season by someone else? Because that seems insane.

If it's for a HC gig at the NHL level I think he'd be allowed.

If your AHL staff or AGM's are offered one of the top jobs at the NHL level it's considered professional courtesy to let them go.

How much is it Keefe, and how much is it the Leafs suppressing their NHL youth for the tank year, and keeping a huge backlog of NHL-ready players in the AHL?

The Leafs would have to sign-off on it, but, it's possible. A team hiring an AHL coach from another franchise would certainly be an unusual move, but I still wouldn't be surprised to see it happen.

In the offseason, sure, but I'm fairly certain other teams consider it a professional courtesy to not poach guys like that mid-season. I really can't remember a time where that's happened before. That's usually why teams name intern head coaches.

Like CtB said that's the case when the team has an off-season to replace them and make other plans. I don't think a team would be on-board with a disruption to their AHL team as a professional courtesy while potentially improving a competitor.

That's fair, I just assumed that if it was for a direct promotion, they'd let them go, but I understand where you're coming from, that makes sense.
