2017-18 Marlies
« on: June 30, 2017, 11:19:41 AM »
What better way to kick off the new Marlies thread than with the announcement that Dubas has re-signed Dicky Clune!

Justin Bourne appears to be leaving his video coaching gig for the Marlies to write for The Athletic.

Getting his voice out of Lou's cone of silence is a boon to the community.

Development Camp Roster Announced

https://www.nhl.com/mapleleafs/news/maple-leafs-announce-development-camp-details/c-290240924

37 of the 57 invitees are from outside the organisation, it'll be interesting to see if anyone sticks around.

More evidence that this guy doesn't even exist.

@ScottWheeler
The Leafs have invited two of my top undrafted prospects to development camp in Austen Keating and Linus Nyman.

Some rumblings on social media that Sheldon Keefe will be one of the candidates interviewing for the vacant Coyotes job.

Although perhaps fittingly, one of the others is Dallas Eakins.

Justin Holl's been re-signed a 1-year, two-way contract. Dependable right-handed defenceman from the Marlies last season.

I wonder if Eakins gets another shot.  He was a disaster in Edmonton, although I don't know if that was all his fault or just the culture of losing that was in Edmonton at the time.  Coach Eakins seemed to rub alot of the media the wrong way with his pronouncements and attitude after he got the job too.

I miss Griffith.

Current Marlies, with more to come.
LWCRW
RychelGreeningKapanen
Aaltonen*MooreBracco*
SoshnikovBrooks*
TimashovMeuller
JohnssonGauthier+
Grundstrom*Fehr
LindbergSmith
Clune

LDRD
DermottHoll
ValievLoVerde
Nielsen
Rosen*
Borgman*

* Newbs
+ Busted

Oddly enough, the LW is a position of depth and strength on the Marlies, opposite of the Leafs' situation (until trades happen). Soshnikov is a left shot, but plays almost exclusively on the right side (shot happy), and should be on the Marlies to start the season thanks to waiver exemption and being not as good as everyone else on the right side. Kapanen might be a victim of waiver-exemption as well, so that'd inject some scoring.

Both Grundstrom, Johnsson, and Aaltonen can play RW thanks to Euro league experience. All of our Centres (so far) are lefties though, so that's not exactly ideal for the transition game if we're trucking up the ice with the easiest pass being to the backhand of at least one player. I think J.J. Piccinich gets an AHL contract (even though his rights haven't expired yet) as he really only tops out as bottom-6 AHL.

As is the case with the Leafs and the league as a whole, our LD side is overflowing, while our right side is a desert. Rosen can play RD, and Nielsen might as well shift over to take advantage of his shot, given that the defensive drop is pretty much moot with his terrible defense to begin with. Maybe Jesper Lindgren makes the trip across the Atlantic with so many other Swedes on the team to help him feel at home.

I'm real interested to see how Brooks, Grundstrom, Aaltonen and Bracco do this season.  Leafs have so many forward prospects I hope some break through.

I'm pretty excited to see what Timashov can do with more ice time (and someone like Bracco or Johnsson to feed).

I expect we'll move on from a handful of prospects pretty soon, starting with Lindberg, Rychel, Valiev, and Soshnikov as they don't appear to fit the team going forward, but have trade not-insubstantial value.

And these guys probably aren't getting ELCs: Vesey (you had one job!), Engvall, Joshua, Piccinich, Bobylev, Chebykin, Mattinen, Middleton

Edit: Jeff posted this before I did, but I swear I didn't see it until now.
