All Marlies bound I'd imagine, Greening might be a Captain candidate.

Yay! I was hoping they'd retain Greening.

The re-signing of Greening, and the addition of LoVerde and Mueller will fill out the Marlies roster needs.  The addition of LoVerde (defence) will give the Marlies a right-handed d-man, while Mueller (centre) will provide at this much-needed position.  The Marlies had to shift Greening a left-winger to centre, and with Mueller it'll allow for more flexibility particularly with Greening.

Greening was tasked with moving from the wing to centre for the Marlies this year, and become one of the team’s most useful faceoff men and defensive forwards, while also chipping in 10 goals and 14 assists in 69 games.

As for Mueller and Loverde, the two comfortably fit into major holes that the Marlies had last year. Mueller is a right-handed centre who scored 67 points in 68 games for the Tuscon Roadrunners last year and is typically good to float around the 0.8-1.0 point per game mark in the AHL. Loverde is a right-handed defenceman, who has been the captain of the Manchester Monarchs and Ontario Reign for the past three seasons. He’s not shy to land his name on the scoresheet either; the 28-year-old American put up 35 points in 61 games last year.

The Marlies’ biggest weaknesses in depth were at centre (hence Greening’s conversion) and right defence (Justin Holl and William Wrenn were the only two regulars shooting the correct hand on that side).
