The list is capped at 20 skaters and 2 goalies. I've only watched 1 Marlies game (against St. John's) and parts of others. Which goalie would you drop?

Based on the numbers they've put up this season, Rynnas.

Assuming they've designated Scrivens as the starter for the Marlies, they might be hoping Owuya can sneak Reading into the playoffs and so he can get some starts there instead of backing up in the AHL.

Entirely why yes, I think that is why Owuya was sent to Reading and Rynnas recalled despite Rynnas playing poorly in Reading and Owuya playing lights out with the Marlies.  They want the two guys who have performed playing the lions share of games and this is the way that happens.

If it were up to me I'd have Owuya getting the lions share of games with the Marlies, and send Rynnas down. I'd also get a look at Owyua in the Leaf net as well before the years out.

At this point, since the Leafs have already used their 4 call-ups, that could only happen if Gus/Reimer get injured.

Yeah. That kinda sucks. I also don't understand why he isn't on this list. They've lost the last 3 games without him in net.

1.67 GAA and .945 save % in those 3 games, not the goaltending that has let them down.

The Marlies only scored 3 goals total in those three games. Scrivens was a star in one of them and his save% for the two games he played was .939 and .974.

The Marlies have some PP issues (pretty much all season) and scoring issues recently.

In theory, he should. Sometimes the lack of know how among AHLers can mess up guys like Gardiner some because people aren't where he might expect them to be. His skating and ability to recover will definitely help him be an asset but I'll be curious to see if he seems to find some of it confusing. It really threw Matt Stajan off for example because there's more positional chaos and it can be pretty nasty physically.

Frattin will help them as well.

That was always Stralman's problem too. In the AHL games I watched (about 10), he was so much better than the rest of the team. He'd send off beauty passes and the other player wouldn't be ready. On the other side, his linemates were constantly throwing passes into his skates. It was very frustrating to watch. You realize quickly how much of a team sport it is in those situations.

Meh, I look at the Marlies with skepticism now.  I mean Phillipe Dupuis has 20 points in 26 games with the Marlies.  He was absolutely useless up here.

I'm taking my kid to tonight's game. I just hope they can score some goals!

At the same time you can't possibly write off the achievements of every player in the AHL. Many develop into fine NHLers.

Haha, true :)

I find Junior stats funny sometimes. Can you guess this player? Stats from QMJHL.

Yeah, but it's odd, Ramzi did it as a 17 year old. Interesting that he was taken 28th overall and went back into the draft. Sometimes you never know.

In six years, he's gone from being a guy getting 108pts in 56 games in the QMJHL to a penalty-killing fourth liner in the NHL?  I would put him as a top six, either pass or fail.  I would of looked for a big huge grinding 4th liner myself.
