Obviously sicker than we want him to be and they want a roster spot/body to take on the road trip if he isn't good to go for Thursday.Maybe this is just a temporary demotion but I think it's worth noting that Holmberg has somewhat struggled lately. Over the Leafs' last 15 games his CF% is 45.2 (lowest among forwards other than Simmonds who only has 3 GP), GF% is 45.45, and xGF% is 41.22%. Throw in the fact that he isn't very good on draws and generally doesn't get used for defensive zone face-offs and I think you can make the argument that at the very least the 4C spot probably isn't the ideal position for him right now. Granted the Leafs have struggled to find a successful trio there almost all season.

QuoteThere have been times this season when Nylander has run into traffic en route to a game while navigating downtown Toronto's clogged arteries. Nylander will realize he might be late if he keeps trying to grind through traffic coming south on Bay Street, "where turning into the rink is awful," he attests.In a rare moment of hurriedness, he'll call veteran Leafs assistant equipment manager Tom Blatchford and tell him where he is. Blatchford will then leave the Scotiabank Arena, run to Nylander and drive his car, inch-by-inch, through traffic while Nylander beats the traffic on foot to the arena.
Quote from: A Weekend at Bernier's on January 16, 2023, 04:50:50 PMThere's definitely some bad luck involved, that's for sure. But some of the more astute members on the forum (I'm looking at you, Herman and CTB) clearly noted in the past that Robertson's stature, fearless approach, and skating mechanics (hunched over) expose him to greater risk of injury that other similar players (Caufield, for example). I really hope he can get this figured out because he's going to be running out of chances real soon. I'm not convinced he's going to be the player we all hope he will be for the Leafs, but these injuries may eventually put his NHL career at risk.
