So they reach the 3rd round (one can dream ...) and Samsonov & Murray are/get hurt.
Woll hasn't played in 4-6 weeks? ...
As a 3rd stringer in the NHL, what practice is he getting?

He's going to have to get some games and decent practice to stay sharp.

I get the concern. If all 3 of these goalies get hurt, Dubas probably needs to get his resume in order. But I think there are some practical limitations.

If all 3 get hurt, I don't think that would be Dubas'S fault
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.

Yeah. I want Woll playing and staying in game shape. Having 3 goalies around is a good idea - but, the 3rd goalie should basically be a guy who you have riding the pine if one of the other guys gets hurt. To me, that's Kallgren, not Woll.

I get the rusty angle but I think the risk of injury in a Marlies game outweighs it.  No way to suss it out definitively, I acknowledge.

Probably a way to find a balance between not playing and playing.  The Marlies finish the season on April 15th/16th with games at home in Toronto.  They could send Woll down to play a game or two there.

The Marlies have clinched a division title already so they will play the winner of the 4/5 play in when they are done their best of 3.  So presumably the Marlies wouldn't play a game until likely Game 3 of the Leafs series.
