6. A name to learn: Alexander Barabanov. The Russian left-shot winger will be 26 in June, and word is a few NHL executives will be going to see him in person. His 46 points in 58 games for St. Petersburg were 18th in the KHL last season. Hes at three points in the first 12 games this year, but his ice time is down from 15:26 to 13:19. Theres always a concern that when a player in Barabanovs situation sees that drop, its because the organization feels it will lose him.

Were already looking for Torontos Russian Whisperer, one of my overseas contacts joked. Thats Senior Director of Player Evaluation Jim Paliafito.

Marlies & Prospect Talk / Marlies & Growlers 2019-2020

Let's kick things off for the Marlies thread with The Athletic's Q&A with head coach Sheldon Keefe.

When theres the amount of turnover in the Leafs roster as there was this summer, many of the players the Leafs signed are bound to be sent to the Marlies. What are the steps you take to bring them on board?

Last year we had a lot of continuity in the leadership. I think its important to have great leadership at the AHL level, without a doubt. But I also think with your young prospects, if the leadership doesnt change, the young players will really struggle to take a step. No matter what, theyre going to be the younger guy to the more established player. But when theres a leadership change though, its a great opportunity. Anyone who ends up coming down whos played for us for a year or two, now all of a sudden theyre the most tenured people. The young people are going to have a bigger voice. I think thats a really important piece in their development.

Why is it important to empower players sooner?

We ask a lot of our players. We ask a lot of their time and the standard we want them to bring every day. Were trying to make them NHL players. We think that takes a lot of work and time. Sometimes what they think they need to do and what we think they need to do are two different things. So the more that we can involve them in that process and making them understand more of what were doing, why theres an extra workout, why theyre not playing a game but were asking them to work with a strength coach instead. They need to know why were doing that. They cant look at it as a punishment. It has to be part of the process. Over time, as theyre established and more important players to your team, you want them to be involved in the decision making, when we travel, when the days off are.
