The Rosen thing is interesting to me. Is the consensus that he's played himself into the 1st alternate role due to his development through the season, or that Marincin, Holl and Ozighanov have played themselves out of it?

Reason I ask, is because most of Rosen's NHL appearances to date, including preseason work, can only be generously termed as "somewhat lacking".

I don't remember it like that.  I just don't remember it much at all.  He didn't get that many games in.
He has literally only played 4 games with the Leafs and has played 116 games with the Marlies.  By all accounts, he has become an extremely reliable all-around defenseman for the Marlies.

In 17/18 his preseason performance was good enough to earn himself a spot in the line-up to start the season. I won't pretend to remember how well he performed but he did have a 58% CF in 4 regular season games, but was 1-3 in GF. In the 18/19 preseason he only played 3 games but the defence line-up was also 100% set already and his waiver status meant he was likely going back down instead of Marincin/Holl, so there wasn't much to play for.

But for what it's worth it sure sounds like he's emerged as one of the best defencemen in the entire AHL this season.

I have watched quite a few Marlies games and Rosen is ready, great skater, has poise with the puck, which is what I would like to say about a few existing Leaf D-Men.
