Gilman getting down to business.

I think Greening and Clune might be Marlies lifers now.

It's interesting, because as fans we always think of AHL'ers are constantly trying to prove themselves as worthy NHL player candidates. With the Leafs depth up front, the odds of either of these guys getting another sniff is much less than another org, but they seem more than content to stay with the Marlies.

Its NHL facilities and lifestyle (other than bussing), a winning environment, and the knack for teaching and leading by example.

Kyle Baun has signed for my team in Belfast. Is he any good? The British league is probably about ECHL+ standard

ECHL+ is pretty good! Didn't think it was that good.

ECHL+ is pretty good! Didn't think it was that good.

The top end would be just about a half level below the German league now. If del played British league 10 times I'd say British would win 3 and there's be a couple of ties.

Most players in the league used to come from the ECHL but now there's a lot more from the AHL and even a lot of NHL experience- Belfast have Jim Vandermeer and Patrick Dwyer For example.
