I don't know. Matthews has been dragging Hyman around all season. Leipsic and Rychel look better, and Matthews will be a year older.
I guess I'm setting my bar slightly higher than "better than Hyman".

As we all should. But I'm wonder about the Leafs' current depth, where players might slot in...

==Nik's 1L bar==
Leipsic
Leivo
Rychel?
Hyman
Martin

I guess I'd have to see what Leipsic and Rychel could do at the NHL level before I put them into any sort of definitive slot on the depth chart. I don't think either of them have shown enough to the point where you can definitively say they'll be really good top 6 forwards and, as a result, the Leafs should probably keep an eye open for other options at the position.

"Better than Hyman" .  That is now my second favorite potential band name next to "Memories of Wonderland"

Toronto Marlies‏ @TorontoMarlies
#Marlies News: The Marlies have acquired F Cal O'Reilly, reassigned from Buffalo.

Well, Marlies just solved their 1C problem. O'Reilly's bounced around the NHL, AHL, and KHL the past few years. Seems like the typical AAA player. 42 points in 47 games in the AHL this season.

Guess who the Marlies are conveniently playing tonight? Saves on shipping fees.

It's a loan from the Sabres to the Marlies, a la Raffi Torres was loaned by the Leafs to his existing team, the San Jose Barracuda, or when the sens picked up Matt Frattin but loaned him back to the Marlies.

I get the Torres thing: SJ got rid of a contract...but this is different...why would Buffalo want to help out the Marlies?

O'Rielly is disgruntled with the Amerks/Sabres and Tim Murray cares about feelings.

I've tried to follow the Marlies the last couple of seasons. Followed their social media, set up feeds to get their results on my phone etc. I've watched a few games on AHL Live (despite it being silly expensive). But I find it hard to really care so the games kind of almost bore me.

Is there a Marlies core of fans who are Marlies first, or is it mostly people looking to watch Leaf prospects etc. Is there anyone here who would be a proper Marlies "fan/supporter"?
