Waived by Florida too.  So waived by Boston, Toronto, and Florida in 1 season.

And claimed every single time he was on waivers. Every. Single. Time.

It would also be a poor discussion-inducer, and an improv faux-pas.

This is why you and I need to start an improv group where we take turns explaining to the audience that the other one is just making up nonsense.

We need a troupe name. Fans of Futility? Draft, Develop, Disappoint?

SEASON SAVER

Veteran winger Rich Clune mentioned a couple of days ago how a series of mid-season meetings and player personnel moves changed direction when the Marlies were last in the North.

“I give (GM) Kyle Dubas a lot of credit,” Clune said. “He has a good feel of when to pick his spots and he hit the team with some truth in January, from the coaches down to the players. We turned this ship around and almost won the division.”

Holl called the January soul-searching “a come-to-Jesus moment” for the team. The Marlies then made the playoffs a sixth straight year and for the fifth time, are advancing beyond the first round.

“Development and winning go hand and hand here,” Clune said.

“It’s an environment where you don’t learn anything from losing. Sure you take lessons from some losses, but the ultimate goal is to win and encourage that culture. It’s an expectation when you sign now with the Leafs and the Marlies.”

Kyle Dubas, the William Nylander of the management team, snipes one home.

I dug through the Marlies schedule/results to see when this turnaround happened.

It looks like they had basically the lowest point of the season Jan 14, after losing Kapanen the night before thanks to Dotchin crunching him awkwardly into the boards behind the net, with the team mired in the midst of a 5-13-1 stretch since the start of December.

They really turned it around after that week off, going 26-10-2 since January 20 to close out the season.

What else happened to the team Jan 20?

Jonsson has the Marlies up 1-0 early in game 1 of the second round.

Kaskisuo has been sensational, he's made two glove saves that have been absolute robbery.

Andreas Jonsson with his second goal in as many games, Marlies trail 3-1.

15 powerplays between the two teams include the full 5 minute penalty for that hit.  Playoff hockey or just bad AHL refereeing?

Just read it is Freddie's left leg. Here ares some comments about Grudstroms first game: " Grundstrom made his North American professional debut, while veteran Rich Clune got his first playoff action. Grundstrom had a goal and an assist, doing all the hard work on O’Reilly’s goal.

“It was okay, I was a little rusty, I haven’t played in a couple of weeks,” said Grundstrom. “But I felt better as the game went on. I can play better.”

Gauthier requires surgery for the leg injury sustained and will be out 6 months (i.e. missing Training Camp).

Dotchin, Breaker of Leafs, has been suspended 3 games for his late hit.

I like how the Marlies/Leafs responded to this situation.
