I would also be remiss to mention that Sam Gagner, childhood friend and rival of John Tavares, notable Maple Leaf, is tearing it up for the Marlies.

GM Gilman pretty excited to have a veteran (or two) like Gagner:

The Marlies have signed a pair of former NHL defencemen to PTOs: Kyle Cumiskey and Ryan Sproul. They were with the team in training camp and might see some game action now.

Darling was on the ice in Carolina this week. When he returns they will likely waive McElhinney? I could see WAS and TOR putting in waiver claims.

This is a misconception that I propagated earlier in the season. We don't have first dibs, but if we do claim them successfully, we would be able to put them on the Marlies immediately.

The team who has the least percentage of obtainable points to date gets waiver priority.

Two more misconceptions here:

1.  In the first month (ie October) of the season, the team that finished lowest in the standings the previous year has priority.

2.  " if we do claim them successfully, we would be able to put them on the Marlies immediately"... we can be successful in claiming either of them, but we also have to be the only one to put in a waiver claim.  So, for instance, we would be successful if teams like Vegas, Tampa, Boston, Nashville, or Winnipeg (they all finished higher than us last year... see misconception #1)  also put in a claim but then we couldn't immediately send them to the Marlies

Just to make every possible thread about Nylander, Trevor Moore is yet another example of the development team making a strong case for resolving the cap crunch with a steady stream of Marlie graduates who can step in and play so that players like Nylander can be appropriately paid.

Most people might be thinking, who the f is Trevor Moore anyway. If you caught the Calder Cup last season, he was right there alongside Andreas Johnsson in effectiveness, but playing from the bottom of the lineup. He's a waterbug through the neutral zone, a zone exit and entry machine, plays smartly above the puck so coaches love him, and takes pucks with aplomb; the only knock is that he is smallish and was undrafted.

Dubas picked him up for the Marlies in 2016 after identifying him for a rookie dev camp tryout. He made the #15 slot in this offseason's PPP T25U25.

I agree Herman. The Blackhawks were able to maintain a winning team for years by constantly bringing in players that had developed in the AHL or Europe. The Leafs may have to move Kadri in order to facilitate keeping Matthews, Marner and Nylander, but the blow will be lessened if players such as Moore and Grundstrom and Engvall can successfully make the jump to the NHL.
