I'm sure I'm not the first person to bring it up but I'm having a difficult time with the ECHL team's name and separating it from its slang usage.

Couldn't have gone with, like, Dogs or something?

Had to go to google to figure out what you meant, don't think I've ever heard it used that way before.

I'm not sure which of the google results you landed on but I'm referring to the use of it to mean a large, impending #2.

Ah, there appears to be... two sides to that slang then.

Growlers: Imposing and inevitable, and come game time you'll be in a rush to fill your seat. Seems fitting.

Indeed. In the UK it somehow became slang for a ladys genital region. So yes, it tends to raise a smirk when the name is mentioned

I was going to try to catch some Marlies games this year, but now I probably won't until Hollowell, Conrad, Duszak, and Brazeau are back up.
Disappointing to say the least, however perhaps they will play max minutes on the Growlers. Perhaps this was why they started the ECHL in the first place, to actually develop prospects with real potential, not just long shots.

Have to wonder if putting a guy like Duszak or Conrad in the ECHL has negative impacts on signing future college free-agents.  I'm sure there are many benefits to signing with the Maple Leafs org. (player development seems to be of the highest standard) but having the chance of being shipped to NFLD probably isn't a big seller.

And I'm not knocking the ROCK.  I loved it there when I visited but the perception of going there is probably not that strong, especially among american college free-agents.

I think it depends on how players project up the roster.   These guys want to play in the NHL.   If guys spend time in the ECHL where the Leafs are spending way more than the conventional team it is less of an issue.  But ultimately opportunity will be what players look for.   These guys arent NHL ready so if the Leafs help them get there, whether for this organization or another they will continue to sign with us.
