Just for a game or two. I'd just like to see what the two kids can do since they're likely to be our 3rd pairing in 2020-21. Holl-Marincin can semi cope in a shut-down role (or at least probably better than Holl-Ceci) and that leaves a top pairing of [pick two] Barrie/Dermott/Ceci. Of those three, Ceci would ride the pine if I had to choose who to task with #1 pairing minutes for the next 4-5 games. He can swap in for Marincin or something if that second pairing is getting caved, not that he'd necessarily be that much of an upgrade.

When he was called up this morning there was a small part of me that thought maybe he was finally getting a chance, but then reality hit. They aren't scratching Ceci when they're already down two regular veterans to injury. Just not happening.

Still, seems odd to do if they just want him there for atmosphere intake.  Maybe they'll put him out there against what should be a weak opponent, especially one w/o a whole lot of firepower.  Gotta debut sometime.

But I wouldn't pair him with Sandin.

Barrie-Dermott
Holl-Sandin
Marincin-Liljegren (or Ceci instead of 52)

And to affirm what Nik said, next year I highly doubt there'll be a 37/38 pairing.

I really don't think it's that odd. The more time he spends in the big leagues now, even if he isn't playing, the more comfortable he'll be next season when he is playing. It's also just a nice reward (both mentally and financially) for a player who's been a big part of the Marlies for the past 3 years.

And of course who knows, if a defenceman pulls something in the morning skate or warm-ups he can step in.

Have to agree with this at this point in time but it will ultimately depend on what the rest of the season brings and how Liljegren and Sandin progress.

Yeah, in retrospect you're right. If he gets a half season under his belt Sandin might be able to handle 2nd pairing duties if he has a veteran of some sort to his right. Goodness knows who that will be.
It's not denial...I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.

Justin Holl is 8 years older than him! ;)

I did say "veteran" not "old fart" :D

Great.  Martina RUNS OFF to pursue HER CAREER and we get left with a g/d ORGAN.

Unless J.S. Bach is up there pumping the bellows I don't want to hear it.

Nopes :)

The Leafs might be down another key member for the next little while.
Martina Ortiz-Luis landed a gig in season 4 of Wynonna Earp (which is a very fun show, if you ever got into Buffy/Angel).

What's their shooting schedule like? Looks like Martina will be free from mid April right through to early October...

They’re shooting now

They're flying her back for the anthem tonight, right? Right?!

But seriously, good for her. And yeah Wynonna Earp is a great show. Glad the 4th season is finally happening.
