Marincin gets a lot of criticism for being a league minimum 7th defenseman.

So is Lilly who we'd all rather see.
Sure he would make some mistakes but Marincin is flat out garbage. I'd rather see Lilly get some playing time and get some valuable experience and he would be set to go for next year.

No one is expecting bobby orr, but you simply can't have a guy in the lineup that can't reliably give and receive an pass with time and space.

It seems kapanen is the type of guy that plays better when he's pissed off a bit.

My god, is marincin an absolute disaster with the puck. There were three times where he was given the puck, with plenty of time, and managed to hand it right over to the canes for significant zone time. The one 2 minutes into the first where Tavares gave it to him on the reverse when the puck came back was just comical.
Yes on both accounts.

Is there truly no one on the marlies that can do a better job? Gravel?

Marincin is quite good without the puck and as Nik says, he's league min. salary. Even compared to Lily he's more reliable on D (presumably hence why he's played the last couple games while Lily hasn't) and I guess the Leafs feel that's more important right now than slick passing.
It's not denial...I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.

Anyone else underwhelmed with Clifford? 4th line I understand but I was expecting a crash and bash type of demon.

Same. Let's see if he makes more of an impact in the playoffs.

I like Marincin well enough but I don't think he's a better option than Liljegren right now.

I'm amazed to see Barrie back on the bench. Thought for sure his shoulder was dislocated.
Can't be cheering for Connor Brown no more.

Same. I still think that should have been a major penalty, though.

Agree with you. Would rather see Liljegren. JT line horrible there. Sandin with a nice hit.

Marincin out with the 4th line is a big no for me.

I don't think the hypothetical guy you'd be happy with would be a league minimum guy. Playing good defense in the NHL, even just competent defense, is a skill people pay for.

Ya I agree with you he's good without the puck but watching from the press box.
