Lets hope Clarkson feels at home tonight and brings a big game:

There are literally about eight David Clarkson signs along the glass an hour before puck drop at Prudential Center.

Don't know if any of you follow Paul Stewart, you should check out his timeline today, he's on a pretty good rant about the NHL and burning some bridges. I called him on this one today and he responded to me: Quite interesting:

Players like Avery, Tucker Cooke eventually become distractions to own team. I can't stand them. Give me an honest tough guy 10 times of 10.

If Kulemin leaves the Leafs, Holland would be a good replacement. Probably could play wing and score more than Kulemin

Carter Verhaeghe with the game winner with 41 seconds to go in the 3rd period as Niagara ties their series at 1s. Had an assist too.

Great pass by Holland. 2 points tonight I think.

5 minute PP here for the Marlies as Ashton gets hit from behind.  3:30 to go.

He was pretty tough as a player

@MikeGartner11  Its great they are scoring but I never know how to relate points in the Q to other leagues. 4 point nights are just another tuesday for some players.

@wiski No spot in the top 6 for him, he's not taking Kadri's place, Bolland forced him out, and has no defensive play so can't take Mclement's place. Process of elimination.

@wiski  Nope. I wonder why they never tried him on Kadri's other wing.

Safe to say he shouldn't be in the AHL.

3-2 Marlies. Leivo with the PP goal

I want anyone who can be an impact NHLer.

@Yan28  If I had to pick, it's Broll all the way. He's the better hockey player. But ideally, neither would make it because Komarov and Bodie take up the bottom 6 wing spots.

@loomx @ingy56  Mostly his supervisors and Colin Campbell. Not much nice to say about Bryan Lewis. Attacks the NHL's suspension/rules policy.

@Yan28 @wiski  If we're playing the process of elimination game, then Orr should be with the Marlies and Clarkson should be with the Orlando Solar Bears.

Plus there's the waiver thing.

@loomx @Yan28I liek Bodie, but he's a journeyman, those guys are good prospects and young, there's no way he'll stop em. He's here today, gone tomorrow.

@wiski @LeafsManiac @Yan28  Gotta think that after next year it becomes a lot easier to move that contract.Hopefully by then we won't need to move him.

@Xxxxxnew  I assure that waivers would not be an issue with Colton Orr.

@TheCanucksnaphook @Yan28 @loomx  I always liked Carrick. Watched him his whole career in Brampton. The day he was drafted I said that he'd be the 4th line C for the Leafs one day. It's cliche but those are the kinds of guys you win with.

@Yan28 @loomx  That's possible. But if he gets pushed aside, it should be for Ashton.
