Pre-Season Game #9: Leafs vs. Detroit


Here are tonight’s lines courtesy of Pension Plan Puppets:

Versteeg – Bozak – Kessel
MacArthur – Grabovski – Kulemin
Sjostrom – Brent – Armstrong
Orr – Zigomanis – Brown

Beauchemin – Phaneuf
Kaberle – Komisarek
Gunnarsson – Schenn


Pre-game notes:

This looks roughly like the opening night roster, with Zigomanis likely to be replaced by Hanson before then … Detroit meanwhile is dressing the minimum allowed NHL players, so Toronto should have a much easier time tonight … Tim Brent seems to have officially made the team with his defensive acuteness and face-off proficiency … John Mitchell seems slated for the 13th forward spot, while Kadri will be Marlie bound … Jeff Finger’s future seems to be with the Leafs for the next little while; at least until Lebda returns to action
