[extreme Sheryl Crow voice] The first cut is the deepest…
My stupidity aside, the Leafs have been hacking away at their training camp roster over the past couple of days, and with the Marlies camp opening, it looks like they’ll have actual Marlies attending it.
So far we’ve focused on who’s gone and you can find that info here:
Leafs make additional cuts as tougher roster decisions loom
Leafs make roster cuts as players are assigned to Marlies
Right now we’re going to focus on who is still around and what chances they have of making the Leafs.
Will be cut
When it comes to forward group it looks like most of the tough decisions have already been made. Robertson didn’t show enough in training camp to make the Leafs, Ho-Sang is going to require a bit more time with the Marlies before he’s ready to join the Leafs, and Nikita Gusev was essentially a bust. That puts things down to 10 absolute locks and 3 likely candidates to make the Leafs.
