    Oh and sink it shall… Replace one and lose two – both Steen and Boyce left last night's game with shoulder injuries.  Steen should be fine shortly after the all-star break but Boyce will be out for a while.

    Predictions anyone?  Who's next to be called up?  I hope either John Mitchell or Robbie Earl get their first taste next.  Leave Bates, Ling, Newbury, & Ondrus with the Marlies.  Give the kids a chance to experience the NHL and give them a glimpse of their possible future.
