If the Leafs falter, which is expected, it will make for an easy excuse for JFJ to fire Quinn and bring in his own man.
Just some food for thought!

He was only signed to a 25 game tryout contract with the Marlies so unless he completely dominates in those games, he will not see any action with the big club. Plus the Leafs already have too many forwards as is, and if there was a spot, I would much rather use it on Thomas than Battaglia.

Beyond that there isn’t much Khananov has the possiblity to put up good numbers. However I doubt they will cover up his defensive lapses. I never thought I would say this but I feel so sorry for Sundin. They have 30 goal men on the wings and he gets stuck with those two on the top line. The best thing about the Tucker-Allison-Czerkawski line is that Tucker can partly cover for Czerkawski’s cherry picking in the defensive zone. Steen-Stajan-O’Niell if they stay together will be Toronto’s best line at both ends of the ice. Steen and Stajan are solid two way players and O’Neill isn’t known for defensive lapses. Either way Toronto will be in a dog fight along with other teams like Montreal, New Jersey, Islanders, Florida, Buffalo, and Atlanta. The only teams that are really not a serious threat at the playoffs are Caps, Canes and Rangers.
