This team has a very long way to go. They lost Sparks, Pickard, Holl, Marincin, Smith, Johnsson, Goat & Kapanen. Plus Brooks, Marchment, Mueller, Sandin and Grundstrom injured. Nevertheless, this team has a number of reclamation projects like Gagner, Subban, Cumiskey, Jooris, Cracknell and Sproul. In the Spring, the team could also see a bunch of new prospect additions like Durzi, Hollowell, Scott, Woll?, Joshua, Kara and others from Europe, etc. I think Marlies fans should just sit back and watch this season to see all the moves and development projects underway from a more academic interest than a cheering interest.
