Making their first post-deadline roster move, the Toronto Maple Leafs have recalled Joe Colborne from the Toronto Marlies today, bringing the team back up to a full roster. Opinions are back and forth on this move. I’m in a weird spot where I see why it’s being done, but don’t necessarily agree with it being the best choice. Here are some things to consider..

The Toronto Marlies have been an impressive team of late. After falling out of the North Division lead, their ten game homestead gave the team time to re-evaluate and build chemistry, and did so in spectacular fashion, winning seven of them. The momentum continued as the team left town, leading to eight straight games without a regulation loss. However, all good things must come to an end at some point, and that was the case tonight, as the blue and white fell 4-1 to the Rockford IceHogs.

WIth no recaps coming from me for any of Friday, Saturday, or Sunday's games, I figure that it would be a good idea to get everybody back in the loop on what happened with the Toronto Marlies this weekend.

Being on the road has no doubt been the weaker situation for the Toronto Marlies this sesaon, particularly after the lockout. Entering today's game, the blue and white had only won one of seven games away from Ricoh Coliseum after the beginning of Leafs training camp. That said, it's been a while since they've been away from home, and many were hoping that the 7-3-0 run of the past several weeks was more than just arena advantage, but rather the forming of team chemistry. The Lake Erie Monsters were the first test of this, and with a 5-3 win today, the Marlies are hoping this is a sign of things to come.

If you're going to face a division rival a million times a year, you may as well be good at it. Thankfully for the Toronto Marlies, this is the case for the Rochester Americans. Headed into todays game, they've only lost one of thirteen games against the Buffalo Sabres affiliate in the last calendar year. With them just two points behind the blue and white for the North Division lead, a win was crucial, and the Marlies had what could be their most convincing victory of the season, beating the Amerks 6-1.
