Don't look now, but the Toronto Marlies are making the twenty five games of the season into interesting ones. A few moves in the organization have given the team much more depth than they had to start the season, the goalies are stopping just enough pucks to keep the team afloat, and a little bit of luck combine to suddenly put this team back in the playoff picture.

You know, when Dave Nonis said he wasn't "worried about year six or seven right now", in reference it looked like a quote that was going to haunt him for the rest of his front office career. Granted, he was totally wrong about getting a "very good player" in year one of the deal, but today, he confirmed that he had nothing to worry about, with management perhaps performing Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainments financial magnum opus.
