Look, it's the pre-season. These games are a chance for the guys who know their job is safe to their legs under them, they guys on the bubble to prove the belong, and everyone else to show management what they can offer the team in the future. The only thing we should take away from tonight is that: Oh man are the Marlies going to be fun to watch this year.
