The Toronto Marlies have clinched a playoff spot. Exciting, right?! What's more exciting is the fact that they did that without even having to win tonight's hockey game, as their position was secured by a Hamilton Bulldogs loss. With that said, a victory against the Milwaukee Admirals could help them climb even further, and after sixty three and a half minutes, they got just that.

Rating the Leafs Role Players

Looking back on the season it's safe to say it’s been a mixed year for Leafs role players. There was some good, it may not leap out at you looking at the roster right now, but when you figure that Daniel Winnik and Mike Santorelli brought in a return of Brendan Leipsic, a 2nd and 4th, the Leafs clearly knew what they were doing late last summer. This make a strong case for sitting out the early days of free agency.

It's been just five days since the Leafs relieved Dave Nonis of his general manager duties but as you might expect there has been little shortage of speculation as to who the Leafs' next GM might be.  One of the more heavily rumored names has been that of Sean Burke, who since 2008 has served in a myriad of roles for the Arizona Coyotes.  Today, those roles include serving as the Coyotes goaltending coach as well as assistant to the general manager Don Maloney.  However, Burke has been given permission by the Coyotes to look for employment elsewhere and he's not expected to be back in the desert come the start of next season.  TSN's Darren Dreger put some gasoline on the Leafs' GM search fire today, tweeting "[Brendan] Shanahan requested and was given permission from the Arizona Coyotes to speak with Sean Burke earlier this week.   Ongoing discussions."
