"I'm only doing this because you're spirited."
The Toronto Marlies have announced their 2011 Clear Day List. This is essentially their playoff roster. The following players will be part of the squad that will compete for the Calder Cup if they make the playoffs:
Jussi Rynnas, Ben Scrivens, Keith Aulie, Mike Brennan, Fabian Brunnstrom, Joe Colborne, Jeff Cowan, Josh Engel, Alex Foster, Simon Gysbers, Ryan Hamilton, Christian Hanson, Justin Hodgman, Korbinian Holzer, Nazem Kadri, Matt Lashoff, Juraj Mikus, Marcel Mueller, Danny Richmond, Greg Scott, Aaron Voros, and Mike Zigomanis.
There a few familia names missing from that list including Joey Crabb, Darryl Boyce, and James Reimer. Crabb and Boyce are no longer exempt from waivers so I would imagine that that is one of the main considerations in keeping them from the playoffs. Leafs' GM Burke had previously said that he wanted Aulie and Reimer back with the Marlies so I'm surprised that Reimer isn't on the list. My initial thought is that he's not on the list because the Leafs have already made a decision on him as a pending RFA (staying, of course) and want a better look at Scrivens and Rynnas. He should be waiver eligible by my reading of the rules but I'm following up on that.
