Toronto Maple Leafs 2013-2014 opening roster at 22 players
With Brodie and Smith placed on waivers, and Devane and Leivo headed to the American Hockey League, it looks like Carter Ashton will stick and be in the Leafs opening night lineup. John-Michael Liles was expected to be placed on waivers and is also likely headed to the Toronto Marlies. The Buds may be looking to pick up a big tough forward (left wing preferably) from the waiver wire, at least until Frazer McLaren returns, though that would require Ashton being parked in the AHL.
Jamie Devane, Trevor Smith, Troy Brodie also headed to Marlies
Here is the current 22-man Toronto Maple Leafs lineup:
JVR - Bozak - Kessel
Lupul - Kadri - Raymond
Orr - McClement - Kulemin
Bolland - Ashton
Phaneuf - Gunnarsson
Fraser - Franson
Gardiner - Ranger
If an affordable forward gets picked up in a trade or off waivers or is re-called from the Marlies, look for Reilly to join Clarkson and McLaren in the press box Tuesday evening in Montreal. If there's an injury to Leafs back end, Macwilliam may be the D-man who gets first call-up from AHL.
