Beast Mode - as he has been all series long against OKC Barons - Frattin was again a monster in game six against the Oklahoma City Barons. Frattin scored his ninth and 10 goals of the AHL Calder Cup playoffs. Frattin's is tied for the team lead in points with Jerry D'Amigo and Philippe Dupuis - ten goals leads the Calder Cup Playoffs as well.
The Toronto Marlies now face off against the Norfolk Admirals, who like the Marlies have quite a few ex-college hockey players on their team. Some of the college flavor of the Norfolk Admirals includes: Cory Conacher (Canisus College), Evan Oberg (Minnesota-Duluth), Mike Kostka (UMass-Amherst), Jonathon Kalinski (Minnesota State University-Mankato), Trevor Smith (University of New Hampshire), Alex Killorn (Harvard), Richard Petiot (Colorado College), Jeff Dimmen (University of Maine).
If forward Matt Frattin is hurt it could be a big hit for the Toronto Marlies.

Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke has already acquired two of the prospects that he drafted while serving as the GM of the Anaheim Ducks in defenseman Jake Gardiner and centre Nicolas Deschamps, now it appears as if Burke will make every effort to sign another former Burke draft choice in defensive prospect Justin Schultz.

This past week, Bob Mackenzie indicated on TSN Radio that the Maple Leafs would not be interested in goaltender Roberto Luongo. This seems to be a sentiment echoed throughout the media and I happen to agree with it. Don’t get me wrong, I think Luongo is a great goalie and will be good for the next five years at least, I just don’t think the Maple Leafs are interested in someone...
from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, On the day before he signed with the Washington Capitals last summer, a representative of Tomas Vokoun called the Maple Leafs and inquired about whether there was interest in the free-agent goaltender.
The Leafs said they had none.
Now, in fact, they have a different view. Vokoun is among the goaltenders the Leafs have targeted as they head...

There’s a glimmer of hope west of the Air Canada Centre at the Ricoh Coliseum, home of the AHL Toronto Marlies.
The Marlies became the first Leafs-affiliated team to clinch the finals since the 1992 St. John’s club.
