Round 2 – Semifinals- Andrew Nielsen Vs Martin Marincin | Leafs Hub
The Skinny: Is Andrew Nielsen a better prospect with more of a future with the Leafs than Martin Marincin? I'd have to think so, but that's merely my opinion. The real question here today is if you are the GM of the Toronto Maple Leafs who do you have higher on this seasons depth chart. I don't want to sway voting but do you want Nielsen playing in the NHL in a limited reserve role or is big minutes in the AHL the best thing for him. Marincin seems more suited to fill the role of extra man or the 6th D. However, many would like to move on from Marincin completely and it's reasoning is understandable, as you'll read below. So the question to ask now has evolved into who is best suited for a roster spot with the big club in 2017/18, Nielsen or Marincin. The winner moves on the the Finals and a chance to be slotted in by LeafsHub.com and its readers as the 6th defense.
