Pogge Pulled in Marlies Defeat

MarliesThe kids and I went to the Marlies game this afternoon. It was Vesa Toskala bobble head day and Justin Pogge got the start between the pipes. Pogge looked pretty bad and got pulled for Adam Munro early in the second period after allowing a super weak goal. The real Toskala has nothing to fear in Pogge, trust me on that one.

It ended up being super close, in fact, from my front row seat I'm pretty sure we tied it up with Munro on the bench in the final minute of play. The ref disagreed and we fell 5-4.

Anton Stralman and Andre Deveaux each scored a couple of goals and Jiri Tlusty contributed a pair of assists. Tlusty continues to be too good to be a member of the Marlies.

Don't be surprised if Pogge is traded at or before trade deadline. Burkie has no confidence in him.

Pogge too bad you had the world on your shoulders & the weight was TOO MUCH.

I saw the Marlies cream the Hamilton Bulldogs Sat night at Copps 7 to 1 with Munro in net. Munro stood on his head. Screw Pogge. I say the Leafs should take a look at Munro instead.

Dale, I'll be very surprised if Pogge is moved. I can't imagine he's worth much at this point.

If anyone on the Marlies goes, it's Tlusty. He's got a big upside and skills... I'm not sure why he's not a part of our future plans.

BBM, Marlies games are reasonably priced and lots of fun. Tickets start as low as $10.
