Interesting that Mason Raymond is getting a look-see on the top line. If he makes the team, it will be as a third-line winger. But it's always good to have a versatile player, who can go up and down the lineup.
Here's what GM Dave Nonis said moments ago about whether the team is close to a resolution on Mason Raymond.
Nonis: "It's not really me. I am comfortable with Mason. I know what he's like as a person and as a player. it's how Randy sees him. How he fits into the lineup. Where does he fit in the lineup. It's not one where you get to know the kid and see. We're pretty comfortable with the type of player he is and him as person. It's whther or not he's a fit for us. That will be up to the coaching staff. "

Interesting to see Joe Colborne centring Carter Ashton and Troy Bodie. Three guys going after one job. Better for each. Playing with veterans, guys on the bubble tend to pass a lot. Playing with each other, they'll try to shine. But they can't be greedy.

Trevor Smith centres David Broll and Josh Leivo. I would say that's a line that won't be around very much longer.
