07:33 AM ET 11.21 | For now, there's room for everyone, which won't always be the case. When the Leafs do get their lineup close to 100% -- everyone but centre Dave Bolland could be back by next week -- the roster will require some fine-tuning. Toronto used three centres while Tyler Bozak was hurt and Nazem Kadri recovered from injuries. ... They also will have an extra defenceman when Mark Fraser comes back from a knee injury. There might also be rumbles on the trade front as the NHL holiday roster freeze is now less than a month away (Dec. 19-27). Sportsnet reported Tuesday that Carolina Hurricanes hockey operations VP Ron Francis was scouting the Marlies game on Tuesday at Ricoh against his Charlotte farm club to look at defenceman John-Michael Liles.

I guess the Sun "forgot" Kadri had a three game vacation for goonage.

Its called spin. I don't think Toronto fans pay attention to details like that.

Liles seems to be a character guy. You don't hear him bitching about being sent down or demanding a trade through the press. Hope it works out for the guy.

True. First time I read the story, I did not even notice the explanation given for Kadri's absence.

The article also neglects the fact that Francis was also at Saturday's Marlies game, as well as Saturday night's Leafs game, as were 4 other GMs or VPs.

articles never leave out anything
