As you probably know, the Toronto Maple Leafs placed former Capital Brooks Laich on waivers at the very beginning of this season. The Leafs then ultimately made the decision to demote him to their AHL affiliate, the Toronto Marlies.
Laich’s career with the Marlies started strange. The team played their first two regular season games and Laich did not play in either. I surmised that he was probably not happy with his demotion and now a few months later we have more evidence to back that up.
