Who will survive the Maple Leafs training camp should become clear this morning.

Coach Ron Wilson is set to divide the 50-odd players into more distinct Leafs-Marlies groups as the farmhands prepare for exhibition games in St. John's, Nfld., next week.

It's thought juniors such as Woodbridge's Chris DiDomenico will get into one exhibition game either tonight against Pittsburgh or tomorrow against the Buffalo Sabres before returning to their clubs.

But general manager Cliff Fletcher says Kelowna Rockets defenceman Luke Schenn, a first-round pick, will be kept with the Leafs for at least the duration of the main camp.

Leaf hopefuls Robbie Earl and Jeremy Williams also are likely to play in the next couple of days.
