Maple Leafs could trade for one of three goaltenders

Any of these names move the meter for you?



Whether surprisingly nor not surprisingly, Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas' major gamble of upheaving his goaltending situation this past offseason hasn't exactly worked according to plan. Both Jack Campbell and Petr Mrazek were jettisoned in favor of bringing aboard Matt Murray and Ilya Samsonov, both of whom are now on the shelf with injuries. 

The injury-prone Murray was felled almost immediately into his Leafs tenure, and was placed on LTRI with approximately one week remaining before he's exacted to get back into game action. Meanwhile, Samsonov was forced from Saturday's game against the Boston Bruins after suffering a knee injury while failing to stop Brad Marchand's penalty shot attempt. 

Right now, Toronto's starter in the crease is the unproven Erik Kallgren; they've also inked 23 year old Toronto Marlies goaltender Keith Petruzzelli to an entry level deal. Needless to say, Toronto can't move forward with Kallgren as their starter, especially with both Murray and Samsonov already demonstrating an inability to stay healthy. 

Could they explore the trade market for a more stable figure between the pipes? Take a look at these possibilities via The Leafs Nation

"Last year though, he had a .917 save percentage in 28 games and a 2.67 goals-against average. If he could bring his game back to a level not even that high, say a .908, that would be more than enough to make the Maple Leafs happy and give them a chance to win hockey games."

Joonas Korpisalo

"He still seems like a young, up-and-coming goaltender, but in reality, he’s 28 years old. He has a save percentage of .902 in 182 games played and might be a fringe starter at best. For the Maple Leafs, you can’t really expect to find much more than that a month into the season."

James Reimer

"He’s a fan favourite to so many in Toronto, and after playing behind some awful teams during his time here in Toronto, it would be nice to see him return to a roster that seems poised to be highly competitive all season."
