Leafs are not trading for a backup goalie

Backup Goaltenders - The Toronto Maple Leafs are not impressed with what’s available in the trade market

  • According to Elliotte Friedman, the Leafs will not attempt to trade for a backup goalie.
  • He claims they’re not enamored with what’s available in the trade market.
  • Pittsburgh’s Tristan Jarry and the New York Rangers’ Alexandar Georgiev have come up in media speculation, but either guy seem to be available.
  • Looks like the Leafs are stuck with what they’ve got for the time being.
  • Jarry’s played very well backing up starter Matt Murray.
  • Given the latter’s injury history, they probably won’t part with Jarry or Casey DeSmith this season.
  • Despite all the fuss over Georgiev becoming waiver-eligible soon, Rangers GM Jeff Gorton doesn’t sound like he’s keen to part with him.
