Messy Situation in Toronto

The Toronto Maple Leafs are facing a challenging puzzle when it comes to their goalies. Until the futures of Matt Murray and Ilya Samsonov are clear, the rumors and speculations won't stop.

The best scenario would be to trade Murray and re-sign Samsonov, making him the top goalie for the upcoming season and leaving the second position for Joseph Woll.

A particular story is emerging from all the speculation, and it's not only believable but also logical!


A Two-Time Cup Winner With the Leafs?



In an exciting revelation from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Brian Elliott's name has been linked to the Maple Leafs.

"Jaro Halak, Brian Elliott, Martin Jones, and Thomas Greiss are out there seeking jobs as backups, with Elliott perhaps on his way to Toronto."

Elliott, who has won the Stanley Cup twice with the Lightning, is being considered as a backup option for Toronto. Although Andrei Vasilevskiy was the primary goalie on his team, Elliott's valuable experience cannot be ignored.

Even at 38 years old, Elliott's performance statistics are still impressive.


He faced some challenges in the last season, playing 22 games and achieving a record of 12-8-2, with a save percentage of .891 and a goals against average of 3.40.

However, let's look back at the 2021-2022 season when Elliott was outstanding. In 19 games, he had an impressive record of 11-4-3 losses, with a save percentage of .912 and a goals against average of 2.43.

He still brings a significant impact to the game and can be a guiding presence for young goalies like Woll.

Do you think Treliving should go after Elliott?
