According to a former Maple Leaf, general manager Brad Treliving could make a major mistake with a goaltending decision in the coming weeks.

It's no secret that with Ilya Samsonov leaving Toronto this summer, Brad Treliving and the Toronto Maple Leafs will look for a new goaltender.
While Joseph Woll is close to reaching the level of a number one goalie, he's not there just yet, and Treliving has been shopping around to get some reinforcements between the pipes.
A recent report indicated that there is mutual interest between the Maple Leafs and free agent Laurent Brossoit:
"James Mirtle says that Brossoit's top priority is going to a good team where he can start frequently and the #LeafsForever fit that bill. Mirtle's guess is that Brossoit will get a short-term deal for around $3M"

Brossoit spent last season in Winnipeg, being Connor Hellebuyck's number two. He took part in only 23 games this season, had a 15-5-3 record, 0.927 SV%, and 2.00 GAA.
He had a great year. But according to ex-Maple Leafs player Frank Corrado, Treliving would make a mistake by signing him.
Here's what he said on TSN's First Up earlier this week:
"He's a good goalie. He's played with [Connor] Hellebuyck for a lot in his career and they were a great tandem last year, and I think that's what you're getting if you get him. You're getting a tandem goalie.

He didn't even play enough games to meet the Jennings requirements this year, so Hellebuyck won that award on his own, so you'd have to be willing to give him more of a workload than he had this year playing behind Connor Hellebuyck... as far as backup goalies go, you'd be giving him a 1B situation.

I think he's a good goalie, but I don't think it changes the way the Leafs look in net, meaning they still don't have that number one guy that you wanna have, you wanna lean on... it doesn't scream 'solidified.'"
Treliving's main goal must be to make the team better and Corrado doesn't believe it will be better with Brossoit between the pipes.
Do you think Brad Treliving would make a mistake with that decision?
