Leafs Looking for a Veteran Goaltender: 7 Goalies That Could Be on Their Radar

February 19th, 2013 by Brad LeClair Leave a reply »
According to TSN.ca, GM Dave Nonis of the Toronto Maple Leafs is still looking for a veteran goalie to either back-up James Reimer, or, if they're good enough, start for the team.

News of this comes as a minor surprise to some because of how solid the Leafs' goaltending this season has been, Both James Reimer and Ben Scrivens have combined for one of the best goaltending combos in the NHL.

Allowing just 2.25 goals against per game, the Leafs' goaltending is tied with New Jersey for seventh best. You can put some of the emphasis on an improved defensive system under head coach Randy Carlyle, however, most of kudos should go out to the Leafs' goaltenders. They have improved quite a bit since last season, and Reimer in particular has returned to his pre-concussion form that saw him take the city of Toronto by storm in 2010-11.

So if the Leafs are looking for a goaltender, who could be on their radar? If they're looking for a goaltender even though they've got good goaltending already, I'm led to believe that if they make a deal, it will ll be a starter, not some veteran back-up.
