A lot of people felt the Leafs could do something to bolster their organizational goalie depth, but it still seemed to catch them off guard when the team announced the signing of Finnish goalie turned college starter Kasimir Kaskisuo. For a lot of people, they had simply never heard of him before.

This weekend, we ignored our roots as a hockey site and decided to focus on things that actually matter, like what we've all been doing this summer. Not last summer, this summer. Not an NHL summer, but a TLN summer. Anyway...
