Playoff Eve Predictions for the Leafs vs. Habs

Leafs sign a new (future Vezina winning?) goaltender

Why not put pressure on the guy before the ink is even dry on his contract? We’ll spend the rest of this post walking back the title to something reasonable, but the we’ll start off by noting the organization’s shift towards bringing in as many goaltending prospects as possible in past few years.
