The Leafs Have Their Goaltender

from Damein Cox of the Toronto Star,

Perhaps somewhere along the way somebody should have sent a scout to Denmark.

Maybe that would have shortened the process of looking for a replacement for Ed Belfour in the net of your Toronto Maple Leafs.

As it was, it’s taken 11 seasons (!!!), five general managers, six coaches and 17 goaltending candidates to find someone capable of doing something approximating the job Belfour did for three seasons in the waning years of his stellar career.

But, it appears, the Leafs finally have located such a netminder.

Frederik Andersen has managed to erase those ugly first impressions he made in October, ones that made many wonder if he was just a rerun of Vesa Toskala or Jonathan Bernier, and in so doing likely set himself up for a lengthy run in the Toronto net as the club’s No. 1 goalie.
