Maple Leafs Sizzling Range: Elliotte Friedman on WGR 550 The Instigators mentioned that Toronto Maple Leafs have inquired in regards to the standing of Buffalo Sabres goaltender Linus Ullmark in case Frederik Andersen isn’t capable of return.
“The scenario I heard his title in, and I don’t essentially assume it was something like, “Let’s speak about a deal,” however I do assume that Toronto, in doing their due diligence as they attempt to type out of their web, has referred to as Buffalo to ask what the Sabres are pondering there . I don’t know the place that’s going to go.
Frederik Andersen has an appointment at present, they usually’re hoping to get higher readability on what his scenario is. If he’s out for the yr or something like that, Toronto goes to get severe about what they should do in objective. I do assume they’ve touched base with Buffalo a minimum of asking what their plans are with Ullmark.
“If we have to do that, would there be an choice there?”
Friedman doesn’t assume Ullmark would value a first-round choose however he does maintain some worth.
Friedman on the Leafs commerce deadline priorities.
“I feel they want to get one other ahead to play with Tavares and Nylander. They’re impulsively questioning in the event that they should get a goalie due to the accidents. Each Campbell and Andersen have been damage.”
Maple Leafs Sizzling Range: Chris Johnston on Sportsnet 590 thinks that the Maple Leafs could have a distinct search for entrance after the commerce deadline.
“I’m assured that the Leafs are going to look totally different up entrance on April thirteenth — perhaps earlier than, however definitely the day after the deadline. I nonetheless assume they’re keen to commerce that asset in the event that they should. The choose they drafted Rodion Amirov with at fifteenth total — they have been keen to maneuver that choose on the time earlier than even making a draft choice. They only didn’t have a commerce that made sense.”
Johnston provides that Amirov will not be the play they commerce, however they’re keen to maneuver a prime prospect.
