Possibly as good as Henrik Lundqvist?

Gilroy - Rumoured to have narrowed his list down to two teams, Toronto is one. He may be the odds on favourite to win the Hobey Baker Trophy, clearly one of the best NCAA players. Though he's much older than most NCAA players, his skills are undeniable. Brian Burke has been pursuing him all season, even had dinner with Gilroy's family.

They should push hard for Gustavsson. The last time the leafs had this kind of lack of goaltending depth was before I even knew toronto had a hockey team in the 80's when I was 5. It's kinda scary; they have no real goaltending prospect or proven starter for that matter(cujo doesnt count, hes finished).

At least we already have a top prospect D-man who only needs a another good D-man to be paired with. However, getting Gilroy, at a reasonable price, would be a bonus.
