Could NYI or DAL be a good fit for J.Finger?

The Leafs did have lousy goaltending, yes. But, their defense, including Jeff Finger, also stunk.
I'd actually say that MacDonald would have been the best goaltender on the Leafs last season... maybe next to Gerber...maybe.
You clearly didn't watch many leaf games last year though...
when Toskala was in net, we were almost garunteed 1 bad goal a game... at least.
When CuJo was in net, we were almost garunteed one bad goal a game... at least
When Pogge was in net, we were almost garunteed two bad goals a game... at least.
We give up at LEAST 50 bad goals last year.... 50 goals that the Average goaltender could have stopped.
If it wasn't for Gerber, we would have got a top five pick....
Our defense was actually pretty good. Not elite... but probably average. Finger played very well last season... he played physical and was good at blocking shots.... The problem now is, we upgraded Finger with Beauchemin. Both are similar type players.... we don't need both, thus Finger is on the trade block IMO.
