I haven't seen that much, though...but he hasn't impressed me.
I'd make a play for Schneider, Benier, Halak/Price (whichever is available), Harding....probably examining the options in that order, too.
Living in London, Ontario, Leafs games are pretty much on nothing but TSN, TSN2, Rogers Sportsnet and CBC. Unfortunately, I've had plenty of opportunities to watch Leafs games and Gustavsson really is a good goalie. He's superb technically and positionally, but I would say that his puck handling skills leave a lot to be desired. His lateral movement is probably the fastest from any goalie I've seen. Part of the reason he's not looking good right now is that he's been peppered with shots in Toronto and that it's starting to catch up with him. So, once he gets into the full swing of playing a season that's more than 40 games and when he isn't facing 30+ shots a night, he'll get even better.
