Let me be clear, I don't have a problem with Eddie being the goalie. In fact, I find the buying out Belfour and signing Cujo rumours to be laughable. I think Eddie could have come cheaper and at a term more in the Leafs favour. He was 39 and you give him a 3 year deal? Not smart. I don't care that the 3rd year was an option. Look at Hasek in Ottawa, he is only counting $2.3 against the cap. The Leafs could use that $2 million had they been more frugal. Hasek's deal was incentive laden, but that is what you should do with older players. A mistake by JFJ.
