Unfortunately not so hot. The Leafs haven't really had all that solid goaltending since Eddie Belfour in his twilight years.


I thought Burke made a good decision to bring in Giguere as a veteran presence but his injuries caused that one to backfire. I also thought Jonas Gustavsson showed promise when brought in from Sweden but he has major consistency issues.

The Leafs' best goaltending in recent memory was Reimer's finish to the season before this past one.

This is actually one of things that has disappointed me thus far about Burke. For a guy who claims to build from the net out, goaltending has been lacking.
