Building the wall; Leafs acquire Khabibulin from Edmonton

The Toronto Maple Leafs shored up their goaltending situation today, acquiring veteran netminder Nikolai Khabibulin, along with prospect Toni Rajala, from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for prospect goaltender Ben Scrivens.

"Nik will give James Reimer the opportunity to learn a great deal about handling pressure, and tending goal in this year as a full time gig." Leafs GM TribalPhoenix stated in a conference call at the Air Canada Centre this evening.

"Nik will give James the ability to spell his responsibility as a starter, and learn the ins and outs of a market like this. He is a world class goaltender, and will be a huge asset to this club going forward. Toni Rajala is also a highly skilled prospect we believe has top 6 potential in this league, and could easily end up as a solid player in this league.
