Mark Owuya is the future bonafide #1 goaltender for the Toronto Maple Leafs. The sooner Eakins realizes this and starts giving him the bulk of starts, the sooner this prediction will begin to look like reality.
From EP

"To describe Owuya as a goaltender is not very easy. A butterfly goalie with a technique that is not very developed nor pretty, but he has good attitude, self confidence and stops the pucks, which it all is about in the end. He has a lot of advantage being of large size (62) and is pretty good at moving side-to-side. Has problems with high shots. Agility could still be better."

Last year he was hot, .929 Sv% and 1.94 GAA.
This year he's had a pair of bad games and hasn't had a chance to get going.

But I don't know if Owuya has good enough positioning or glove to make it to the NHL.
