I get that but at the same time Kipper is no slouch and will command a hefty price. Is that something the Leafs would want to take on for really only 1 guaranteed year of service? Given the big price tag on Kipper I'd think the Leafs would be better suited using those assets elsewhere.

At this point it's safe to rule out this season from happening IMO so looking at next years' UFA goalie corp there are a few vets that could be had for mentorship purposes without giving up the amount of assets needed to snag Kipper (Mason, Boucher, Theodore, plus others that have a smaller chance of hitting the market like Backstrom).
