I'd agree that internal competition never hurts, but the Leafs kinda already have enough goalies in the organization, IMO. Reimer and Bernier in the NHL. MacIntyre in the AHL and Sparks/Gibson should compete with each other for the backup role with the Marlies, with the loser of that battle going down to the ECHL. Also, keep in mind they share their ECHL affiliation with the Minnesota Wild, so theoretically the Leafs get one of the goalie spots with Orlando and the Wild get the other. Plus they just drafted Bibeau, who is eligible to turn pro next year because he's a '94.
