Leafs eyeing Kipper? (Kypreos: Kiprusoff will not report if traded, Post #316)

Lebrun was on TSN Radio today and was asked if the Flames are finally embracing a rebuild would the Leafs contact Calgary about Kipper? Lebrun said it wouldn't shock him if Kipper was a target. He said while they like what they see from Reimer they want to bring in a vet for him to learn from.

He also said not in connection with Kipper he feels one of Bozak or Macarthur will be gone by the deadline.

Also said keep an eye on Mike Smith

As a fan of both teams I just can't see why the Leafs would want Kiprusoff. He's had some decent games, but overall his play this year has not been great. And he's 36.

Maybe if the price was really low... but even then I'd almost rather run with Reimer and Scrivens.

I'd rather run Kipprusoff/Reimer than Reimer/Scrivens.

Price pending, of course.

Flames can have Carter Ashton and a conditional 3rd.

Leafs likely not want to pay the price Calgary wants. Plus he hasn't been good this year.

Would be a good move for the Leafs if the price isn't too high.

He would be a nice mentor for Reimer for a few years.

I think it would be easier to make a list of players the Leafs "aren't eyeing up"

I don't see this working, the Flames don't really want to sell, they're only one player away.

Don't see what the Leafs can offer.

They won't give up top prospects and first round picks for rentals.

Why would the Flames want Bozak for Kipper when he's UFA after this season?

I have a hard time interpreting those statements. It only makes sense to acquire Kipper if you are making a push for the playoffs. If you do that, why trade Bozak or MacArthur? They would both be able to contribute.

If the Leafs are out of the playoff race by April 3rd (which I don't believe), I suspect Anaheim would be interested in Bozak. He could play 2C on our team and probably would be cheaper than Roy from Dallas. And then don't forget the Anaheim/Toronto relationship.

as a fan of both teams you know how BAD the team in front of Kiprusoff is. Age doesn't concern me MANY goalies play at a high level into their 40's

even at 36 I'd give Kiprusoff 3 years 16.5 mil easy not even a 2nd thought

Well said. I'd love to have him in Toronto.

What has his year been like?

At the beginning of the year I was hearing the price was huge to get him and now some fans would take Scrivens ++?

Yes, Bozak fits as our 3rd line center and we can offer him money most teams can't, Kipper has had a great run but he needs a change and deserves to play for a playoff team.

Same here. Just high enough for Nonis to say no.

He blew until he got hurt, he has started to look better but there isn't much of a market for goalies. I would gladly do something around Scrivens.

Scrivens and Ashton for Kipper.
