He's very close to being a bust but isn't one yet. He's 23 years old still and has a couple years left to show what he can do. Add that Allaire might be able to jump start his development and he could be back on track in no time. I won't hold my breathe for that to happen though.

He is close to being a bust. If he isn't retained by Leafs than he is bust for Leafs, if he stays, bad-average year next season means he is bust.

And i doubt any team would want him as a backup right now, he had like 2 good games i can remember. There are other fa goalies that could play as backup. Gerber is a much safer bet than Pogge as a backup goalie. At least you can expect .900 save % goaltending.

I hope he gets 1 year contract. Having new goalie coach can't hurt when you are that close to being a bust.

I think he's a little young for the "bust" label. If I'm a GM looking to acquire Pogge I'd be planning on having him play in the AHL for at least one more year. During Junior's reign the Leafs knew jack about running a development team and the organization suffered. A new organization and some decent coaching could do wonders for the kid.

Since my initial post got taken off the thread, I'll just say the rights to Pogge are worth nothing.

Exactly, Pogge isn't worth the cost it takes the Marlies to print his name on his jersey.

Plus, we here in Toronto love to toss away our prospect goalies... aka..Rask

That all being said, i think Pogge with time could (and its a big could) develop into a decent NHL goalie...maybe someone comparable too Biron.


Also: The guy who starts these threads should having his account locked...i'm positive its a troll account.

Its funny to see how all the Leafs fans are ******** on Pogge now when everyone last season was so high on him being great. I still think he has some good qualities but he needs to gain the most important thing to a goalie, confidence. Its hard when you play for the Leafs or Habs (Like Price last season), the pressure can really get to you if your a goalie. I think that a team that has a vet goalie who can teach him the do's and dont's could really help him alot. He needs a guy like Turco or Osgood to show him the ropes. He's at an all time low so why not throw a pick the leafs way to see if he can be something, which Im pretty sure he can. If the habs didnt have Halek as well id trade for him.

What would be better for Pogge - A year backing up a veteran goalie in the NHL or another chance to play some huge minutes in the "A"? A number of folks seem to think that riding the pine would be his next step and I really wonder if that would really help or hinder him at this point.

I wouldn't mind trading a late round pick for Pogge. Imagine bringing him to Boston and seeing him do well and in a couple of years watching how angry Toronto would be with a Rask/Pogge goalie duo against them.

He has no value, he hasn't performed well at the AHL level and was brutal well atrocious in the NHL when he had his chances. Someone might deal their problem for him if a trade did happen.
