Toskala has to get going. This team isn't going to just sit here and hope he picks his game up. If he has another stinker I think there will be a strong threat towards his job. Joey MacDonald is a capable backup and can easily sit in for Toskala.
It's the one team in the league that he might actually be better than both of their goalies.
Huet has been really good the past 7 or 8 games. He's 4th in the west in GAA. Toskala is not better than him. His term/contract is, but Huet is the better goalie, plain and simple. Huet has been better because our goalie coach told him not to go down on his knees so early aswell
gusty didn't look amazing last game, and its time for toskala to have another kick at the can(maybe he will start playing better)
and im guessing gusty will play Saturday, so might as well not tire him out
As much as no one may want it, he has to play a game at some point and this seems like as good as a time as any. Coming off a loss and having to face two tough teams in a back to back situation is pretty much the perfect time to start him actually.
he's gotta play eventually, if he's healthy... better to give him Friday, see how he does and save the monster for hockey night in Canada...
good move, he might show up hoping to win back his job.
I can't remember exactly but during the interview with Tosk he mentions that he's glad to see Gust and rest of the team playing well recently, and his layoff actually gave his knee(?) enough time to fully recover and ready to face the Hawks. I truly hope he does well tomorrow.
Let's see which team shows up in front of Toskala tonight. For his sake and the
teams, I hope it's the one that recently got a bunch of points and not the one
that was playing the start of the year and last game. I'm still not convinced Toskala
is as bad as everyone thinks he is. Love him or hate him, his playing well will only benefit the Leafs so let's all get behind him and get some positive vibes going his way.
