Perhaps the most important acquisition made by Ken Holland has flown largely under the radar. The popular slogan “Goaltending wins championships” (at least until the Wings got a goaltender, at which point it changed to “A good farm system wins championships”) has been largely supported in the past, with such big names as Roy, Belfour, Broduer, and Vernon capturing Stanley Cups, and two of the last five and three of the past eight (not entirely sure on that figure) Conn Smythe winners being goaltenders.

Peter Forsberg has resumed skating again for the first time since May 10th when he had surgery to remove his spleen. At home in Sweden, the superstar center has been having on ice workouts for the past week and expects to be ready for his NHL teamates to join him in Europe.
The Toronto Star and TSN’s web site are reporting that there have been talks to bring Doug Gilmour to Toronto. Both are reporting that the deal could be done in the next two weeks. Gilmour said Thursday morning that the two sides have talked and that it would be a great fit for both the Leafs and him.
