Eddie what should they do

With the Leafs seating in 9th should it be time for a goalie change.??

Eddie isn’t a starter no more let’s face it he did have a good run but the run is over. Leafs could use him as a backup or let him go out as a starter that cannt carry a team anymore.

He’s too old to be carrying a team into the playoffs with a record of 21w 20L ga avg is 3.32.

This is shaping up for beening the worse season ever for Belfore and I say let him go out as a Leafs starter. But the leafs dont like anyone unless there winning when he’s winning the cheer and talk about him beening great. When he’s losing they boo him to death saying he’s worthless.

I think if that’s going to be a case trade him and let him go where they wouldnt boo him and where there no media all over you when you lose.

    For some reason, I don’t think they will.

    If they don’t, it will be a HORRIBLE move.

    They have to trade him. You are not going to pay him those bucks next year, and if you don’t pick up the contract, 1.5 million paid to Belfour WILL come off the cap.

    You have to dump him to whoever will take him, if it is at all possible.

    The cap is everything. Look at What the Raptors recently did. They basically gave up a 1st rounder to shed 13-19 million off the cap next year… all in all, a pretty good deal for them.

    he’s eddie what can you say. you cant try and trade your players whenever they’re playing poorly you’ve got to be patient. besides the guy is 40 (or 39?) ets at least give him the dignity of retiring in Toronto and not some strange city.

    Well in my humble opinion, I believe that Eddie must be kept if there is any glimmer of hope to get into the playoffs. If before the deadline, the Leafs are more then 6 to 8 points out, then trade Eddie to get any kind of asset for future references.

    There is no sense trading Eddie if the Leafs are going to make the playoffs. None whatsover!! Sure he is aging and isnt capable of quite the performances of years gone by but is Tellqvist?

    I believe Tellqvist has the capability of being a good goaltender if given a chance, but can he honestly be another Eddie Belfour or Martin Brodeur type. I dont believe under the ‘lights’ of a chase to the playoffs is the correct time to find out.

    But, if Belfour is traded, give Tellqvist every opportunity to play and truly see what kind of impact he will have on the team. Then, the coaching staff and management will get the opportunity to scout him in ‘real games’ and make a determination for next season.

    The sense in trading him is this:

    The Leafs are not winning the cup this year.

    The Leafs are not winning the cup next year.

    If he plays next year he makes a HUGE amount of money.

    If the Leafs do not pick up the option, they owe him about 1.5 mill … against the cap! That is not insignificant in the NHL.

    But you have to keep in mind that if and sure it is a big ‘if’ at this point, the Leafs make the playoffs, there is a minimum of 2 home dates for MLSE and that alone pays for more then the 1.5 million. If that doesnt count as consideration, then you might as well start a firesale of everyone that is ‘deadwood’ on the team.

    And i believe that with a the vital pairing of Kaberle/McCabe ( provided they do resign McCabe?), they have something to build on for the next few years to come.

    The salary cap will increase next season probably to a minimum of $42 million (everyone is saying $46 million but not keeping in mind, the ‘pool withheld’ by the owners. If you have to let go of one player (ie. Khavanov) to keep Eddie, and not affect the cap, go for it!

    Sorry Eddie, Its Time for this Eagle to retire to the Zoo. Or at least send him to the Zoo.

    If not Maybe the glue factory?

    No Offense to Eddie but he is just painful to watch, as is the majority of this leaf team lately.
