Still no takers for Raycroft

Still not traded, despite being shopped for 2-months

Last month, I wrote an article reporting that NHL teams were not expressing interest in acquiring Andrew Raycroft.

I indicated that GMs around the league are well aware that Raycroft was the primary reason the Leafs failed to make the playoffs, being ranked no. 32 in goals against and no. 35 in save percentage, despite the Leafs being ranked no. 2 in shots on goal differential.

In Sunday’s Toronto Sun, Steve Simmons is finally reporting what I pointed out last month – that there is still very little interest in Raycroft.

How Good Can the Leafs Be?

If you have kept track of the Leafs off-season you will know that they are vastly improved from last year. They improved goaltending and scoring and kept a good blue-line intact. Many would say the Leafs overacheived last year for such a average team when teams with star power and depth like Carolina finished lower. I think that 6th place is a good prediction for the Leafs because injuries will likely show their ugly face once again.
