Wow, surprised on Carrick and McElhinney
Ah I see you too, have @LeafsPR notifications on
Very surprised Carrick and McElhinney were waived. I don't want Marincin touching the ice at all.
I expect McBackup and Carrick to be claimed.
Disappointed Sparks was handed a spot. I imagine Babcock feels the same.
Are you ****ing kidding me, Sparks?! He would've been my last choice.
What is the reasoning for keeping Sparks over McElhinney?
I’m really suprised
Surprised that Curtis McElhinney was waived, wrong goalie IMO.
No one was willing to give anything for Carrick, not surprised. Hopefully McBackup slips through.
Sparks in no way shape or form earned his spot of McBackup. If this came from the top, it killed the message that spots are earned, as it is obvious this was an asset decision and not a earned spot.
McBackup will be claimed. Would be surprised if any of these guys cleared honestly. First game Sparks ****s the bed in I can't wait to see these boards.
McBackup was always steady and reliable. I don't trust Sparks he is trash. First move I heavily dislike by management in over three years.
Not surprised on McElhinny! He's 39. Sparks would have been claimed on his AHL performance and championship for sure.
If McBackup doesn’t get claimed we can always bring him back up, nothing is certain yet
Sparks will cost the Leafs 20 pts this season.
McElhinney had no reason to be waived.
Yeah some of these guys are getting claimed. Especially Carrick since Jerebek literally just got a 6th after going on waivers.
Carolina needs a goalie with Darling hurt, so that could be one. Unless these guys want to give us a pick after these guys clear (like Pickard last year) so they can move up and down and so they can dump a contract on us.
So Marincin made the team? FML!
Why are you hoping Sparks does poorly, it’s in all of our best interest to see him to well.
big mistake waving McBackup I think.
not sure I'm on the same page as Dubas with this one. but if he gets through wavers, then Dubas is back to being a genius.
I wish they would've given Pickard a better chance, Sparks sucked every chance he got in the preseason, and McBackup didn't play too well but he has a proven track record
At age 35, not surprised on McElhinny. Sparks would have been claimed for sure given his AHL performance and Calder Cup.
Such a small sample size for our Leafs to lose Sparks on waivers. Sure, he didn't look good in a couple of preseason games. So what. Too early to just give him away.
I'm not willing to write Sparks off. No sense trashing him in this thread. I would have kept McBackup personally, but some of you guys are being overly dramatic and need to give Sparks a chance.
hopefully just as a 7th who doesn't play.
I'm not hoping he does poorly. I am not a fan. Seems like a good guy, but watching him with the Marlies he is not an NHL level goalie. I didn't see anything in pre-season that changed my mind.
Goes to show "tie goes to the vet" is subjective. If I was McBackup I would be pissed.
