The legend continues.
Knew he would be gone. Sucks
Expected but this had to happen. There was no way he should've been chose over both Pickard and Sparks.
Good luck to Mac. He did everything the Leafs needed from him. Hope he gets some success with the Canes.
Canes needed just that one extra backup goalie...
Not surprising with Darling out.
so just like that, TO doesn't have a Plan C for goaltending
I knew it.
Oh well, Carolina is a good team with horrible goaltending, so he's getting a good shot here.
Sparks getting 20 games this year.
I bet the reactions to this are calm and reasonable.
Good luck Mac.
You did great for us.
Pickard gone to Philly lol.
If he plays anything like he did last year in his backup role, you'll be extremely happy with this free pickup.
The Leafs had 3 goalies playing in the AHL last season.
Kasimir Kaskisuo was loaned to Chicago and had great numbers. I assume he'll be the Marlies starter. Justin Peters was in Marlies camp on a PTO. I assume he'll be signed as the Marlies backup unless something else comes up.
Regardless, not the end of the world.
Good luck Mac, he did well for us.
Didn't see that. Looks like Sparks it is.
Me right now.
McElbackup rises from the ashes
He has a good chance at becoming McStarter in Carolina
He’ll probably be better than darling
**** I was hoping 1 of McBackup or Pickard made it through. I guess its a testament to management that our depth is that strong.
He was good for us but happy I don't have to hear ****ty "McBackup and McStarter" etc. jokes anymore
Best of luck Mac. You did us well in TO, most all of us will be rooting for you in Carolina. Class act, ultimate professional!
I wouldn't be shocked if the Leafs claim him back when Carolina waives him when Darling comes back. He's a reel gud pro.
