    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.

    I knew it.
    Oh well, Carolina is a good team with horrible goaltending, so he's getting a good shot here.

    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.

    **** I was hoping 1 of McBackup or Pickard made it through. I guess its a testament to management that our depth is that strong.

    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.
