Curtis Joseph will not be wearing the Blue and White next year.
Regardless of whether or not the Toronto Maple Leafs can sign Swedish free agent goalie Jonas (The Monster) Gustavsson, considered the best goalie not playing in the NHL, Joseph’s days are numbered in Toronto.
“Great service as a Leaf,” Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke told the Toronto Sun. “But we are moving on.”
Joseph posted a save percentage of .869 and goals against average of 3.57 for Toronto.
The Toronto Sun report also suggests the Leafs won’t retain restricted free agent Justin Pogge, once believed to be the goalie of the future in T.O. Martin Gerber has not been ruled out by Burke as returning.
