Maple Leafs make contact with Marty Turco

5:31 PM: Darren Millard via twitter: Leafs GM Brian Burke told Millard that they have no interest in Marty Turco.

5:20 PM: James Duthie via twitter: Turco didn’t speak directly with the Leafs, they just asked his agent some questions.

4:28 PM: Mike Brophy via twitter: Brophy is reporting that the Maple Leafs have made contact with free agent goalie Marty Turco. Turco has been working out with the Soo Greyhounds.

If this true and they bring in Turco, it could mean 2 things. Firstly, James Reimer is out long term and they are not happy with Jonas Gustavsson being the backup to Ben Scrivens. Or it could mean that they are not happy with Jonas Gustavsson backing up James Reimer. Scrivens could use some seasoning as the starter with the Marlies.

    the leafs need turco badly.. its time to move on from this Monster mistake they have made.. bury him in the marlies for the remainder of the year and his maple leaf career..

    hopefully the leafs go the turco route and save tradeable assets for an upgrade in their top 6

    Just lookin at some goalie stats, and I see Mike Smith in PHX post a 7-2-3 record, a 2.22GAA and a .931 save pct, that defense isnt that great (asides from yandle), they lost jovocop, the team didn’t make any significant moves in the off-season.

    makes me think that dave tippet is a fuckin genius, and makes me question how good bryzgalov really is

    (hey phoenix, wanna trade coaches with the leafs?)

    The LEAFS make contact with a goalie as well??? You see Shanahan, THIS is why you’ve gotta suspend Lucic, everyone else is making contact with other goalies now :)
