Underprivileged kids throughout the GTA are celebrating right now as the greatest friend the Boys and Girls Club ever had, Curtis Joseph, is returning to play for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Whether they left through trade, free agency, or were denied through fickle fate, they always end up coming back to the Leafs. On the ice or in the office they want to be a part of it again. CuJo is the latest of these signing a 1 year deal. The terms are so far undisclosed, but will surely be no more than $750,000.
Cujo will bring experience, dependability and a 41 year-old body to the Leafs. I know some people were saying that Justin Pogge should be called to back up Toskala, but now that Scott Clemmensen is gone, Justin will get the net to himself for a full season with the Marlies. Taking a lot of time is better with Pogge as his development is incredibly important to the Leafs organization. CuJo played well for Calgary backing up Kiprusoff playing in 9 games (not far off the projected 15 he'll play for the Leafs) for a .906 PCT.
