Is the Leafs' goaltending going to hold up?

NHL: Buffalo Sabres at Toronto Maple Leafs Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

This week I was joined by The Athletic’s editor-in-chief James Mirtle to discuss the Leafs’ goaltending situation. How is Frederik Andersen going to hold up with this kind of workload? Were the Leafs right to give up on Jhonas Enroth? Should they bring him (or someone like him) back to provide relief?

We also chatted about the Leafs’ lack of defence – that is, their lack of shot-suppressing defenders, and how their forwards contribute to this situation.

Worth noting is that Mirtle made listeners an offer to tweet at him about subscribing for a discounted price on signing up for The Athletic, which I would advise doing, because they are putting out some great content.

As usual, feel free to download this podcast for later listening if you don’t find time to stream it today.
