I'm listening to 32 thoughts and the impression I'm getting from Friedman is that pending a physical that this Murray deal is closer that it seems.

I'm wondering if Murray is it? Like would he be brought in as #1 goaltender himself or is there another move for a 1-A or 1-B type goalie ? Cap limitations may prove he's it. I'm just a little skeptical about Murray being the final solution to our goaltending situation.

Even if the Leafs feel confident in Murray rebounding I think his injury history will mean they'll definitely look to add another goalie in addition to him. I think Eric Comrie would be a very intriguing UFA option, Stolarz or whichever one of Riemer/Hill the Sharks decides not to keep would be trade targets.

Just moving this to avoid Murray being talked about in 3 different threads.

Maybe it's nostalgia, but I'd be comfortable with a Murray/Reimer combo.  Stolarz would be good too, but I don't see Anaheim trading him just yet - especially if they're shopping Gibson.

I'm assuming Gibson isn't going anywhere. Edmonton, Washington, and the Leafs would seem like the only landing spots for him and all 3 teams look like they're going with someone else. It might make more sense for Anaheim to move Stolarz later in the season though to a team that needs a midseason upgrade. Unless of course they want to join Chicago in the tank-off.

I was expecting this to be a joke, but it's a real thread with data and everything from a sens writer.

Unless Murray rediscovers the game he had in his first few years in Pittsburgh, I'm not convinced he's an upgrade. Of course, Campbell comes with similar questions (is he the Campbell we saw in 2021? 2022? Somewhere in between?).

Other than Kuemper, there aren't great obvious options out there. They're all sort of in the "he can be really good in the right situation/circumstances" types, and that's not the best group to be plucking from. If Murray ends up being the cheapest (both in terms of cap and acquisition cost) and performs similarly, then maybe it's the right move - but, there's a lot of ifs and maybes. Unless Dubas really feels he can't land Kuemper or Murray is being brought in with double retention, little to no cost (or, even, some sort of asset included - though, with double retention, that would be unlikely) as a 1B/platoon/backup, I don't think there's urgency to get this done.
