They really need to "extend" his recovery to the end of the season and LTIR him. The extra cap space (assuming it's used of course) is worth more than Andersen playing another 3-4 regular season games.

There’s that, too. If Andersen is out another two weeks or so, that leaves just enough time for the team to send him on a 14 day conditioning stint that would end when the regular season ends - and, after missing 5+ weeks right after returning from an injury? Going that route would feel pretty legit.

I have no idea how any of this works, but what if they put him on LTIR and then Campbell gets hurt and can't play and they don't want to run with Hutch?  Can Andersen suddenly "get better" and be activated before the end of the season?

They can only go for 3 games, 6 days max. They could ask for an extension of 5 games max. If Fred is healthy he's not staying there for 5 games.

Andersen hasn’t been on the ice with the team in 3 weeks. He may not have skated at all in this stretch. I think saying he’s expected back “relatively soon” is a bit of an overstatement. He might not be out for the rest of the season, but he’s not coming back in the near term.

But it's either the rest regular season or the cap space isn't usable.

Sure, but, if they’re using it, there’s a plan in place to deal with those issues. The Leafs have one of the best cap guys in the league. If there’s a way to make it work, they’ll make it work.

Yeah, obviously they have a plan if they use the space.
 
But You said that he "might not be out for the rest of the season, but he's not coming back in the near term" and I was just commenting that if its not the rest of the season, then it doesn't matter capwise if its in the near term or not.

Noodles says it would take a week for a goalie to get back into game shape so it wouldn't take that long for him.

Not sure I put too much stock in what noodles says about recovery times. It varies by position, injury, individual, etc. He could easily need more time than that.

On Wednesday Minnesota beat Colorado 8-3. Tonight they lost to St. Louis by a score of 9-1.

That's wild.
