Rumor: Maple Leafs & Rangers Close To Finalizing Trade

The Toronto Maple Leafs are said to be addressing the weaknesses in their roster; namely back-up goaltender, Michael Hutchinson.
He is currently 2-5-1 on the season, with an abysmal 4.03 GAA and 0.833 SV%. The Maple Leafs have significantly improved since their uninspiring start to the season, and are looking to upgrade between the pipes.

The Maple Leafs are reportedly close to finalizing a deal with the New York Rangers. This trade rumor involves moving 23 year old goaltender, Alexandar Georgiev, to the Maple Leafs in exchange for prospects Jeremy Bracco or Dmytro Timashov, along with some draft picks.  Georgiev's impressive season as Lundqvist's back-up features a 0.915 SV% and a 2.99 GAA on a team with an unfavourable record.

This comes as no surprise as the both the Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Rangers have been linked to previous rumors regarding the shopping of both prospects and big name veterans. We can expect Kyle Dubas and Jeff Gorton to finalize this deal in the near future.

More to come.
