Maple Leafs Rumors: Veteran Goalie Finished in Toronto

The Toronto Maple Leafs will look much different next season including who starts the 2023-24 campaign as their goalie tandem. Next season expect to see Joseph Woll and Ilya Samsonov in the Maple Leafs' plans with Matt Murray either bought out or traded this summer.

The 28-year-old Murray struggled to stay healthy in his first season with the Maple Leafs and only appeared in 26 games, winning 14 of them. His .903 Sv.% is well below league average. The two-time Stanley Cup champion finally got healthy during the Stanley Cup Playoffs, however the Leafs decided to start the youngster Woll instead, someone with minimal playoff experience.

Murray has one season left on his deal at $4.6 million against Toronto's books as the Ottawa Senators have money retained. The netminder owns a 10-team no-trade clause and will have some say if trade talks pick up. A buyout costs the Leafs under a million in the first year and $2 million in 2024-25. 

Potential suitors include the Pittsburgh Penguins, San Jose Sharks, Los Angeles Kings and Detroit Red Wings. Murray's time with Toronto, it's over.
