1. Retain Jack Campbell
Jack Campbell has been the hardest matchup for Andrei Vasilevskiy thus far, not many goalies can say that they pushed him to the limits in the last three postseasons than Campbell.
He has displayed the ability to be reliable in net and seems to possess the poise needed for a team to win the Stanley Cup.
The Toronto Maple Leafs will be looking for a starting goaltender next season, so why not re-sign Campbell?
The Leafs have Petr Mrazek on their cap at 3.8 million, but he hasn’t played that well to deserve the starting job. If the Maple Leafs can trade him and open up that money, then Campbell could be re-signed for about 5 million.
The Leafs currently seem to know what they would be signing, so I would rather see him in net than Carter Hart (massive price tag) or John Gibson (not impressive performances in the playoffs).
The tandem of Campbell and Erik Kallgren was good enough to earn the second seed in a stacked Atlantic division, as well.
As they have Kallgren signed for next season, this should really be the tandem they should trust moving forward. Would it be great to have another elite goaltender? Of course, we have seen this in the postseason for years. But, the cap isn’t in the Leafs favor.
