We lost Nabokov from the wavier. Should we find the other goaltender backup Jimmy Howard if Osgood can't come back? I think Toskala is another good choice for us. Although his record in Leafs were very bad, his reocrds in Sharks were good. So should we give him a chance in Motown????

No. Simple as that. There is a reason the guy is playing in the minors.

He's terrible. His numbers for the Sharks WERE good until he got a big contract, at which point he began eating donuts and stopped working hard.

That said, he played in the SEL this season. As such, he'd need to go through waivers just like Nabokov did.

Ozzie has started skating, and Howie had 45 saves last game.

I think we will be okay.

This. We hit our regular post-New Year slump (if that's what you can call it every year) and now seem things seem to be righting themselves. Give Howard a bit more rest towards the end of the season and then he'll be ready

Yeah we shot it to him from our red line, and he clearly missed it.

This is a joke right? Is there another goalie with the last name of Toskala that I am unaware of, or are you actually proposing THIS Vesa Toskala:

I think he sucks and I'd never want him on any NHL team anymore. Because there's a chance he may be returning to SM-liiga to his original club Ilves and he's still a good goalie at that level.

Once you've played in Toronto you come with a funky smell that no one wants to deal with anymore !

"Hard Work Beats Talent When Talent Refuses to Work Hard"

 

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

come on, I know you're playing Devil's advocate, but had he squared his body with the puck and not gone down when it was still 7 feet away, that wouldn't have happened... the crazy bounce maybe would have caused a scare, but it wouldn't have ended up in the back of the net...

I wandered by to post exactly this. Whenever I'm bored, my two favorite youtube searches are Yzerman highlights and Toskala lowlights.
