If there is a goalie who is familiar with being in a tandem, it’s Greiss and it looks like his time on Long Island could be coming to a close.
The 34-year-old is a pending unrestricted free agent and probably won’t be returning with Ilya Sorokin expected to make the move to the NHL. What Greiss has shown during his time with the Islanders is that he can be paired with another goalie and be extremely productive.
This season, Greiss had a 16-9-4 record with a 2.74 GAA and a .913 save percentage. That’s respectable from a goalie who started 28 games and last season he was better than that with a .927 save percentage and 2.28 GAA in 43 games in 2018-19.
With a $3.75 million cap hit, Greiss could command a decent salary on a short term deal on a team that needs a tandem option. Could that be the Leafs? It would probably be a more stable option than someone like Georgiev and Cam Talbot but one thing is for certain, the Leafs will have some options to consider if they move off of Andersen.
What do you think the Leafs should do with their goaltending situation? Would it be worth it to move Andersen for someone else? Who would be an ideal replacement? Let us know in the comments below.
