October 2nd, 2018 was not a great day when it comes to organizational depth for the Maple Leafs between the pipes.
Calvin Pickard goes to Philadelphia, Curtis McElhinney to Carolina.

With Garret Sparks being given the #2 spot with the big club the two ‘extra’ goalies were free to get plucked by any team that might want their services.
Where does that leave the Maple Leafs/Marlies now?
Kasimir Kaskisuo should be considered the #3 goalie in the organization and the starter for the defending Calder Cup Champions, the Toronto Marlies.
Kaskisuo was loaned to the Chicago Wolves of the AHL last season based on the fact the Marlies had too many goalies to play.
Not an issue anymore.
Who backs up Kaski? Where do we turn if Sparks (oft injured) or Andersen were to drop from injury.
The Leafs just went from not having many concerns, to a significant pucker factor in my opinion.
Maybe Kyle has something up his sleeve?
Sure hope so.
Also in some good news.
Scott Moore has resigned as president of Sportsnet and NHL Properties. He was with Rogers for almost eight years and was the last of the three executives who landed the big NHL deal to leave the company.
