Georgiev trade rumours escalating?

Share This Post

It’s been reported that The New York Rangers and The Toronto Maple Leafs are in conversation with regard to possible trades. Rumour has it that the Alexander Georgiev trade rumours could be escalating? The Rangers are trying to get a price that is too high and Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas will not be willing to pay.

Word on the street is The New York Rangers and The Toronto Maple Leafs have been talking business with goaltender Alexander Georgiev being the big talking point.
The Maple Leafs are looking to acquire a reliable back up to support starting net-minder Frederik Andersen. It is a move that would finally allow the Leafs to take some of the pressure off of Andersen, something that the Leafs have been trying to do for a few seasons now. 

The biggest problem this trade would offer is the fact that The New York Rangers want far too much for Georgiev, a price too steep for The Maple Leafs to pay for a back up goalie. Needless to say the gap between Maple Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas and Rangers general manager Jeff Gorton’s idea on the price for Alexander Georgiev is a fairly significant one. 

Dubas doesn’t stop Georgiev trade rumours

Georgiev trade rumours escalating

The Athletics, Toronto Maple Leafs insider James Mirtle said:

“Both teams have kept trade talks quiet, so specifics are somewhat lacking. But it’s believed that the Leafs are willing to part with futures – including someone like AHL-er Jeremy Bracco – in order to land Georgiev. The Rangers, however, are asking for more established players, presumably, the likes of Leafs forwards Kasperi Kapanen, Andreas Johnsson or Alexander Kerfoot.”

With all these Georgiev trade rumours escalating, Could this mean that Henrik Lundqvist stays and has Igor Shesterkin back him up at The New York Rangers? Seems that way if Alexander Georgiev does get traded but the Toronto Maple Leafs would be crazy to part ways with any of the 3 players named in a 1 for 1 trade deal as all 3 play a significant number of minutes for The Leafs.

Although The Leafs would like to take the pressure and workload off of Frederik Andersen I don’t think that making such a drastic trade for a goalie who is only going to play minimal games is the right way to go about it moving forward.
