The Toronto Maple Leafs announced on Wednesday that they have signed goalie Ben Scrivens to a two-year contract.

Scrivens, who split last season between the Maple Leafs and the AHL Toronto Marlies, is projected to stick with the Maple Leafs as the club's back-up behind James Reimer. Jonas Gustavsson, who appeared in 42 games last season for Toronto, signed a two-year contract with the Detroit Red Wings this summer as a free agent.

Scrivens, who turned 26 on Tuesday, was 4-5-2 with a 3.13 goals against average in 12 games for the Maple Leafs last season. He was 22-15-1 with four shutouts for the Marlies in 39 regular season appearances and led the AHL with a 2.04 goals against average. He backstopped the Marlies on the team's run to the Western Conference title and a berth in the Calder Cup final.

The native of Spruce Grove, Alberta was a restricted free agent and earned $600,000 at the NHL level last season.

Plan the Parade Toronto!! [sarcasm\]



:bigblush:

Edit - added sarcasm for those who couldn't figure it out.

The only route to plan is the one Brian Burke takes out of his office after getting the boot.

Riemer and Scrivens will improve their numbers next season under Caryle's defensive system. Toronto will be in tough to make the playoffs with lots of good teams in the East.

Unless Gillis wanted a cheap backup signed to a contract as part of what's coming back - like Scrivens, who also happens to be Ivy League-educated, which Gillis appears to place some value on.

It's possible, but I still doubt that Luongo would waive to be a Leaf, anyway.

At least quote everything.. You know the "plan the parade route" and the :bigblush: which shows just how serious I was...

This obviously changes nothing in regards to the Luongo situation.

People make fun of Scrivins but they praise Lack here. Scrivins was the best goalie in the AHL last season, winning the Harry Haps Memorial trophy. He outplayed Lack, Ben Bishop, Jacob Markstrom, and Matt Hackett, just to name a few

Wait, what? Lack would be a decent back-up goalie.

I wonder if people here would realize just how good this kid is if he wasn't a Leaf.

Fair enough, they have two young goalies with upside but I doubt either James or Ben here will be able to take the reins and run with it the way that a legit #1 in the NHL could... James is probably still a 1B, better suited to be a backup but has the upside to start his share of games (like Schneider, TBH) and from what I've seen I really like Ben's calm demeanor in net, he doesn't seem to overreact but just gets his frame in front of the puck and lets it hit him... in the future he could very well become a #1 for the Blue and White (though I doubt that they would be able to bring T.O. to the promised land of the second season)

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.


Jesus LOVES YOU!
2012, meet Matthew 24:36-47!

14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Scrivens most certainly is not the answer to the Leafs goaltending problems

The main difference here is we aren't praising Lack to become our goaltender savior.
Scrivens and Lack both aren't NHL ready couple more seasons and maybe they will become goalie beasts
