He was not the problem in Toronto. Unfair scapegoat.

Always loved Toskala

It's crazy to think that at one point in time, San Jose had a trio of Nabokov, Kipper, and Toskala :shock:

He suffered a similar fate as Cloutier, which is a shame. He was better than what he'll be remembered for.

By the way, did anyone notice that they always pronounced his name differently in the NHL games than they did on TV?

He was an average goalie playing on a below average Leafs team - makes him look worse than he was.

Good luck in retirement, Vesa.

He didn't ruin himself. Toronto ruined him.

Either way he gets the last laugh he's a millionaire.

He played well with the Sharks, still remember when they were faced with the decision to go with either him or Nabokov and they elected to stick with Nabokov; but man did Toronto ever destroy him.

Really? He's only 35...I would've thought he could have gotten a job in Europe.

Had some bad times, but overall, was a pretty decent goaltender. He had two winning seasons with the Leafs and was fantastic during some of his early days with the Sharks.
