Kaskisuo is a solid minor league goalie that gives the organization some depth and can be called up in a drastic situation. With Ian Scott and Joseph Woll being a couple of years away from being pro goaltenders, the Leafs need a couple of guys for the minor system. In my opinion, Sparks has the potential to be a serviceable backup in the NHL but nothing more and I don't believe he is a very valuable asset. I don't think his numbers on a very good AHL will automatically translate into being a regular NHL goalie. McElhinney was very good this year and he only has one year left on his contract. I think McElhinney will be the backup this year then make way for Sparks or someone from outside the organization.
