Minimal money for a 3rd string goalie, still not sure where BT is coming up with the cap space.

Better not be doing something crazy like leaving Woll in the AHL.

Good depth signing. Weird how this guy used to be a top starter and then turned into a backup/3rd goalie while still in what should be his prime.

Martin Jones, once a proud starting goalie, forever doomed to travel the league as a journeyman depth goalie.

mmm no lul

Jones is the #3 look at the numbers.

Toronto did this as in the event Sammy or Woll gets hurt their options were 2 guys with 0 NHL experience in Petruzelli and Hilldety. Jones basically is insurance

Plus Woll's on a 2 year under league min deal and when you factor in his numbers and the fact he needs to go on waivers yea no

I mean it’s goalie depth but he sucks. Hopefully he’s just playing with the Marlies

Toronto would have to Waive Woll for that and with his contract someone would take him

Good signing

Now its

Sammy = Starter
Woll = Tandem/Backup
Jones = #3

Only problem I see is this guy could be stolen off waivers

Injury insurance for barely above league min. This is a good signing, although I do agree with everyone saying he could get grabbed from waivers.

Hello waivers come the end of training camp just for the Coyotes, Hawks, etc of the NHL to get a body to play in net!

Basically Kallgren replacement with more experience for minimal money, plus all salary so buyout is an option if it gets that bad (I don’t expect it to)

I don't think it's worth the contract, but it doesn't hurt to have a veteran 3G

The Kraken definitely got their money's worth out of Jones last year. There weren't high expectations with him but he played quite well over the first half of the season and was part of the reason why Seattle got off to as good of a start as they did. However, his gaudy win totals were a bit misleading, since a number of them had more to do with the Kraken's goalscoring in front of him rather than his play. Sure enough, Jones came crashing back down to earth down the stretch and Grubauer reclaimed the starter's net. With Gru, Daccord, and the returning Driedger, Seattle's pretty set in net for this year so there wasn't really room to bring Jones back. I am a bit surprised he signed with the Leafs; Jones is pretty clearly the third option there and I thought he'd latch on with a team where he'd have a much cleaner path to a backup role. However, I wouldn't be surprised if he gets claimed off waivers by a team who loses one of their goalies to injury during training camp and needs a replacement.

That feeling when you see his cap hit and you just know it's going to be his save percentage too.

No I do not like it. He has been legitimately bad every year since 2017/2018. To put that in perspective that is 2 years before the pandemic. He had 3 good years from 25-27. He's 33. NHL teams shouldn't be signing him.

If he is the third string goalie in the AHL wahtever, but if there is any thought of him playing over Woll, even with a great camp its dumb.

The Leafs really needed a third string goalie. This achieves exactly that while also bringing some veteran experience to the team

Kind of shocked he got more than league min, but I don't mind it

Why??
Good price, but you have like 3 younger goalies in the minors who could be called up and if you send him down, he'll likely get claimed off of waivers anyways. On top of that Leafs have negative cap so it's not like he's gonna be a scratch.
