The Toronto Maple Leafs found themselves in a tough situation this off-season when goaltender Jack Campbell left via free agency, and Petr Mrazek was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Many wondered what the Leafs' General Manager, Kyle Davidson, would do in terms of their goaltending situation. Dubas surprised many by taking on injury-prone Matt Murray, along with a pair of draft picks from the Ottawa Senators, in exchange for future considerations.
The acquisition of Murray raised a lot of eyebrows, with many questioning Dubas's decision-making. Despite this, Dubas remained confident that Murray would return to his Stanley Cup-winning form. However, this has not been the case, and with Ilya Samsonov out indefinitely, the Leafs are now relying on their third-choice goaltender, Joseph Woll.
Murray has played in just 26 games this season and has one year left on his current contract, which pays him $6.25 million and includes a 10-team no-trade clause.
This means that Dubas will have to trade away picks or prospects to another team to offload Murray, or he will remain on the team's salary cap. This is not a desirable situation for a general manager looking to renegotiate a new contract with the Leafs.
