Belfour to Detroit?
Is Ed Belfour planning on trading in the blue and white of the Leafs for the red and white of the WIngs?
According to the Toronto Sun, former Maple Leafs goaltender Ed Belfour is looking to sign with the Detroit Red Wings in a role that would see him backup starter Chris Osgood.
The paper quoted Belfour's agent Ron Salcer as saying that "Ed's plans are definitely to play goal again in the NHL. He's weighing his options, doing his therapy religiously (from spring back surgery) and making significant progress every day."
Asked if the Leafs' decision to terminate his contract last week would scare other teams away from the 41-year-old, Salcer retorted "it would be hard not to pay attention to Ed Belfour if he's available. He's come back from every kind of adversity."
Since when are the Wings planning on going with Osgood as the starter? I thought they were supposed to be in the market for Giguere or Biron?
