Although the Miikka Kiprusoff rumors are heating up, he won't add any fuel to the flames.
"Well, like I said a few days ago, I'm here getting ready for the next game," Kiprusoff said. "I'm not talking about any trade stuff or any rumors." The Maple Leafs reportedly have interest in Kiprusoff, but his camp reportedly stated that he wouldn't play for a new team if traded. That led to the Maple Leafs gaining permission to talk to Kiprusoff directly. The latest report suggests that Kiprusoff would be willing to go to Toronto if the Leafs agree to "adjust" his contract for next season. It remains to be seen if the addition of Kiprusoff would lead to James Reimer serving as the team's backup despite Reimer's superior numbers this season or if Kiprusoff would be comfortable serving as the backup.
