Tellqvist is in
With back woes taking Ed Belfour out of tonight's Toronto-Boston game, there's talk that Swedish youngster Mikael Tellqvist could earn himself the starter's role to close the season.
Depending upon how long Belfour is out, Tellqvist could get an extended string of games and the chance to show that he can be a No. 1 goalie for this franchise. If that happens, how Tellqvist plays will likely go a long way to determining how the Leafs deal with Belfour's contract this summer.The Leafs would desperately like to rid themselves of Belfour's $4.5-million contract next season, so what they really need is for Tellqvist to show he's capable of taking this team's reins next year. How better to do that than to lead this team to at least sniffing distance of the final playoff spot?
