Hell no lol are we better with John tavares up front? absolutely. Does he offset going from Andersen to a kid with 17 NHL games, over a 3.00 GAA and under .900 sv%? Not a chance. Anyone who has consistently watched the leafs over the last 2 seasons will tell you that even though Matthews scored 75 goals in less than 150 games, and even though he was a highlight reel almost every night, Freddy Andersen was the teams MVP almost every single game. He is more the reason for success than Matthews so far as crazy as that is, because Matthews has been amazing. We didn’t get good enough to lose him. And it’s not like a slight drop off, it’s from a proven star goalie to an unknown commodity at that level.

Makes zero sense to trade Anderson. It would probably hurt the the leafs more then buying out Mathews Sparks would be the worst starting goalie in NHL history.

With Matthews, Kadri, bozak, Andersen we are top half of the league in centre depth and have great goaltending.

With Matthews Tavares Kadri sparks we would be with penguins, capitals and Oilers for best centres in the league but would be bottom 3 if not dead last goaltending.

Even Crosby and Malkin wouldn’t have 3 cups without good to great goaltending behind them.
