A Solution to the Leafs' Goalie Dilemma

The Toronto Maple Leafs are in a tough spot. They already have Matt Murray and Joseph Woll on the team, and Ilya Samsonov is seeking arbitration, which would add to their salary cap problems. To manage their finances for the next season, the Leafs might have to say goodbye to either Murray or Samsonov, or possibly both.
There is a big trade proposal on the table that could solve the Leafs' goalie issue.

Trade Proposal

This trade scenario is seen as beneficial for both teams. The Leafs need to stay within the salary cap, while the Flyers have more financial flexibility.
Both Hart and Samsonov have similar statistics. Hart has been consistently good, and Samsonov had an impressive breakout season with the Leafs, with a save percentage of .919 and a goals against average of 2.33. In comparison, Hart had a .907 save percentage and a 2.94 goals against average.

So, why would the Leafs consider this trade proposal?
Despite being on a less successful team, Hart is one of the few NHL goalies who can single-handedly impact a series, similar to Sergei Bobrovsky or Andrei Vasilevskiy.
Looking at it from a financial perspective, Hart's salary of under $4 million for the next season is appealing to the Leafs, especially considering that Samsonov would likely demand a higher salary.
