Boston Bruins Goalie Linus Ullmark did not hold back his feelings on how he felt about the Toronto Maple Leafs goaltending situation.

In a recent interview on 'Leafs Morning Take', Ullmark had some choice words for the Maple Leafs netminder Ilya Samsonov and his performance in this years NHL playoffs. He stated that Joseph Woll was a better goalie and that the Bruins had a tougher time facing him than they did Samsonov.
"I was surprised that they kept Samsonov for that many games against us in the playoffs because every time we played the Leafs and he (Woll) was in net, it felt like it was more of a challenge," said Ulmark.

In return, Ullmark had some high praise and even a few suggestions/critiques for Joseph Woll on how he can improve on being a better goalie.
"Just watching him, it looked like he was so much more in control of the situations that were thrown at him. As a goalie and I think players as well, they feed off these things. If you see a guy that is flopping around too much or letting out crazy rebounds, feeling like they are always struggling with it then you are going to be on a little bit more of an edge compared to if you have a goaltender that can contain the pucks or put them in areas they are not a threat.

He's like every young goaltender nowadays. He's technically sound. The only thing that might stop him is the mental game. That does not happen over night, it comes down to experience, but he has come a long way in a short time and I think he looks terrific. He looks like a really good goaltender."

Ullmark has been a fan favorite ever since he landed in Boston, but it seems that the team is most likely going to move on from the 30-year-old to free up some cap-space and look to sign Jeremy Swayman to a longer term deal.
