In a regrettable trade that took place in 2006, the Toronto Maple Leafs made the decision to exchange promising goaltender Tuukka Rask for Andrew Raycroft.

Unfortunately for the Leafs, this move turned out to be a significant misstep. Raycroft's time with the team was short-lived, lasting just two seasons before he was placed on waivers and ultimately bought out.
Meanwhile, Rask went on to achieve extraordinary success with the Boston Bruins. He became an NHL All-Star, won the prestigious Vezina Trophy awarded to the league's top goaltender, and played an instrumental role in the Bruins' Stanley Cup victory. In addition, Rask holds franchise records for the most games played and most wins as a goaltender in Bruins history.
This trade serves as a reminder of the Leafs' missed opportunity, as Rask's remarkable career accomplishments overshadowed the brief tenure of Raycroft, leaving Leafs fans to ponder what could have been.
