I agree that Reimer's been letting in a lot of stinkers lately and I know that I was especially upset at the 3rd goal he let in yesterday. Still I think that would be more of a reason to keep starting Reimer. To let him have a chance to return to his form last year. Yes, playing with Leafs defense and the PK team has done irreparable damage to his confidence
but not playing him for more games would do even more when he's supposedly number one
. I don't know how others feels but imo even with Gustavsson (or Scrivens for that matter) the Leafs still have sad goaltending situation.
Playing Gustavsson is okay for the short term since he's playing fine now but how long will that last? Even if the Leafs make it to the playoffs this year but lose a heartbreaking series because of goaltending-- that feels just as bad as not making the playoffs.
I'm pretty satisfied that Reimer is starting. Reimer needs more chances to show why he's Leafs number one. Leafs will win on Thursday for sure.
