Burke said he had a deal for Reimer, I'd dump that contract and sign Gus as a backup, bring in an experienced starter. Unless Gus won't stay, the fact he is playing back to back despite a loss tells us all we need about Reimer as a goalie.

I'm a big fan of Gus, but if we keep him... It shouldn't be for a back-up job. Gus plays so much better after a string of games, he has higher potential.... But IMO it's starter or bust for him. I don't think he'd play very good if we played him every 5th or so game.
