Reimer expects to be back as the #1 Goal Tender.

TORONTO – Spending much of his offseason in the lush province of British Columbia, James Reimer has heard the odd Roberto Luongo rumour.

The chatter means little to the 24-year-old Leafs goaltender.

Refreshed and finally healthy, an upbeat Reimer is intent on reclaiming the starting job in Toronto, anxious to erase the memories of an injury-stained second season.

"That's the goal," Reimer told in a telephone conversation from Toronto. "That's the goal ever since you're three years old, whether you had a great year or a tough year is to go in there and prove that you're the starter. That's what I wanted to do last year and that's what I want to do again this year coming into camp.

"I want to come in and show that I can be the starter and that they need to look nowhere else."
