Regardless of if Reimer is #1 whenever hockey begins or not, there needs to be a veteran to provide stability and mentoring.

It is so strange when people think that aquiring Luongo is somehow giving up on Remier. Those people might want to have a chat with Cory Schneider.
However Luongo or not, it could be a bad situation for Reimer if there is no veteran goalie in the mix, both in the short term, and more importantly in the long term.
IMHO.
Excellent post. Should this veteran goalie be the number 1, or should he simply afford Reimer a "safety net"?
