Leafs have 7 games of moderate success and all of a sudden they're the best thing since sliced bread to their fans. Unbelievable. Didn't the Leafs have a good first half last season only to completely bomb?
Reimer's best season saw him post a .920 sv% as a total rookie in a 1/2 season as the #1 goaltender. Schneider has NEVER been a #1 goaltender for any appreciable amount of time.

I missed the 3rd period so I can't comment on that but overall I'm disappointed. Schneider is by far a better goalie as we speak.
Allaire was / is the right coach for Reimer. It's that he has a horrible fit for Gustavsson that caused him to get into a rift with the rest of the organization. No question he needs to be better than he has been so far this year, but not substantially.
