I don't care where the Leafs finish this year as long as Reimer is doing good.

People do realize that hoping for tanking is essentially hoping that Reimer fails right?

If Reimer fails, we're back at square one in terms of goaltending and #1C.

Reimer continues his play and we have our future goalie and dont have to worry about it.

Plenty of good players picked outside of the top 10. If the Leafs are out of contention, then it's time to sell and finish as low as possible.

Plus, why would Corey Perry/any top UFA for example come to the Leafs if he would be under pressure to help this team make the playoffs? Make the playoffs, get that monkey off our back and UFA's will be more inclined to come.
