OK, let's have some fun here...
So, all of a sudden Reims is injured and it looks he might be out for a while...for most of the rest of the season, or longer if it's an MCL tear or ACL...just as Leafs Nation is intoxicated with the prospect of a winning season.
As panic sets in, they start to look desperately for a starting NHL goaltender, any bona fide starter, to keep their Cup hopes alive, and settle on someone with big-league skill, despite his so-so stats and an unjustifiably hefty contract? This is the year for the Leafs, it is their destiny. They know it'll cost them big-time, but they can't wait any longer.
Follow my drift?
Hint: It's not Luongo.
