He makes the saves he should make, and occasionally makes spectacular saves. He has some weaknesses but there's no goalie in the league who doesn't.

The ability to be solid game in and game out year after year, and stay healthy. Reimer hasn't been able to stay healthy.
Leafs would be dust if Reimer hadn't stepped up this year. He gives them a chance to win, which is really all you want from a goalie.
He's a terrible goalie and just like their shooting %.. it will all average back to a normal level. Leafs are in for a rude awakening soon.
Which is what is happening to us. Statistically we were scoring the first goal more often than not. That is starting to balance out and we're a completely different hockey team.
