yeah, it was a silly (and petty) remark

however, you'd think it might give some fans perspective ... ie how fair is it to say:
"Reimer in the most important game of his career let in 5 with an .857 sv%." ?
That makes him a big choker, right?

fyi the answer is of course not ...and whoever acquires Luo is going to get a top 10, arguably top 5 keeper for 3-4 years, then likely a step down from that for 3, then a 1.7M caphit for 2-3 years once he retires ... what an albatross that is...

but yeah lets all get on the cousin Dregs' train and deride him as a buyout-only candidate. Certainly fits the prevailing Leaf-Oil narrative, anyway...
