The series winning goal was a result of a puck dropping at Reimer's feet glove hand side, that turned into a mad rebound scramble and Bergeron's eventual OT winner. Catching that puck cleanly and freezing the play could have resulted in a different series outcome alone.

If internet poster(s) can recognize Reimer's rebound control, puck catching and stick-handling issues, than I'm fairly certain Leafs management is 10 steps ahead and fully aware of Reimer's strengths and weaknesses, and thus exploring all options available including Bernier.

I'm a big Reimer fan, but I see no problem adding Bernier if the price is right and makes sense.
