Might be something bigger than the 7th coming back and maybe more than Reimer going to Edm
Reimer seems to be a guy playing at his ceiling right now and maybe even overachieving. His ceiling is always going to be worse than the elite goalies in this league.
leafs havent had a goalie since how long? we had to deal with toskala, monster, and raycroft. we finally get a goalie how is dare i say it respectable and you want to trade him so we can replace him with a young goalie with upside but even more unproven then reimer? also, what makes you think reimer is an upgrade on dubnyk? imo reimer = dubnyk in terms of ability. dubnyk might actually be better considering edmontons defensive situation.
if reimers is "only" able to achieve a 924 save percentage and a 2.46 goals against and its still not good enough for you then you have impossible expectations of what a goalie should provide. im not calling reimer elite by any stretch but at the very least he is a serviceable average to slightly above average starting goalie who is young and cheap and highly likeable.
bottom line, i cant see reimer being moved unless a significant upgrade is brought in to replace him.
