I also think that a couple posters on the first page are being just a tad harsh. Granted, Gustavsson has had some pretty ****** performances this season, but he has also had some pretty good performances as well. His probelms this season were clearly a lack of consistency combined with being repeatedly hung out to dry by the rest of the team far too often. It wouldn't surprise me if Gustavsson's head had been messed with by Allaire just as badly as Reimer's head has been messed with. That alone could easily screw up any relatively young and inexperienced goaltender.

Don't get me wrong here; I DON'T want Gustavsson re-signed. I'm merely saying that he's not even close to being "****ing putrid", as a previous poster has claimed.
Good post. Completely agree with everything.

Reimer was having success playing Allaires systems last year, I don't think Alliaire is the problem. It's likely a combination of sophomore slump and concussion (that he may have been still dealing with) that's factored into his play this year. Not the only 1st year goaltender to have him struggle and his stats go down the next year. I'm not sure if he'll rebound but I don't think he's as bad as he's shown this season. Guys' like Price, Quick, etc went through the same thing.

I expect a well earned L for the tank tonight. Flyers always dominate the Leafs.

Always easier to win an argument if you make it up.

I'm pretty sure the last time someone thought Reimer was the Messiah, it was last season.

Still your made up argument proves what I've been saying all along.
Gus at his best has been marginally better than Reimer at his worst.

It is too bad though because I think Gus seems like a really good guy, and he has gone through a lot at a young age. I still think he is a victim of circumstance. He should have had a two way deal and started off in the AHL instead of being forced to try to solve the Toskala problem. He was rushed into too much pressure too soon. I don't disagree that he might do much better elsewhere. I doubt he will ever be a top 10 goalie or anything, but I think he would benefit from a different (and smaller) market.

Last thing on the goalie situation...more and more I think a veteran has to come via trade. I'm just not very excited by the UFA's available, and I think Burke will be desperate to make a big splash with a big name. Otherwise we all better pray Reimer IS the messiah.

I'm expecting them to inexplicably win this game somehow.

I hope if Burke doesn't re-sign him that he goes to a team where he has a stellar season and he shuts us out every meeting just to prove a point to posters like you.

Gus is coming back whether you like it or not. Burke said repeatedly after January that Gus saved the season after Reimer went down. I would think that is a vote of approval from management. Burke is going to experiment again with an unexperienced goalie tandem, without having them first play behind a veteran.

I can't wait for these last 5 games to be over. We honestly have no chance against Philly tonight without icing a complete healthy team. Plus Philly is playing for something. We don't need to play for what we are going for.
Thats not happening. Burke's not going into next season with the same duo, and I see it as highly unlikely Reimer gets dealt.
