How old is Riemer? 22?

How old is Cory Snieder? 26?

Between the two, who would you rather have in the net for the Leafs?

Would you have wanted Snieder though when he was 22?

Get Luongo and have Riemer develop inot the number 1, just like Snieder.

At this point of their careers, age is just a number.

Experience is more important.

Let's say the Canucks had the exact same team the Leafs have right now, is Cory Schneider able to put up the same exact numbers that will make them their #1 Goalie? I personally think part of the reason for his sucess in Vancouver is having a great team play in front of him.

As for James Reimer during the 10-11 season I think we saw how great can be when healthy because that Leafs team was a lot worse then the Canucks and he almost got them into 8th place in the Eastern Conference after a horrible start to that season.

For me the problem is not about confidence in Reimer as #1 per se.
I simply think it is a crappy way to develop a goalie long term, to make him the number one goalie on the team with the greatest media/fan crush, on a crappy team whose fans are starved for success, and have no real back-up option. Just too much pressure too soon in his career, plain and simple.

Regardless of if Reimer is #1 whenever hockey begins or not, there needs to be a veteran to provide stability and mentoring.

It is so strange when people think that aquiring Luongo is somehow giving up on Remier. Those people might want to have a chat with Cory Schneider.
However Luongo or not, it could be a bad situation for Reimer if there is no veteran goalie in the mix, both in the short term, and more importantly in the long term.
IMHO.

In the 10-11 season Reimer at least had Giguere to mentor him and he always said how much he helped him.

Then in the 11-12 season we saw what happned without a vetern back-up.

Excellent post. Should this veteran goalie be the number 1, or should he simply afford Reimer a "safety net"?

We believe in James...unless we can make a trade for a good starter.

If it's Luo then clearly Reimer is the back up for a season or two. If it's someone else then I guess it would depend on who and maybe their play decides it.

My preference is still Luo but I wouldn't want to give up too much to make it happen. I'm actually pretty ok with giving Reimer another shot otherwise, but not without veteran support/safety net.

We were better, for a larger part of the season?

I think it makes more sense to judge a goalie's game while he's healthy rather than post concussion. That's my logic. I think James will be fine with a fresh start but he has to stay healthy and the team has to play a better game defensively for any goalie to be successful

That's true but don't forget Reimer was injured from mid October - December. In between that time we saw Scrivines start a few games which he deserved based on a few wins, but Gustavsson should have been told during that time he was their #1 Goalie. Then once Reimer came back at times Gustavsson times played like he should have been their #1 Goalie and once Reimer started maybe it did something to Gustavsson's confidence.

I believe in James, I'm just not sure I believe in the James/Ben tandem this season (if there is a season).
