He's turning 27 and you don't get many chances when you crap the bed this badly on your third start of the season.

It is/was up to him to prove himself every game. He's proved something tonight!

I don't think it's a stretch to say this could have been an easy win if we had true #1 in the net.

too early to make a judgement on either.

All signs point to Reimer so far. Scrivens has looked shaky in all three of his starts.

Don't go throwing Scrivens under the bus after one bad game. We just went through this with Schneider's season opener. It's one game.

I stand by Ben Scrivens. One bad game does not erase what he's accomplished so far.

i stopped pretending after last years boston game.

can we stop pretending we dont need a legit goalie? or are we gonna live in a fantasy world of puppy dogs, marshmellows and grandmothers for the rest of the season?

I don't understand how we expect either of these goalies to succeed in the NHL without a glove hand. Teams already know where to shoot on these guys and it's a glaring weakness. It won't work in the NHL when there are snipes who can put a nail into a tree with their shots. We're not going to be able to win games with goalies who have this bad of a glaring weakness.

Scrivens is a joke of an NHL goalie. Looked bad in the W against Montreal, looked shaky against Buffalo, and looked downright disgusting tonight. Worst part is he was smiling on the bench after being pulled. GTFO here!

Scriven's plan all along has been revealed

One game can determine an entire hockey career?! Seems we have many aspiring actors and actresses here on this board.

I personally think Reimers athletic ability is quite a bit higher than Scrivens and I have faith that he's going to right the ship but if he doesn't I wonder if Bishop can be had for a second rouder. If I remember right that's what Ottawa gave up to get him

If the performances are extremes highs and lows, its going to catch up and destroy the teams confidence over the season. Ive seen enough of Scrivens for a while now. Tonight he was horrible. One good game and one bad one isnt good enough. Both goalies are un-proven. I have more hope for Reimer than Scrivens. Scrivens loves to handle the puck and he makes mistakes with it. His glove position is horrible. Letting in weak goals deflates teams.

The guy is a 27 year old minor league goalie with 15 games to his name. The guy's been spoon fed ice time and he coughed it all up.

This has been his first very bad performance in the NHL. His age has nothing to do with it, because you full well know goalies take a very long time to come into their own. Scrivens may very well not be the answer, but to claim after one game his career is over is not only dramatic, but not realistic. You're smarter than that Stephen' if youve watched hockey for as long as you claim to have.

I was really hoping Scrivens/Reimer would play well and throw some cold water on the Luongo talk. So much for that idea.

Actually, he's been blown out 3 times in 15 games and won 5 of his 15 appearances.

He was lucky to have been given the ball to run with with 3 starts out of the first four games, but he's lost 3 of them and completely wet the bed. And he's turning 27.

I don't think his future looks particularly bright.
