Was very steady, really good rebound control and his glove hand was refreshing for a change. We lost despite his contribution.

Still not sold, but...

I can get pretty down on Reimer's weaknesses but he played a great game last night.

Reimer to give up 2 or less goals through 60 mins tomorrow.

If he loses, it's because of lack of goal support.

The Reimer momentum train will grow.

So despite giving up 5 goals, Reimer is still being praised for his efforts? I didn't have an opportunity to watch the game so this is good to hear. Having said that, he has a very calculated movement about him, almost like video game like. Something very confident about his positioning, unlike Scriven's who looks more confused and less robotic. Robotic in the case of a positional goalie, IMO is a good thing.

I'm not sold.

He's definitely sounded out his game quite a bit - looks a lot more comfortable in net than he did at any point last year.

But I'm just not sold that this is going to be the guy that takes us forward. Which sucks, because I want him to be - he seems like one of the nicest teammates to have around the league

That's this town for ya.

Our goalie who lets in 5 goals is a god but our elite sniper has a slow start and should be run out of town.

This stupid city don't deserve a Stanley cup with **** like this going on.

Are you stupid or something? Or did you just not watch the game, or check the boxscore / read the recap? Reimer let in 4 (FOUR) goals on I believe it was 42 shots.

Although I agree with you about the idiotic garbage that Cox spewed about wanting to trade Kessel. The guy has done everything but score, and has been having bad puck luck lately.

Ya I'm stupid.
YOu better check your self bub.

I Dont care.

5 goals 4 goals don't matter. You guys are ready to make him a god but KEssel should be traded.
Reimer hasn't done ****.

Kessel has some 30 goal seasons under his belt.

Reimer is a above average backup at this point. Same catagory as Dubnyk. Both though are thrust into starting roles. Would rather have Reimer backing up Giggy. Both see roughly 25% of all shots however Giggy is slightly better as he's had more years to perfect this questionable method of goaltending. Oddly enough Loungo is top of the class when it comes to this style.

I like Kessel and want him to stay - he's the best player on the leafs right now.

Reimer high glove

Two goals tonight scored on Reimer were high glove, and it seems like a lot of players always try to shoot there

Is this the only thing stopping Reimer from being a star goalie?

Still fail to understand why its so difficult for him to improve his glove.. Defense lets him down quite a bit as well.

Reimer actually has a good glove, he always has. It's his style that got him in trouble last year.

The two goals that were high glove last game weren't going to be stopped by any top notch glove IMHO. One was a point blank shot after a scramble(On the PP). The second goal was a semi break, back hand...in tight lol.

If you want to point out goals allowed that proves he has a weak hand, using the goals from tonight is unfair towards him.

Reimer doesn't have a weak glove. Hes going to be naturally weaker upstairs because he plays on his knees, so players target his ears.

Last goal on Buf high over the shoulder, I think it's a weak spot for all big butterfly goalies when their down on the ice, no where else to go but high, but his five hole a real weak point. Keep your stick on the ice! I've heard that since I was 6 years old.

That shot went under millers arm actually. He is not flawless either i suppose. Reimer is getting on his game nicely,and looks great to me. That was a battled out win last night. The amount of traffic,and screens he dealt with against the Rangers,and Sabres has to be fixed by our defense.

Fraser is awsome clearing guys out with force cleanly/ un-penalized.

Reimer doesn't have a weak glove. It's not elite but it's not as bad as people think.

You guys have to stop listening to Glenn ****ing Healy.

Many goaltenders have a "weak" glove. Take the time to listen to their scouting report, you'll see that not many will have a strong glove.

Well you gotta aim somewhere.

Even if his glove is great, players shoot high on butterly goalies. That's the whole point of playing the butterfly. Take away the bottom of the net, make them go upstairs.
