Good post!
My biggest concern is that the Leafs will soon be facing a goalie controversy. When you have two stud number ones like Reimer and the Monster.....errr Scrivens and there's only one net how do you keep both happy. You'd have to think it's getting uncomfortable in the dressing room with both Reimer and Scrivens wanting to be number one. Mind you, it's a good problem to have! Cheers!

Nah Schneider has actually looked really good this year. The first game diluted his numbers and questioned him for it. But if you have watched all the games you would know what I am saying. Luongo has looked really good too! Canucks forwards have a major injury and are still rusty from not playing during lockout. Same can be said about the defence.

Now that simply is not accurate. Any of the top tier would have kept Toronto alive. Lundqvist and Luongo have dragged piss poor New York and Vancouver squads straight into the playoffs. The difference between a top tier goaltender is they steal games and are a source of rally. Reimer does neither.

Fun fact: Anderson and Luongo are supporting a .967 and .938 save percentage respectively. One guess who they spent the summer training with.

LOL, when? Reimer's best season pales in comparison to Schneider's. Reimer was given the #1 reigns last season and fell flat on his face. I guess your retort to this is that after 4 games this season Schneider has had two great games and two poor ones so I guess that's a big enough sample size to conclude he's a poor option as a #1.

Leafs have 7 games of moderate success and all of a sudden they're the best thing since sliced bread to their fans. Unbelievable. Didn't the Leafs have a good first half last season only to completely bomb?

Don't need to debate reimer's qualities in this thread. His own GM is looking for an upgrade. Fanboy opinion is moot.

good thing about a shorten season is the leafs only have to be good for 30-40 games

reimer's better than schneider? reimer have proven to be an effective #1? lol, i totally understand if the leafs don't want luongo, but that is just delusional haha

Deal.

As per your own rules. Luongo is now a top three goaltender.

This is the post that needs repeating so far. Well done.


- Burke is not going to get fired, even if they don't make the playoffs. Fast forward, gets canned before the season even begins.

- Connolly for Tanev because VAN "needs" a 2nd line C (attributing this label to Connolly of course). Get's waived and not picked up.

- Backups depreciate in value. Luongo starts 3 games, SNET says his value increases as a result (what dolts, his value doesn't change either way, really. He is a known quantity around the league).

- VAN won't carry both goalies into the season. Gillis carries both into the season.

- Reimer as good as Schneider. Most hockey evaluators worth their salt say Schneider. Goalie Guild gives VAN and A+, gives TOR a D for goaltending.

- Look who's got a better save % between Reimer and Schneider. 7 game sample. Drawing conclusions suspect.

- Goalies controversy? AV flipping a coin in the scrum with a good chuckle. Obviously management doesn't think so.


Some posters just really need to think about what they are saying, or have said, before going on. Again and again being proven wrong, and no change from them.

Trade talk aside, count me among those that's happy just to see Luongo doing well.

Now that Selanne and Giguere have their rings, there isn't a single player I'd like to see win a Stanley Cup more than Roberto, and I don't care what uniform he's wearing when it happens, but I do care that he starts in such case.

And, yes, I'm aware that Iginla and Thornton are also without a Stanley Cup.

Actually I think it was his future (contract/age) that most Leaf fans were concerned about especially if solid assets were going.

Well i agree the idea seems silly but I think the thought was based on if Connolly regained his form he could really help the Nucks with their injuries.

Right now Luo is worth a million times more to Van than he is to other clubs, even if his value were to rise I still don't see it near what Gillis wants.

I know this was said and I personally diss agreed. So far it looks like it was a great move not trading Luo.

Yeah well its HF lol, If I were to take a stab at the logic behind it I would say Reimer 2nd half of 10-11 was playing around the same level as Schneider last year but as of now its common sense who is worth more.

As for that issue lets wait until both are playing well and see.

The problem Reimer had with Allaire is that Allaire tried to completly overhaul everything Reimer did. The 2 you listed play an Allaire style game, Reimer does not. Allaire preaches deep in the net, take the bottom of the net away style of goaltending. Reimer is more of an athletic style of goalie, tough to change everything you know on the fly.

Leafs fans are so good at making excuses but I can't blame them because for the past 8 years all they've heard are excuses from their management and coaching staffs.

Leafs are getting points right now that's all that matters and Luongo is the Canucks best goalie. I would think this trade possibility is dead atm. I see more suspect goals going in on the Leafs than any other team but it must be the goalie coach or an injury or the weather or something, always an excuse. If you think Reimer can lead you to the playoffs we'll all be watching him try!

You won't find very many Leaf fans who think we are playoff caliber, myself included. You won't find many "sane" Leaf fans that think Reimer is better than either Schnieder or Luongo; myself included. We are just happy to see the kids performing well and getting a few wins, not sure why that makes us wrong. We don't need excuses....we know what our team is.

Just keep getting points you never know. Winning without Lupul Mccarthur, Gardiner while giving up a softie per game and getting nothing from Kessel... pretty impressive. With good goaltending I think it could be a playoff team, maybe Reimer will be good enough who knows. At least Kadri has been good and Frattin has been huge in the last two games.
