47 shots.

2 games.


Can you people be a bit more patient before claiming him to be christ himself? Next week you guys could be licking Reimers foot
Yes thank you Captain Obvious. God forbid anyone critique our new goalie or acknowledge he's looked great SO far. I believe he may have played games prior as well.

47 shots, 470 shots, 4700 shots...doesn't matter. I am a huge fan of Reimer's attitude and character but there is no denying who looks better in net.

Reimer is still a #1 too...but Bernier's better, and I'll say the same thing when Bernier gets pulled in the future (happens to all goalies).

It’s too early in the year to call it one way or another, but Bernier has looked good thus far. He is very technically sound, handles the puck well, and is great at controlling rebounds (something Reimer needs to work on some more). It’ll be interesting to see how the year plays out.

The trade for Bernier could be an even bigger steal for the Leafs than the Lupul/Gardiner trade. This team looks to finally have the goalie it was looking for since Belfour was let go.

That's the second game in a row Bernier has stolen a win for the Leafs. Bernier looks to be the number one goalie and a great one at that.

Maybe in your HF world it was looked at positively. I never used to read HF boards during the JFJ years. I can assure you the rest of the world did not like the trade.

If Bernier gets pulled in the near future, then there won't be anything separating the two goalies this season. So it pretty much comes down to personal preference, nothing else.

I've liked him since I 1st saw him. Belfour was my all time favourite Leaf Goalie and Bernier reminds me of him.

Always knew he'd take the jon from Reimer, you don't bring in a guy and then pay him more money than your current #1 to be a backup, barring injury this was always going to be Bernier's job all he has to do is beat the avs and he's the guy. That said I'd like to see Reimer, VS Nashville

The season has barely even started and you're already planning the parade, and crowing the MVP?
It's way, WAY too early to go either way on this team. Whichever goalie gives us the best chance to win is gonna be the one who is in net, end of story.

Bernier's been awesome, from everything I've seen the sky is clearly the limit for this guy. He's got the skill, the effort, the attitude, everything that's needed to be a starting goalie. The only thing he needs to show is consistency, and if he shows that, he'll become the goalie everyone has projected him to become.

I think he gets Colorado and Nashville at least. Depending on how he plays those 2 will determine when Reimer gets his next start. It could be Saturday against Edmonton, it could be 2 weeks from now against the Blue Jackets. I don't think Randy will wait that long to put him back in, but I think right now Bernier's getting at least this week's starts. After that it's a mix of not letting Reimer sit too long (unless Bernier pulls a SO or 2, he'll get the Canes and/or Wild next week at least) and riding the hot hand.

I am still a huge Reimer fan, but Bernier is definitely making a case. A few more games like that and he won me over. I like Reimer because of how he started from the bottom and made it up in our organization, and is our only good developed goalie for as long as I can remember.

I'm expecting a save percentage of about .932 this year, and 43-45 wins.

As long as Reimer continues to look like hes a deep sea diver swimming in his crease Bernier will continue to be the better option. I fully expect Bernier to take the job and run with it. I wish James Reimer all the best, with his new team next season.

I believe this guy will be a top NHL goalie. He has the fundamentals down to a tee, excellent athleticism and the composure of a veteran. The combination of these factors generally produces top NHL goal tenders.

I still can't believe that save he made on Spezza when the game was tied 4-4.
