Because the Leafs have a couple unproven goalies with some ok numbers in a shortened season.

Andrew Raycroft and JS Aubin had good numbers for stretches too

While Reimer has maybe stolen a few games here and there, Luongo has been doing it for his entire career. Whether it's been in NYI, FLA or VAN. I can't wait for leafs to lose another 6 in a row and then start freaking out again.

Be honest Leaf fans. Are you comfortable with (Maybe) going into the playoffs with Reimer as your starter? Or a proven goalie like Luongo that can take you past round one (all the way to the finals)?


In before an ignorant fan says "YEAH A PROVEN CHOKE ARTIST"
Who said Reimer was a vezina / gold medal / franchise goaltender and why are you trying to get rid of him so badly? Oh right, because he's been passed up by someone who hasn't done any of those accomplishments either.

I'd prefer to stay away from Luongo until at least the off-season. Reimer has played well and deserves a chance to get this team to the post season. Not to mention, depending on what Vancouver might ask for, I don't want to mess with the team's chemistry.

Who said that I'm trying to get rid of Luongo? I'm content with him. A leafs fan made this thread. You just proved my point. Reimer isn't a Vezina, Gold Medal winning franchise goalie and he probably wont even be.

I really do think that something along the lines of Grabo for Luongo makes sense, but do not see it happening before the trade deadline

Reimers career numbers are slightly above average. He's not just on a hot streak. hes slowly becoming a solid NHL goalie. Things can still change and he can regress or improve, but his career arc looks good. He's only 25 ffs

James Reimer is growing into a number one at a great cap hit. Why would the Leafs trade for Roberto and his massive cap hit when he's just starting to hit his stride?

Vancouver needs to find another suitor IMO. I'm sure Dave Nonis is not interested, otherwise the leak would never have happened.

i think the leafs should stay with what they got, and visit the possibility of Lu in the off season. Like what has been said already, the Reimer/Scrivens Duo has actually been impressive, and competing with each other every night for the next game, which is a great thing.

Toronto is a goalie graveyard. If Loungo could buck the trend in Van, he could in Toronto too.

I think Reimer is better than Luongo right now..

Most I'd give for him is Tim Connolly. It would make sense since Vancouver need a center.

Then keep him and send Van Scivens and Bozo or Grabo

Not sure how to post a tweet on here but that stuff above is Luongo hinting he may be gone soon.

We were never in a playoff position with any of those goalies, so not sure what you're implying.

And I don't remember saying Luongo would do poorly in TO. I said I am happy/comfortable with Reims

Maybe you should try watching a game or two this year. James Reimer has been playing fabulous hockey and is one of the main reasons why the Leafs are in a playoff position.

No need for Roberto at this time. He has a warm spot on the Vancouver bench at the moment, let him stay there.

Well there's your problem right there. You're not much of a judge of goalie talent.

Not really, Reimer has been legitimately good for the Leafs. Only stretch he wasn't good was when he came back from the concussion last year. He is still only 24 and putting up above average league numbers despite some horrible defense in front of him. He was the Leafs best player before he went down with an injury this season. Just because he is young and "unproven" doesn't mean he is not good.

Also, if Reimer .916 is just "ok", then what do you call Loungo .904 save % this year?

I can't believe this keeps coming up. Leafs goalies are perfectly fine but they clearly need some defense. I mean, Leafs have had Holzer and Kostka playing on the top pair with Dion for most of the season and while Reimer and Scrivens have been able to bail them out for most of the season, it's hard to keep that up.

No significant roster assets like Bozak or Grabo.

The most Toronto would pay is someone like Joe Colborne and a third or fourth round pick.

Yeah, that sub .900 save percentage is just confidence inspiring, isn't it? And this is coming off a year in which he was pulled in the first round of the playoffs.

Legendary, that Roberto!

This is not true, and I really like Reimer. Reimer has great potential. Luongo has consistently proven he is a starter in this league

Reimer is better than people give him credit for
Luongo is probably worth not nearly as much as Canucks fans hope

but that comment is just lol

You guys haven't had a decent goalie in years. You wouldn't recognize one if it hit you over the head.
Of course you can probably trade Reimer in the summer for Quick or Rinne because he has a better save % in this shortened season.
