Colborne has no confidence or compete level. He has good size and decent skill and can't put it together. Albeit he is still young. If he had Ashton's desire to make an impact he would've cracked the lineup imo

Bunch of guys on waivers right now, Liles being one of them. Hopefully someone claims him (Calgary?), it would be better for the leafs and Liles personally.

I agree with it actually...simply comes down to numbers and Reimer has a good history playing in Montreal so i'd go with him
Bernier will get the back end of the back to back in Philly...he'll get his chance to earn his stripes in a VERY tough building

Honestly don't think there's a clear #1 yet...and imho that's a bonus for the Buds...i'd let them battle/push each other for awhile yet
I'll wager you'll see a 60/40 ratio by season's end...who gets the 60 is up for grabs...either way, you should have 2 healthy/hungry goalies ready for post season play...if they make the playoffs

We've had this goalie swapping for long enough, 2 more guys battling it out is a fuckin joke, get a clear number one already.

Reimer played well in pre-season.... he played well last year.... Why wouldn't he get the start? He is a very good goalie.

I don't mind that he got the start.

Friedman, Dregor etc. reporting Kessel and Leafs have an extention worked out, could be announced tomorrow morning. Probably 8 mil AAV.

Agreed. One guy or the other.

I get the whole competition thing of having two good goalies but I prefer having a go to guy in net with the other goalie playing 20-35 % of the time.

Because that's all he is for now a "big name".

I'm assuming the people that don't like this move are casual fans or on the Bernier Hype Train.

Bernier's NHL Career

62 gp, 29W, 20L, 6 OT, 6 shutouts, .912 SV %, 2.36 GAA

^ all that with a stanley cup winning defense in front of him

Reimer's NHL Career

104GP, 53W, 32L, 14 OT, 10 Shutouts, .915 SV%, 2.71 GAA

In front of shit for the couple of years, than a fringe playoff team last season

19-8 last season with a .924 SV %, %.923 in the playoffs against a team that went to the finals.

You have to show Reimer some sort of loyalty.The way the leafs were out shot last season, there's no way they would make the playoffs if it wasn't for him, same thing with going 7 games, he played great.

You can't just give Bernier the starting job, he hasn't done shit to earn it. He's played 1 playoff game that he didn't even start. It appears from preseason that he's better with the glove, at handling the puck and controlling rebounds than Reimer but Reimer just finds a way to make big saves and win. I'm not sure who'll end up with the #1 job but it'll probably be a 65-35 split (53-29) or around there.

Fuck yeah

Kessel's rumoured Extension 8 years 64 million

edit: the term is confirmed the money is not. Leafs also want Phaneuf back willing to give another 6.5 a year type contract

damn didn't realize Stonezz already mentioned it

I'm fine with Reimer getting the start too.... from the get go i didn't really get why they brought Bernier in, but whatever. Looks like we have two good goalies not a bad problem to i have i suppose.

fact is that you have a very healthy competition going on between your 2 goaltenders
as a goalie coach, i'm telling the rest of my staff to dangle the proverbial carrot in front of both of them..let them decide over the course of the year (disregarding injuries) who retains the number 1 spot

it's a win win situation for the club
