Leafs' Reimer: Will Compete For Starting Role

News: James Reimer was happy to re-sign in Toronto after being told during negotiations that there was a "definite opportunity" to regain his starting role, according to Toronto's Sportsnet590 The FAN.
Analysis: Optimus Reims told the station on Monday morning that management will give him a chance to win the starter's job. This comes as a surprise to us, especially given how Jonathan Bernier performed last season. Perhaps this comes down to semantics and the exact definition of opportunity. His contract is still tradeable, although the Buds don't have much of a backup plan in place to replace him. Stay tuned.

Leafs Agree To Two-Year Deal With Reimer

News: James Reimer agreed to a two-year, $4.6 million deal with Toronto on Friday, Toronto Sun writer Rob Longley reports.
Analysis: After posting a 19-8-5 record in 2012 to go along with a GAA of 2.46, James Reimer struggled last year, finishing with a GAA of 3.29 and a record of 12-16-1. The Leafs are banking on him returning to the form he showed in the three years before last, in which case he would be a useful backup to Jonathan Bernier.

Leafs' Reimer Files For Arbitration

News: James Reimer has filed for salary arbitration, reports Sportsnet360.
Analysis: He's coming off a three-year, $1.8 million deal and he's due a raise, regardless of what Leafs' fans think. It's clear he wants a one-year deal -- he can become a unrestricted free agent next summer -- while it will behoove the club to try to ink him to a team-friendly two- or three-year contract. James Reimer wants out of Hogtown, but we fully expect him to be at camp in September.

Leafs' Reimer On The Move?

News: James Reimer is thought to be looking to be traded by the Leafs, the Star reports.
Analysis: While the report relays that no trade is imminent, the continued presence of Jonathan Bernier presents a scenario in which a change of scenery might benefit James Reimer, who finished the 2013-14 season with a 3.29 GAA in 36 games.

Leafs' Reimer: Strong In Loss To Sens, 36 Saves

News: James Reimer was outstanding in Saturday's 1-0 loss to Ottawa. He made 36 saves and the only goal he surrendered came on the power play on a near perfect shot.
Analysis: It was nice to see him focused and energized between the pipes in what might be his last game in blue and white. He's a restricted free agent this offseason and there's no doubt he wants out. He may be traded before draft day.

Leafs' Reimer In Net Saturday

News: James Reimer will be in goal for the Maple Leafs on Saturday, Paul Hendrick of Leafs TV reports.
Analysis: James Reimer is coming off a good start on Tuesday, giving up two goals on 33 shots. However, the team lost that game and was eliminated from the playoffs. Reimer will look to finish the season on a strong note in Ottawa on Saturday.

James Reimer

Reimer To Back Up For Leafs On Thursday

News: Drew MacIntyre, not James Reimer, will get the start Thursday in Florida.
Analysis: It's more about rewarding MacIntyre for a strong AHL season than a condemnation of James Reimer. But it's not lost on anyone that the Leafs have gone 10 consecutive games without a win with Reimer as the starter.

Reimer Stops 31, But Leafs Get Eliminated

News: James Reimer made a very fine 31 saves on 33 shots Tuesday against the Lightning, but was stuck with a loss.
Analysis: Unfortunately for James Reimer and the Leafs, the loss eliminated them from playoff contention. One has to wonder whether the Leafs will overhaul their roster in the offseason after collapsing down the stretch this year; it seems possible that Reimer, a restricted free agent, could wear a different jersey next season.

Leafs Stick With Reimer On Tuesday

News: James Reimer is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Lightning, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Analysis: James Reimer, who is 2-8-0 with a 4.27 GAA over his past 12 games, will try to help the Leafs get back on a winning track Tuesday. After all, the team's playoff hopes are amazingly still alive with three regular-season contests remaining.

Leafs' Reimer: 37 Saves In Loss

News: James Reimer made 37 saves in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Jets.
Analysis: He played well, but his mates were flat, particularly after the first period. He'll ride out the season as the Leafs' starter.

Reimer Carrying Load For Maple Leafs

News: James Reimer will start Saturday against the Jets, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Analysis: As expected, with regular starter Jonathan Bernier to miss at least three weeks with an MCL injury, James Reimer will shoulder the load for the Leafs down the stretch as they try to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.

Leafs' Reimer Handed Starter's Reins

News: James Reimer will assume the reins as starter now that Jonathan Bernier will be out of action for at least three weeks.
Analysis: Berner suffered an MCL injury (knee) and needs rest and rehab. This will be a test of James Reimer's psyche more than his ability, as he has struggled with the mental side of the game. Still, you now own a goalie who'll get you a lot more starts and that can be gold at this time of the season. Wait a game before activating him -- we really want to see how he responds to the pressure.

Leafs' Reimer Enters Game For Injured Bernier

News: James Reimer relieved injured starter Jonathan Bernier in the third period of Thursday's game. He made 10 saves and allowed one goal.
Analysis: The goal allowed the Bruins to tie, but he ended up with the win in OT. Bernier has been sent for an MRI, so Optimus Reims is likely headed for the net the next time the Leafs play.

Maple Leafs' Reimer Pulled Against Devils

News: James Reimer made seven saves on 10 shots before getting pulled after 21:50 against the Devils on Sunday. He took the loss.
Analysis: Due to an injury to Jonathan Bernier, James Reimer has started five straight games. He's lost all five, and let in at least three goals in all of those games. Even with Bernier injured, Reimer may not be able to keep the starting job.

James Reimer

Leafs Stick With Reimer

News: James Reimer will start Sunday's game against the Devils, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Analysis: It will mark the fifth straight start for James Reimer, who will look to bounce back from Saturday's 4-3 loss to Montreal.

Leafs' Reimer: 32 Saves In Loss

News: James Reimer made 32 saves in Saturday's 4-3 loss to Montreal.
Analysis: He'd like the winner back -- a short-side goal by Tomas Plekanec that found net from a seriously harsh angle. But otherwise, he played a solid game, although his starting time may be done now that Jonathan Bernier is on the verge of a return.

Leafs Start Reimer On Saturday

News: James Reimer will be in net for the Leafs when they face Montreal on Saturday, TSN's Mark Masters reports.
Analysis: With Jonathan Bernier still nursing an injury, James Reimer will get the nod for Saturday's tilt with the Habs. Reimer has allowed 17 goals in his last five games and is currently 11-11-1 with a 3.29 GAA and .910 save percentage.

Reimer Makes 25 Saves In Leafs' Loss

News: James Reimer made 25 stops in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to Tampa Bay.
Analysis: The poor guy is rusty, so it's little surprise the first shot of the game snuck through him within the first minute of play. The crowd was hard on him -- they gave him the Bronx cheers whenever he made a save. It's unfortunate -- the guy has talent and has shown it in seasons past.

Leafs Will Start Reimer On Wednesday

News: James Reimer will be in the crease Wednesday vs. the Lightning, David Alter of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.
Analysis: He'll draw his third straight start for the Maple Leafs, with Jonathan Bernier still ailing.

Leafs Could Stick With Reimer On Wednesday

News: James Reimer appears to be on track to start Wednesday's game against the Lightning, according to TSN's Mark Masters.
Analysis: Based on the Leafs' optional morning skate, it looks like James Reimer, who dropped his second decision in a row (to the Wings) on Tuesday, is now on track to make starts on back-to days for the first time since the playoffs last season.

Leafs' Reimer: 28 Saves In Loss

News: James Reimer made 28 saves in a 3-2 loss to Detroit on Tuesday night.
Analysis: He was OK, but not stellar and that's what the Buds need in net. Then again, he hasn't seen much ice time of late, so he may just need a bit more action to reestablish a groove.

James Reimer

Leafs Go With Reimer On Tuesday

News: James Reimer will be in the crease Tuesday vs. the Red Wings, Jonas Siegel of TSN Radio 1050 reports.
Analysis: James Reimer earns his second consecutive start in place of the injured Jonathan Bernier (groin), who figures to miss the next couple of games for Toronto. Bernier's absence makes Reimer a good short-term roster addition in deeper leagues, but counting on him for reliable numbers could prove difficult. A terrible Leafs defense should offer him plenty of save opportunities, but Reimer has an ugly 3.22 GAA in his 28 appearances on the season.

Maple Leafs' Reimer Lets In Three In Loss

News: James Reimer made 29 saves on 32 shots in a loss to the Capitals on Sunday.
Analysis: James Reimer has played more recently, in part due to an injury to Jonathan Bernier, but his play, and Toronto's defense, have not improved. While he has a serviceable .913 save percentage, his 3.22 GAA is quite poor.

James Reimer

Leafs' Reimer Probable To Start Tuesday

News: James Reimer is the probable starter for Tuesday's game against the Red Wings, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.
Analysis: Coach Randy Carlyle wouldn't commit to James Reimer as Tuesday's starter, but he indicated Reimer will probably be the choice. The 26-year-old allowed three goals on 32 shots in a loss to the Capitals on Sunday.

James Reimer

Leafs Start Reimer On Sunday

News: James Reimer will be in net for the Leafs when they face the Capitals on Sunday, Chris Johnston of Rodgers Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: James Reimer will be seeing the majority of work between the pipes while Jonathan Bernier is sidelined. He is 11-8-1 this season with a 3.23 GAA and .914 save percentage.
