James Reimer: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Is Optimus Reims healthy? The Leafs sure hope so. Last season looked promising until that fateful hit to the head from wee Brian Gionta. Apparently, the injury wasn't really a concussion, but a neck injury. However, it clouded his whole season, literally and figuratively. The haze has apparently cleared this offseason and he's champing at the bit to prove he's worthy of the top job in the Big Smoke. We'll see. General Manager Brian Burke has said he's okay with a Reimer-Ben Scrivens pairing, but he'd previously said his top priority was a starting goalie. Use caution on draft day ... and every day after that. Roberto Luongo rumors just won't go away and the last thing you need is a back-up goalie in your stable.
Reimer enters the season entrenched as the Leafs' top dog. His ascent to that spot was nothing short of miraculous considering he'd never boasted a .920 save percentage in his three years in junior and he spent almost all of the 2008-09 season in the East Coast league. He's big (6-2, 210) and fast, and he demonstrates an unflappable, easy-going demeanor that allows him to shake off bad goals and bad games with ease. Best of all, his mates love playing in front of him and seem to draw energy from every save he makes. Last season's 20 wins should grow to 30 as long as there's no sophomore skid. We don't foresee one but he is only 23 and stranger things have happened to far more touted twinetenders.
Reimer used to be the Leafs' top netminding prospect; that was until they signed Finnish phenom Jussi Rynnas. Reimer is big, plays his angles well and turned a lot of heads last season with a 14-8-2 record, 2.25 goals-against average and .925 save percentage. He and Rynnas will split games with the Marlies; pretty soon, we'll know who's the next one.
Reimer's 16-7 record, 2.85 GAA and .917 save percentage in the ECHL last season catapulted him ahead of Justin Pogge on the depth chart. Pogge is gone and it'll be Reimer and Joey MacDonald splitting time with the AHL Marlies. Keep an eye on him.
