I Love Reimer

Ya. I said it.
I love James Reimer.
No, he may not be the guy to take the Toronto Maple Leafs to the playoffs this season, gut the kid is good. The defence sucks.
Ya, it`s been awhile since I hit the keyboard, and I`m hitting the wife`s keyboard, at that. I apologize for the backwards apostrophes. But, I am watching the game and Reimer is good.
He sucked on the first goal. Granted. But so did the D.
This being the last weekend before my favourite day of the season, the speculation of who will go is running rampant on who will be departing town. So, here is who I think should stay.
Everyone is making a big deal about Jake Gardiner, but if that is what it takes to bring a player the caliber of Rick Nash... I`m sorry, you pull the trigger. When was the last Leaf prospect you saw leave town and develop in to a player of any distinction? Don`t say Brad Boyes. He can score, but I would trade three Brad Boyes` for one Owen Nolan, anyday.
I say you keep Phil Kessel. You keep Dion Phaneuf. You keep Jofrey Lupul and Reimer. John Michael Liles and Cody Franson are tough calls. Everyone else is fair game. Brian Burke should keep his draft picks.
Sorry to burst that bubble.
Also, the Leafs should only trade for Western Conference players. If they could build a team that plays a Western style in the East, then you are talking.
Who should go?
Luke Schenn needs to go. Tyler Bozak needs to go. Mikael Grabovski is not worth $5 million. And, I don`t think there is any question, Ron Wilson needs to go. As soon as possible.
After tonight`s crap show, the Leafs should be sellers on Monday. Come what may.
