For the handful of games left, I thought we’d stick to one thread then get the playoffs rolling.
I tend to think of goalies as being somewhat apart from their teams, and so can respect them even though I loathe/mock everyone else. My comments:
Plagiarizing from someone on HI/O: “If Glenn Healy is going to fellate James Reimer on air, the CBC should at least have an R rating for Hockey Night in Canada!”
I think Reimer is as much a saviour as Gustavsson was for the Leafs, I also think the organization can - and will - destroy him in the same way. They’d be better goalies in another organization (yes, the Habs are just as guilty of this as anyone!) The nickname Optimus Reim cracks me up, and the logo he’s added to his mask is awesome.
I like that the Leafs are still in the race for 9th place. It gives me the satisfaction of pointing and laughing, as well as knowing that Boston won’t get much better, statistically speaking. Keep it up, Burkie!
