From the Branches: McDavid vs Maple Leafs round 1

The Leafs play the Oilers for the second time this season tonight, and we finally get to see McDavid against them. There will be no Sparks shutout tonight, but the Leafs will take on the Oilers and Connor McDavid. Did you know McDavid was on the Oilers? and that he's back from a broken collarbone? And he was last summers #1 pick? And that the Leafs missed out on that pick by one number? Get ready for that all day! PPP Links, because they're the best.

Morgan Rielly is James Reimer, has played in NHL since 16

Wait. That doesn't sound right. But the picture said... Pobody's nerfect, and that extends to all facts of life. On the ice, teams will let in goals; off the ice, media may not know just which players are... which players. Like here. Morgan Rielmer pic.twitter.com/FRYAeizmLC — Greg Balloch (@GregBalloch) February 10, 2016 That... does not look like James Reimer. Probably because that isn't James Reimer. That's actually Morgan Rielly, who is six years younger and could not have been Dion Phaneuf's teammate since 2010, because he was just 16 years old back then. The label's details, at...

Trade Him or Keep Him: James Reimer

Optimus Reim is up for free agency this summer. Should the Maple Leafs re-sign him, or trade him? James Reimer, Maple Leafs goaltender for the past six seasons is now eligible for unrestricted free agency. Pre-Leafs James Reimer was drafted out of the WHL's Red Deer Rebels in the 4th round, 99th overall at the 2006 NHL entry draft. in the following two seasons in the WHL Reimer played 90 games, with a 34-38-11 record. He had a .914 save% and a 2.70 GAA. Post-Junior he headed to the ECHL, and the Maple Leafs then affiliate the Reading Royals. The Royals were not very good so the Leafs...

From the Branches: What time is the Super Bowl?

There's a big football game today. It should be a great distraction after last night's disaster in Ottawa. So last night sucked. The Leafs looked horrific the whole game. I don't even know what to say. They were so bad they literally made James Reimer cry on the bench!

Ottawa Senators Trounce Toronto Maple Leafs 6-1

Ottawa put in a performance for the ages, cruising to victory over their intra-provincial rivals. This game started with the Ottawa Senators on a downward climb, and the Toronto Maple Leafs on a two-game "winning streak". You wouldn't have known any of this from how the game started. Not even 20 seconds in, a two-on-one with Marc Methot and Zack Smith (yes, those two guys) saw James Reimer bite too hard on shot, allowing Smith to pot it into a near-empty net. Just a couple minutes later, Jean-Gabriel Pageau got out of the penalty box, received a beautiful stretch pass from Erik Karlsson,...

Sens 6, Leafs 1: So, About That...

An unfortunate day as Air Canada makes sure the Leafs' luggage made it to Ottawa, but lost the team. There will be no analysis of this game. Analysis dictates that there's actually any play to break down. How do you break down a game where everyone sucks and is caught napping? Still, the rules dictate we need a recap so here's your recap: 1st Period: -#tbt the 19 seconds in which the Leafs were actually really in this game. -The Leafs allowed as many odd-man rushes as they did shots on goal. -They might have made James Reimer cry human tears, which is bad. -Bozak might be concussed, Sens...

Given that he began the season behind Jonathan Bernier on the depth chart, James Reimer likely didn't expect to reach his 200th career NHL game so quickly.

James Reimer playing his 200th NHL game tonight

Of course, all 200 have been with the Maple Leafs. This won't be the 200th game he's started - it'll be his 181st - but it will be the 200th time James Reimer takes to NHL ice. Originally drafted by the Toronto Maple Leafs 99th overall in the 2006 NHL entry draft - and without many notable names after him (although the Leafs also drafted Leo Komarov 180th overall the same year!) - it's been a wild ride for the 27-year-old. The Leafs are the only organization Reimer has ever known, and as he was acquired in 2006, technically, no other Leaf has been with the organization longer. And it's been...

It's game day again as the Leafs knock the sand from their shoes, put some cream on that sunburn and head to Boston to kick off the march to the trade deadline.

James Reimer, Jonathan Bernier, and the difficulty of evaluating goalies

How can we figure out which Leafs goalie is better when their performance fluctuates so much? There's been a lot of discussion about the goaltending situation for the Toronto Maple Leafs ever since Dave Nonis trade for Jonathan Bernier in June 2013.  Some people, like me, thought that Reimer was good enough to be the Leafs' starting goalie, and that the trade was therefore unnecessary.  Others lacked faith in Reimer and saw Bernier as a potential all-star starter.  Some fans felt their time was better spent arguing about unrelated topics, like whether they'd rather fight one horse-sized...

Panthers overcome uneven first period to blow away Maple Leafs 5-1

Luongo ties Tony Esposito for seventh place all-time with 423rd win The Florida Panthers cruised into the All-Star break on high, beating the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-1 at the BB&T Center to extend their latest winning streak to three games. Five different Cats lit the lamp and goaltender Roberto Luongo made 22 stops to post his 423rd career victory, tying him with Tony Esposito for seventh place on the NHL's all-time list. The Panthers started quickly, firing seven shots on goal before the visiting Buds registered their first. Unfortunately they failed to dent James Reimer and it was Toronto...
