James Reimer is the FUTURE

They call him Optimus Reim. The name definitely suits him. The Maple Leaf rookie goaltender just got his 16th win of the year, along with his 3rd shutout. He has been the one glimmer of hope in the Leafs playoff push. With 8 games remaining in the season sitting 5 points out of the playoffs, the Leafs truly can’t afford to lose any games. I saw the strangest coaching decision happen last week when Ron Wilson opted to play JS Giguere against the Florida Panthers instead of Reimer. Reimer in fact didn’t even dress that game. We lost 3-0 to Florida in a must-win game where we desperately needed those 2 points. Hopefully it doesn’t come back to haunt us. We can only look to the future now, and the final 8 games. GO LEAFS GO

Check out this HUGE save by Reimer followed by the Air Canada Centre chant of REIMER, REIMER, REIMER!

the toronto @mapleleafs – Nothing is Over

Big Game tonight against Philly. We are 4 pts out of the playoffs. Lets go boys!

My Toronto Maple Leaf Experience

Had some nice tickets front row against the glass against the Carolina Hurricanes the other night. Definately made the best of the night, indulged in many $15 beers (ridiculous) and banged on that damn glass any chance I got. Check out the guy at the end who tries to take the stick from the kid, everyone was chirping him haha

Not Gank x being a toronto maple leaf fan


Being a Toronto Maple Leaf fan is the worst. They are the highest grossing team in the NHL and sell out EVERY single game, but still can’t win. Ever. We should have the best team in the NHL; we have the biggest market in the World with the most people who care about the game. But in Toronto the owners don’t care about winning, its all about money. Its the same reason why the Blue Jays and raptors constantly lose. We are all owned by the same idiots! Our entire team is a bunch of over-rated bums together with some AHL-level stars. Its quite pathetic, and yet we still watch every game religiously and hope for some kind of turn around. A 2 or 3 game winning streak is huge news in Toronto because we lose that often. Big changes are needed fast, and I’m not talking about coaches or managers, I mean players. At the end of the day its players who win or lose the game, not a coach. Dear MLSE, give us Toronto fans what we deserve.

After tonights 7-0 loss against the New York Rangers, this song seems fitting.

List of players to get rid of:
Dion Phaneuf – this guy is just terrible. its an embarassment that he is wearing the C. Totally undeserved. Cant fight, cant hit anymore, cant hit the net, pretty much has nothing going for him

Mike Komisarek – another bum the leafs dont need. constantly takes penalties at bad times, doesnt use his head

Brett Lebda – I hardly even notice he is on this team unless he makes a pass through the crease or takes a penalty to blow the game

John Mitchell – somehow this guy makes the team every year and quietly makes it through the entire season without doing anything. trade him for a bucket of pucks.

Kris Versteeg – I am on the fence about Versteeg. I really didnt like him. He’s starting to pick up his game now. Before he would give up so easily, he would go for little skates when he had the puck, but other than that didnt seem to really care. We will have to see a few more games out of him

Francois Beachemin – Its time for him to retire. He makes some good plays, but he isnt nearly physical enough. also takes alot of careless penalties.

Gank Leafs win 4 in a row, Wilson wins 600th

The Toronto Maple Leafs continued their domination of the west coast with a huge win tonight over the San Jose Sharks. After coming off a win last night against the Los Angeles Kings, the Leafs again were firing on all lines. The man of the game was again James Reimer, the AHL goaltender the Leafs called up and who has since gone 4-0. Reimer stopped 40 of 42 shots to keep the Leafs in the game. The leafs managed to kill off all 5 of the penalties they recieved and Kessel scored a notable highlight reel goal. This win also came as the 600th career victory for coach Ron Wilson, getting it against the team that fired him.

Reimer is set to go back to the Marlies in the AHL this Thursday, but I say keep him until the wins stop! Toronto ends their West coast road-trip in Phoenix this Thursday.
