"He’s a great guy. He’ s funny, he’s fun to be around. He probably doesn’t seem too talkative around most people, but I think once you get to know him a bit and he gets comfortable around you, he’s a great guy to be friends with." - Bozak on Kessel

"I learnt a lot of things. Lot of it is just trying to stay level headed through adversity and through, you know, the ups and downs. Or the major ups and downs of this season. I think I learnt that trying to find that even ground, that's important. Not getting caught up in how you feel or how you think you're playing. [...] I mean, I've learnt a lot and that's kind of just the tip of the iceberg but... It's been a good season for learning." - James Reimer

Carlyle is a fucking asshole pass it on 

actually though look what he did to Reimer

We’re about to witness the (likely) end of James Reimer’s time in Toronto.

Although it’s unfortunate to see his time in Toronto is ending on a sour note, we can collectively agree that the way he is leaving will NOT be the way we remember him, as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs.  Much like Potvin (which I’ve related to Reimer in a previous article), Reimer’s time will be seen largely in a positive light.  We will remember him for his unlikely rise to fame and prominence in the NHL.  That he turned a sub-par Leafs team into a team that challenged for a playoff spot when most predicted Toronto would be in the bottom 5 of the league.  We will remember him as the goalie who broke Toronto’s playoff drought, and carried a down-and-out Leafs team to force Game 7 against a much better Boston Bruins.

But perhaps most of all, we will see James Reimer as the humble goalie from a smalltown in Manitoba.  Whos  devout religious-beliefs and humble nature, who always had a smile made him Toronto’s darling.  The city of Toronto fell in love with James Reimer.  He was, in all counts, the exact opposite of the ravenous Toronto media and fanbase.  He wasn’t snarky like Ron Wilson, Brian Burke, or Randy Carlyle.  He willingly shouldered the blame for every goal and for every loss.  His held was held low in the infamous Game 7 collapse.  He was nearly inconsolable.  

But I will remember James Reimer for the way he played the game.  It wasn’t text book.  It was far from perfect.  But he embodied what every goalie SHOULD be.  He was a battler.  He caread.  He was responsible.  

James Reimer will be remembered for the way he celebrated his wins. With a look up to the ghosts of Toronto lore hanging in the rafters, and beyond to the heavens.  His held up high proving his dominance while giving thanks for having the opportunity, to be a goaltender for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

WOW BYE I’M CRYING

The Toronto Maple Leafs’ 2013-2014 season came in like a lion but went out like a lamb. It showed signs of promise, but disappointed overall. Another missed playoffs, another year of wondering what could have been. However, the games will continue. Fans will once again come out, wearing their maple leafs loud and proud, and join together to form a single, uniform chant: “Go Leafs Go!” The excitement, the passion, the pure exhilaration will once again be back. Now you ask; how can the team with the longest active Cup drought still be so passionate? The answer is simple: we are the Toronto Maple Leafs, and we will always believe.

I would just like to say that James Reimer was phenomenal this season when the rest of the team played like absolute garbage.
Reimer was treated horribly by this team and ‘fans’
He does not deserve this. 
I want him to go to a team who will give him credit where it is due and appreciate his dedication, passion and skill. 
I want him to go a to a team whose fans can truly appreciate him and support him 100% unlike certain leafs fans out there.
