Perhaps a surprise to some, but up until the last 8 minutes of game 7, Reimer went toe to toe with Rask and was winning.  I haven’t been sold on him as an elite #1, and still am not, but the combination with Bernier should keep the Leafs in the game on most nights.  I think Bernier will become the starter, but there won’t be much of a drop-off when Reimer gets the call.
