The Goalie Battle In Toronto

from Damien Cox of The Spin at the Toronto Star,

It's a fascinating competition, and may well be so for a few seasons. This being Toronto, there will be those who suggest that the moment one goalie appears to have a leg up on the other, they should trade the backup for other assets.

I'd stick with two for a while. Maybe a long while.

This position has been unstable for the Leafs since Ed Belfour left town. If it takes two to stabilize it, rather than finding some older guy somewhere as a bandaid, there's nothing wrong with that.

But to me, Reimer's the starter until Bernier demonstrates he should be. And that will take at least half-a-season. Maybe more.
