Reimer is such a good guy.  Normally I don't care about players on other teams but I always hope for the best for this guy.

Did not expect him to get anything more than a three-year deal.  Good on him.

Sounds all good for the Panthers and Reimer:

Reimer provides a good safety net for that as a backup option and someone that can ease the burden. His even-strength save percentage last season was the third best mark in the league at .940, although when you adjust for the quality faced it was more towards the middle of the pack. Over the last three years that save percentage is .925, good for 24th in the league – essentially a below average starter. The price to be a backup is large, but Reimer will be a very good one.

He's going to get a pretty extended look with Luongo out for the start of the season recovering from surgery. It'll be interesting to see how he fares behind Eckblad, Yandle, and Demers.
