I don't disagree with any of this, but would note that Cory Schneider was drafted by Vancouver, not New Jersey.

Well, there you go.

Also, it is worth saying that the Leafs probably got the least actual goaltending out of their 2 star goalie picks of anyone.
I wouldn't. Edmonton. Boston to name a few. Potvin was outstanding for the Leafs.

Yeah yeah I get it. My assessment was wrong.

Reimer is fine as a middle of the pack goalie. But he?s no star.
No but he's still a solid backup NHL goalie. If we're going just stars then Boston hasn't drafted 1 in 30 years.

I wouldn't. Edmonton. Boston to name a few. Potvin was outstanding for the Leafs.

It's interesting. I put the number of "star" seasons at 300 and goalies who had them at 80 or 90 but I wonder what the real numbers would be. Reimer's an interesting example of someone who had a season you could probably call a "Star" season(playing 2/3's of his team's games, top 10 in SV%) but obviously in a weird situation of a lockout shortened year.

I think his best years were squandered on truly atrocious Leafs teams. I wonder what he'd look like when he was 26 on a good team. I find it actually kind of remarkable he put up the numbers he did over the years. Apart from the Sharks and MAYBE Carolina this year he's basically been playing for bottom tier teams.

That's pretty decent goaltending over the past 8 seasons.

He's in the last year of his $3.4m AAV 5 year deal.

Reims has always been a good goaltender. But several times with the Leafs when he was relied on to play more than 35 games in a season he got injured. Solid backup/platoon netminder. Anything beyond that he can't provide. A true number-one can be called upon to workhorse, play up to 60 games at a high standard. Freddie has done this since he's been here with high save%, total saves, and, up until last year, GAA (overall team weirdness and crippling D injuries playing a part in the dip). I think we've gotten great value at $5-million for a guy playing behind, let's be honest, not one of the stronger defensive teams in the league. Put Freddie on a lights out defensive club he'd be putting up Brodeur-like numbers.
