As many of you probably already know coach Randy Carlyle has once again refused to name a true #1 goalie in Toronto. When asked point blank by the media he once again fell back on his 1A and 1B philosophy something that is not likely to appease Leafs fans. There is no question Jonathan Bernier was brought in to be, and eventually was the #1 goalie last season or is there? Bernier had a .922 save percentage while Reimer only managed a .911. When you break the stats down further however a new picture begins to emerge. Reimer's overall save percentage took a massive hit due to his .841 save percentage on the penalty kill. Bernier on the other hand managed an .881 which has less of a harsh impact on his overall totals. In fact when looking at shots form within 30 feet Reimeir is better overall than Bernier, again a large discrepency shows up when looking at the save percentages for both goalies in this category. Reimer. For whatever reason Reimeir struggled more with the long shot putting up a save percentage of only .953 to Bernier's .971. These are mistakes that can easily be worked on during an off season, and with the wave Reimer played last night at the ACC stopping all 18 shots he faced, Reimer may be looking to take that #1 spot from Bernier this season. Who would be your #1 and why? Leave us your thoughts in the comments below.
