General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs announced on June 7, 2011 that the Leafs Rookie goaltender has agreed to a three year contract worth $5.4 million (USD). Reimer was set to become a restricted free agent on July 1st. This should settle who will be starting for the Maple Leafs come next season. Although it is still undetermined whether GS Giguere will resign with the team as a veteran backup for the rookie phenom the general consensus is that he will test the free agency market to see if he can start elsewhere.
This leaves Reimer as starter with Gustavsson (who is signed for one more year) as a backup. James reimer had 20 wins and 10 loses last season. Could he be the goaltender to finally bring the Leafs deep into the Stanley cup playoffs? Only time will tell!
