James Reimer: 3 Predictions for Toronto Maple Leafs Netminder in 2013

“The Toronto Maple Leafs have their goaltender of the future.” That was the sentiment of Maple Leafs fans after the 2010-11 season. After an injury-filled 2011-12 season, the attitude has changed in some fans' minds to: “We need a new goaltender.”

These views are both referring to the pride of Morweena, Manitoba, James Reimer.

In 37 games in the 2010-11 season, Reimer achieved 20 wins, a .921 save percentage and a 2.60 goals-against average. In 34 games in 2011-12, he had only 14 wins, a .900 save percentage and a 3.10 goals-against average.

What will happen this year?

That question depends on several factors. Will Reimer return to his 2010-11 form? Is he over his concussion/neck issues?

All these questions will be answered this season—that is, if there is a season.
