John-Michael Liles to Maple Leafs

According to the good folks at Sports Club Stats the Toronto Maple Leafs have approximately a 5 percent chance of making the playoffs.  Yeah, pretty bleak… five out of one hundred times this Leafs team will make the big dance.  If James Reimer doesn’t continue to play like a Vezina trophy candidate I think we can safely say the Leafs stand no chance at all.

James Reimer (prior to Saturday’s game) has played in 17 games, sports a 10-4-2 record to go along with a sparkling 2.24 GAA and a shiny .930 save percentage.  In short, he has played like one of the top goaltenders in hockey during his short stretch as the Maple Leafs number one option.  His current stats would rank him in sole possession of fifth in the NHL in GAA and second in save percentage (behind only Tim Thomas).
