Leafs acquire Jonathan Bernier from the LA Kings for Matt Frattin, Ben Scrivens and TOR 2nd round pick in either the 2014 or 2015 NHL Draft

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=426131

 

 

One team out of the Luongo picture.

 

...but what about Reimer??!!

 

Goalie controversy to be central focus of this year's Leafs woes?

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

Wow. Bad trade for both teams. What does Reimer have to do to be considered the #1 guy?! What's the point of trading for Bernier when you have a #1 guy? Kings got robbed too. Bernier should have went NJ, Calgary, or somewhere where he'd be THE (after Marty retires for NJ) guy. Watch Toronto ruin both of their goaltenders.

Good trade. Frattin is a bit of a wild card but has good potential. Always liked his scoring ability.

 

Him plus a 2nd is very fair. Never really liked Scrivens.

I thought for sure the Wild were gonna get Bernier.

 

Really surprised that the Leafs landed Bernier.

 

Some goaltending controversy maybe in Toronto indeed.

I doubt the Wild could justify giving up much in terms of picks/prospects after what they gave up for Pominville. 

 

Reimer is obviously a bit more established but by no means proven. They'll be a good combo and generate some great competition at that position.

 

One of them is bound to elevate their game to upper-tier status in the next few years.

I'm sure that's what the Leaf's organization and fans are thinking.

 

Good we'll be seeing both of them a lot very soon.

Wow. Little early for that I think. With Phaneuf and Kessel leading the way?! Even if Kadri lights it up and Bernier is good, I highly doubt they are even close.

I got a hundo on them at 45 to 1. Just like Chicago/Rangers/Detroit and almost Montreal now, its been to long. The league seems to give the little nudges (refs) to the teams that havent won in a while. You can blow them off and say they dont matter, but a penalty shot vs a 2 minute penalty can cause a game that possibly would have been tied at the end of regulation to turn into a one goal loss. 6 power plays vs. 2 power plays can completely take away one team's 5 on 5 advantage. Officiating is HUGE in a Stanley Cup run. I think Bettman will see to it that Toronto gets what they need (if anything) next year.

Where does Frattin fit in with Los Angeles? Will he take Penner's spot if he bails?

Also, are the Leafs moving Frattin anticipating bringing Clarkson in?

I'm sure Leafs management and their fans would love that. They always can bring back MaCarthur if they don't land Clarkson. Assuming he's still around...

I saw the Leafs play the Sens when they were in town this year and Reimer looked like a good little goalie. I remember when the Leafs always seemed to have rock star goalie's that they piggy backed on and we used to pick them up after they had been shell shocked and fried... Poor Reimer and poor Bernier they'll have to compete for a spot on the Toronto Titanic

Honestly, I'm not sure about this move for the Leafs. Scrivens is spare parts, but I think Frattin's got a lot of offensive potential. The bigger issue is obviously the goalie controversy it creates. It's gotta be pretty deflating for Reimer to see someone brought in like that.

I live in Toronto and watch quite a bit of the Leafs. They are no where near contending seriously for the cup for awhile.
