08:25 AM ET 09.11 | Brian Burke issued a "no comment" Monday when asked some specific questions about a work stoppage, but he had a lot to say when asked about whether the Maple Leafs head into camp expecting James Reimer to be the starting goaltender. "We believe in James Reimer. We have said, from the get-go, that if we get an opportunity to upgrade at the goaltending position, we're going to do it. That's still the case. But it's not a frantic search for a goaltender. We believe in James Reimer. This is a guy that, last year, started off great and then got run from the side and struggled with injury trouble. ... We believe there's no reason that he can't be 'the guy.' And we think Ben Scrivens put himself squarely in the hunt with his year."

Craptimus Reim and Ben Sievens as their dynamic duo ?? If this were a comic it would basically be a comic about 2 Robins...this franchise needs a Batman.

"No comment?"

Remember September 10th, 2012 kids. It'll be the only time in history this ever happens.

Based on the criteria I'm not surprised.

Apparently, Justin Tuck is irked over in the football threads. Irkedness is spreading across the F&N landscape!

Just something I found while looking for something else.

BTW, it's pretty funny that there isn't even going to be hockey but we've got a goalie controversy brewing in Toronto.
