The Toronto Maple Leafs have just announced that they have extended goalie James Reimer for two years. I know, terrible, right?
Of course, all the firemen on Twitter were pretending like this was a good thing. Luckily, Sportsnet’s Damien Cox was right on cue with a piping hot take to remind us all how truly terrible this deal is:
Cox knows the truth — those coaches and front office guys didn’t get nixed because they horribly mismanaged the team over he course of years. Nope, it was all because Reimer couldn’t stop the puck while the indisputable best team in hockey skated in front of him.
This signing, when paired with the hiring of Kyle Dubas, is just another sign that dark days are ahead for the Leafs.
