While getting ready for tonight's games (I'm on both Leafs and Marlies duty tonight, so don't judge me if I mix up some names in the recaps), I've been doing my usual combing through Twitter and various spots on the internet, looking for what the word is on just about anything Leafs related. I'm seeing quotes from players defending James Reimer's "bad year". Articles explaining his "poor performance".

There's no doubt that Jonathan Bernier has been the better of the two. The newest addition between the pipes is undoubtedly the Leafs' MVP, which is amazing to say with Phil Kessel near the top of NHL scoring. But Reimer hasn't been bad. Far from it.

You know, despite him being a friend and a co-worker on this website, I don't actually listen to Steve Dangle's Podcast all that often. It's very good, Adam and Chris make it that much better, but I just don't. It's nothing personal; I stopped regularly listening to almost any Podcasting efforts once I switched away from using an iPod/iPhone (Android is awesome, but I miss syncing to iTunes). 

If I do listen, it's because I can't sleep and need some background noise, but don't want to listen to music. Last night was one of those nights, and I had Sunday's episode on. One point struck a nerve. So, Adam - I'm calling you out.

One of these Stevens is an athlete. The other is a blogger. CAN YOU GUESS WHO IS WHAT?

The bad news is that the Leafs are playing a divisional rival who's close in the standings on the second half of a back-to-back. The good news is that that Leafs are finally back at the ACC for the first time since March 8th.

Awaiting them there is Steven Stamkos, ready to take on the Leafs for the first time as Tampa Bay Lightning captain.

The Toronto Maple Leafs just lost to the Detroit Red Wings in a game where James Reimer saved three pucks, but allowed three to go past him. Two quotes and two tweets later, and everybody is in a state of mini-panic. Let's break some statements down.
