Jim Carey

Is Optimus Reim not taking Burke's advice?

Burke famously told his young goalie:
Jim Carey is one. Steve Penney is one. What I said to James Reimer is ‘Google both of those guys and make sure you’re not one of them.’

Well, Jim Carey came up for Washington in 1995 and went 28-16-8 - a little Reimerish, no? (Reimer was 20-10 last year)

The next year, Carey won the Vezina. Something Reimer should be careful not to repeat lest he be like Carey. In fact, Carey won his first 4 games after his first partial season.

Hopefully for Leaf fans, Reimer won't follow in Jim's footsteps.
