The Ongoing History of Optimus Reim

leafsLooking back at the 2010/11 Leafs season, I'm going to remember it as the year we discovered Optimus Reim. The Optimus Reim phenomenon has truly been something special.

As the season draws to a close, let's remember the year of Optimus Reim.

Great article by James Mirtle on the Globe and Mail web site about Reimer embracing the nickname:

The Dalai Reimer. He is the chosen one. The one the ancients spoke of in old times. The time of six. He will deliver us to the realm of lord stanley and make our nation unite in triumph, as it was in the time of six.

The Optimus Reim symbol is a symbol of hope for all of Leafs Legion.

The Habs will win tomorrow night over the Leafs. The Leafs will lose their last game to my Habs. Go Habs. Ole ole.

I agree Reimer took the Leafs to the next step for next year.

But don't forget the Leafs got Raycroft 2 years after winning the Calder & kept Pogge (over Rask) who will never ever again be an NHL goalie.

Hopefully Reimer can continue next year. Who will be the backup??

@Cheryl - the Leafs will win tomorrow guaranteed & your Habs done 1st round guaranteed also.

I haven't been this excited about a Leaf goalie since Palmateer!

James Reimer you're our only hope!
