Not to be outdone by Canucks GM Mike Gillis, who says he’s willing to keep both Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider in Vancouver next season, Leafs GM Brian Burke also says he’s willing to stick with his current goaltending tandem of James Reimer and Ben Scrivens.
“We are prepared to go forward on that basis,” Burke told ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun. “If we can upgrade at the goaltending position, and at a reasonable price, we’ll do it. But we are prepared [to go with Reimer-Scrivens]. I believe in James Reimer. He’s young, he’s athletic, I believe in this kid. If we have to start like that, we will.”
LeBrun believes the Leafs are interested in acquiring Luongo, but not for a “high-level asset.”
In honor of the game of chicken Gillis and Burke are playing, here’s a clip from Footloose.
