Maple Leafs goalie James Reimer skating with locked-out Vancouver Canucks has generated trade rumors on Twitter.
VANCOUVER SUN: Brad Ziemer reports the sighting of Toronto Maple Leafs goalie James Reimer skating with some locked-out Vancouver Canucks on Monday at UBC’s Father Bauer Arena apparently sparked some speculation on Twitter he could be dealt from the Leafs to the Canucks, perhaps in a swap for Roberto Luongo. The truth, however, is far less sexy: he’s in Vancouver visiting his in-laws, and is spending a week or so skating with those locked-out Canucks, as well as several other locked-out player from other NHL teams.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Once the lockout ends, I wouldn’t be surprised to see this rumor resurface, but obviously there isn’t anything to it. I will go so far to say that, if the Leafs and Canucks were to swing a deal which would send Roberto Luongo to Toronto, it wouldn’t surprise me if Reimer were part of it. That being said, I’m certainly not expecting it to happen.
