One needs an operation. The other could decide, if he hasn’t already, that he needs a new address. The off-season for the Maple Leafs’ goaltenders will take divergent paths, but at least Jonathan Bernier, who will have sports hernia surgery on Wednesday, knows where he will be when the Leafs open training camp in September. James Reimer? Not so much. “I have no idea, to tell you the truth,” said Reimer, who will be a restricted free agent, when he was asked by the Toronto Sun whether he thinks he will be back with the Leafs in 2014-15. “The hockey world is a crazy place. This has been my team and I have really enjoyed it, and it has been a huge blessing. I always dreamed this would be the organization that I stay with my whole career, so we will see what happens.” Bernier, acquired in a trade with the Los Angeles Kings last June, has no such uncertainty. He nailed down the No. 1 job with a season-long performance that saw him finish with a .923 save percentage, good for eighth in the National Hockey League.
Leafs' Bernier will be back, what about Reimer?
