Marlene Reimer is admittedly concerned about her son's health.
"We're beginning to be a little more concerned than we were at first," the mother of Maple Leafs goaltender James Reimer told the Toronto Star on Thursday.
"At first, when (the Maple Leafs) said it was just going to be a day-to-day whiplash kind of thing, you just wait it out. But definitely our concerns are getting a little stronger as time that passes. We're definitely hoping there are going to be some answers coming out of the team shortly, what they're doing or what they're planning to do."
Reimer suffered the injury after colliding with Montreal Canadiens captain Brian Gionta during their game on Oct. 22.
The 23-year-old was initially deemed to have been suffering from whiplash, but the diagnosis was then altered to concussion-like symptoms and upper-body injury.
"That's the frustrating part for us - not knowing what it is, and why they're not calling it a co...

from Rob Pizzo of TheScore, Yesterday, I posted a link to a story written by the Toronto Star’s Dave Feschuck.
The Leafs have refused to say much about the injury to James Reimer. First it was “whiplash”, then is was “concussion like symptoms”, but the fact remains that he has missed 9 games. Fans wanted answers, and Feschuck went to the person who might have some of them...
Some of you will argue it’s not very curious. It’s just plain bad. At this moment, it’s difficult for me to present a strong argument against that.
The Leafs miss the calming, steady hand of their number one guy, James Reimer. There is no question about that. Jonas Gustavsson and Ben Scrivens are simply not cutting it right now. Just take a look...
The Toronto Maple Leafs and St.Louis Blues battled it out on Thursday night in what can only be called a steal of a win for the Maple Leafs. Despite being outshot 13-5 in the second period and 17-3 in the third (40-22 overall), the Maple Leafs held on for a 3-2 shootout victory over the Blues.
If not for the heroics of rookie goaltender Ben Scrivens, who stopped 38 of 40 shots and...
I guess you could call my present state "modified panic." It's hard to be at DEFCON 1 when your team is still second in the conference and it's 14 games into season before the first time you've lost twice in a row. In fact the Leafs have the same point total this season as they did on November 27th last season, eight games later than where we presently sit...
The Maple Leafs have not been acting like a team that is at the top of the Eastern Conference standing, after losing two consecutive home games to Boston and Florida by a combined score of 12-1. The club is ranked 28th in the league with 51 goals against, they have lost their projected top first line center for the second time in less than two months to injury, another of their...
For better or for worse, the value of a good goalie cannot be underestimated. Craig Custance and Pierre LeBrun look at which teams are flourishing and foundering because of their netminders.
Custance: ... So if you had to pick one—who makes the playoffs this year, Florida or Toronto?
LeBrun: Well, I picked neither to make it in September, so why bother changing my mind now...

Phil Kessel scored the lone shootout goal for Toronto, and Ben Scrivens stopped all three St. Louis shooters in the Maple Leafs' 3-2 victory over the Blues on Thursday night.
The Toronto Maple Leafs and St. Louis Blues faceoff tonight for what should be an entertaining game.
Both teams enter tonight’s tilt with a 5-5-0 record in their past ten games and both teams have a number of question marks.
For Toronto, the goaltending situation has gone from good with James Reimer between the pipes to the unknown with the likes of Jonas “nobody is calling me...
