Sabres' defenceman (and ex-Leaf) Carlo Colaiacovo suffered a "dented trachea" after a hit by Nashville's Viktor Arvidsson, during a game between the Sabres & the Predators Saturday night.

Bernier's confidence is in shambles.  It's too bad he can't go down to the Marlies for a mental conditioning stint.  He needs a string of games to try to work his problems out and unless Reimer is gone long-term he's not going to get it from Babcock.

I get the impression that Bernier doesn't care to remain a Leaf anymore.  After being signed up this year, he seems to have hit a snag and can't seem to disentangle himself from it.

Mental conditioning or not, this guy just doesn't seem to have it this year to win.  Save for some brilliant saves he's made throughout his starts, he's been largely inconsistent and unfocused.  What gives?

According to Jon Morosi of FoxSports, he calls David Price's returning to the Jays  "pretty remote."  He claims it has nothing to do with Price's dislike of the team, city, or organization, just that other teams may represent a more comfortable or favourable location for Price.  It will all depend of course on where Price wants his career to take him.

Toronto, according to Morosi, still remains in Price's favourite column.

Blue Jay fans, keep your fingers crossed!

Reimer leaves practice:

Feel bad for Reimer.  If he can't play on Saturday against the Caps, it could be Bernier's turn to shine.  Or maybe a Garrett Sparks could get the backup duties.

Hope Reimer returns.  The Leafs need him.

Deadline is Saturday 7PM.   All times Eastern.

Saturday Nov. 28

Cleveland's LeBron James  gets himself a place in NBA history, as James along with former NBA & Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson, are the only players in the Top 25 list to lead in assists and points.

Babcock  is intent on improving the 4-on-3:

Toronto coach Mike Babcock did not fault Reimer for the Maple Leafs falling behind 2-0 in the first period.

"They got two goals early, and in fairness to [Reimer], he had been carrying us," Babcock said. "I thought our team played hard and did a good job. We had a lull after they got two, and then we got ourselves regrouped and played hard. We had a lot of chances."

The Maple Leafs have four days off before hosting the Washington Capitals on Saturday. Babcock said he would use some of the practice time to work on the 4-on-3 power play.

"I didn't think we were dangerous 4-on-3," Babcock said. "So we'll have to fix that."

Hope the Jays sign him up.  He too brings his own unique brand of leadership and enthusiasm, being one of the Jays' leaders, along with Donaldson & Bautista, so it's important that he return.

Unless the Jays have other plans...
