A day after taking to Twitter to call out the Toronto Maple Leafs, James Reimers age
A day after taking to Twitter to call out the Toronto Maple Leafs, James Reimers agent has clarified his remarks. Discount NBA Jerseys . Ray Petkau issued the following statement pertaining to a Tuesday night tweet, clarifying that it was not a direct response to Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle. "The tweet I sent out last night, while inadvertently relevant to other comments made was not a response to post game comments from Randy Carlyle or James Reimer," Petaku said in a statement. "I didnt hear those interviews until later." Petaku was clarifying his tweet from Tuesday night following the Leafs 3-2 loss to the Detroit Red Wings that read: "As is customary in Toronto, when your team plays poor defensively game after game you blame your goalie." The tweet was believed by some to be a reaction to Carlyles post-game comments in which he labeled Reimers performance in Detroit as being "just okay." Petakus remarks came after Reimer has suddenly been thrust back into the Leafs starting role with Jonathan Bernier nursing a groin strain. In the last three games - including the Mar. 14 test against the Los Angeles Kings that saw Bernier go down - the team has gone 1-2. Reimer has posted a .936 save percentage over those three games, allowing six goals total. That stretch includes two perfect periods to finish off the victory over the Kings where Reimer stopped 31 shots in 40 minutes. "Obviously this has been a trying season for James but those are issues that we will deal with in the off-season," Petakus statement continued. "Twitter is not the place for that but the timing of my tweet necessitated further comment under these circumstances." "Having the confidence of teammates, coaching staff and a team of supporters around them is imperative for a goalies success, especially in a big hockey market. I will always have my clients back." Reimer is in the final year of a three-year deal he signed with the Leafs prior to the 2011-12 season worth an average annual value of $1.8 million. He is eligible to become a restricted free agent on July 1. In 29 games with the Leafs this season, Reimer is 11-10-1 with a .913 save percentage and a 3.22 goals-against average. He started 33 games for the Leafs in the lockout-shortened 2012-13 season, posting a 2.46 GAA and a .924 save percentage. Clearance NBA Jerseys . - For years William Gay kept quiet.
