Don Cherry says Leafs are throwing Reimer 'to the wolves'

Don Cherry has a theory about the goaltending situation in Toronto. 

The never bashful Coach's Corner commentator said on his Hockey Night in Canada segment Saturday night he thinks the Leafs are throwing James Reimer "to the wolves." 

Cherry said while he doesn't want people to misinterpret his opinion, he thinks Toronto has played Reimer in some less favourable situations over the course of the season while protecting its newer asset Jonathan Bernier. 

Grapes also said that wasn't a bad thing necessarily and that it's happened before in the NHL, adding "it's a cruel world."
