It's not as if Legace wouldn't be there next week if need be.
Because I've seen them all play and based that opinion on observation not just stat lines. They are looking for someone to step up for a period of time while Ward is out and Legace best fills that kind of role. Leighton is a journeyman who simply isn't consistent enough and Peters isn't ready. Who cares about their AHL stats over a relatively few games? Leighton tore up the AHL a couple of seasons ago and has major holes in his game still at the NHL level. Again, I see Peters as an NHL journeyman at best.
