When you're talking about making a decision about waiving a guy and potentially permanently losing him...then future performance is precisely what you should be taking into account. I have no problem with and completely agree that riding Leighton while he's hot makes sense presently, but that doesn't mean I would choose him for the rest of the season over Boucher (who is also signed into next season, btw).

Given that Biron moved his family back up to Buffalo...I can't see him signing on to be the backup here. Of course, who knows what our starting goalie situation will be next year.
