Especially given our lack of most useful draft picks for such trades (Go Homer!). That being said, the Boucher I would expect to see (and we've seen for the most part here) can keep you in games and afloat. The Leighton I would expect to see (and have not seen here to this point) can't keep you in games and afloat. So, that's a big factor here...I've seen enough of Leighton previously, and am unimpressed with him enough still that I just don't trust him...at all.

And, right, I wouldn't expect to accomplish much of anything with Boucher...but the guy has proven himself an adequate NHL goalie, which is something Leighton hasn't done to this point in his career.

Lets hope Emery comes back, finds his solid early season form, and enjoys a healthy rest of the year.
