Leighton has had one nice 10 game stretch in his career and that was recently.
He hit his career high in wins this year with 8.
He is a below average backup.
Do I think Emery is elite? of course not but you dont need elite goaltending to go deep in the playoffs and win a Cup. See Osgood. See Ward. I dont think MAF is elite either but I would put him ahead of Osgood and probably Ward.

So say the Flyers lose in round 1. But Emery has a GAA under 2 and a .925 save percentage.
Do you give him the money he wants? Or do you move on and blame him for not winning a Cup like people did with Biron last year.
