I think thats a positive thing, not a negative.


I liked Leighton's game after the long layoff. I thought he fought the puck a little early, but he also had some real nice saves on the few point shots that got through. He didn't see some of them through traffic, but he was square and sound and stopped them. He did overplay a little on the only mistake that cost him. If nothing else he showed me that he can jump in there on short notice. I'm probably more confident with Leighton than Boucher ATM.
