If people around here are naive enough to think that Leighton suddenly flipped a switch and learned how to become Patrick ParentBrodeuRoyChuk because he finally got a shot, I feel okay in saying that Niitty may yet prove he's capable.
I like Niitty, but every time we handed him the reigns he ****ed up. Anytime Biron struggled, Niitty couldn;t play a good game. Esche sucked? so did Niitty.

Maybe he is over that hump now,
