Ok, the question has got to be asked (Leighton)...

He has done everything asked of him and beyond. Leights has been PHENOMENAL for us, being a key factor in the Boston series (we don't win if Backlund goes in). He continues to get better the more he plays.
That being said...no, I don't start him next year. Doubt I'd resign him. I really really hope that he gets a starting job somewhere...he's earned it.
But I just don't think he is capable of being a true No.1 because a) injury prone, and b) sooner or later (because of our injury curse) at some point Timonen or Pronger will get hurt, and he'll be exposed.
I'm a big advocate for Carey Price, I think behind the Flyers D he'll really develop and become a stud, so that after Kimmo/Pronger are gone he'll be able to win games for us.
Again, Leights has earned a starting job, but I want it to be with another team, I want a legit starter. Knowing the Flyers though, he'll be back.
