You're mistaking something for something entirely different. Just because I said our defense have the ability to make up for Leighton's shortcomings, which it did, does not mean Leighton is a viable long-term solution in net.

Is that clear enough for you?
Because as most of us were saying the entire time, we played a team we own, and then practically the 2 worst offensive teams in the league.

As soon as we played a team with a modicum of offensive talent, Leighton got burned and obviously the Flyers D couldn't come close to carrying him there.

The whole argument is pointless though.

We were right, you were wrong, you refuse to admit you were wrong. I'm sure the same scenario will play out when Nodl busts or Ericsson busts or etc.

End of story.
