That's the only acceptable situation here though.
Yeah I'd be fine with any of those combinations too. But if we had waited it out Leighton could have been had for less. There's such a glut of guys as good as if not better than Leighton out there there's no way he would have been signed. Look at last year when Biron had to settle for 1 mill. for one year with the Islanders. If Holmgren had just sat tight for another 2 days we probably could have had him for half a mill. less of a cap hit.
Homer just seems like he's in panic mode. He doesn't want to wait until July 1st to get things done even though trying to sign these goalies before they get out onto the market and see just how low their value really is is stupid.
