He deserves a chance. He's such a great guy. What a great story.
Is this really the rationale we want governing our hockey moves? "You know what? Michael Leighton has been a below average goalie his entire career, but he played well for 20 games in the regular season and 8 games in the playoffs, so letís stake our entire season on his ability to play 50+ games over his head."
Read over that. Let the ridiculousness of that sink in. Then add to it that we could have Marty Turco -- a guy who has played in over 500 NHL games with a .911 and 2.31 -- for probably $2 - 2.5 million, but we're not going to do that/can't do it because our GM has the patience of a 4 year old at Christmas.
Screw Turco. We should go get Patrick Roy. He has much better career numbers then Turco. The last time either of them were any good was the same season.
