I've thought about that too, and I can see what you're saying...at the same time, what else are Laviolette and Richards going to say? Pronger does and says what he wants because he's Chris Pronger, but Richards isn't the kind of guy who would speak against a teammate. I mean, when people were clamoring about him being named captain, he said the right things out of respect to Smith. Could be the same thing here.
I just cannot believe that the people who are perfectly comfortable with Leighton as a goalie (if we're to believe what they say) actually get paid to run teams.
