Are you comfortable with Leighton and Boucher duo 2010-11?

If it doesn't work out, and Turco has already signed somewhere... we're going to be good and proper *ed if Leighton/Boucher come out of the gate and play like their actual talent level, not what they showed at times last year (I think people forget that prior to his play against the Devs, Boucher was very much a backup when he was out there and returned to that form against the Bruins).
Maybe some other moves are going to be made, but we don't have a ton of assets to trade, and we won't have a ton of cap space once we get to the season (I don't think teams are going to be jumping to dump cheapish goalies that are good enough that you'd want them starting games for you on a regular basis).
That's what is so *ing stupid about what Holmgren has done here. Your 3rd pairing D doesn't need to be set in the summer... you can figure it out during the season, those guys are always available as the season progresses. Goalie... you need to have that **** locked down.
