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

One positive thing about the logjam at defense is injury potential. We were blessed with a relatively healthy top 4 last year and we probably took it for granted. With Pronger and Timonen aging, either one of them could sustain an injury that keeps them out for a while. Then, we may be glad we have Mezaros and O'Donnell to step up (and I guess Walker). Granted there were probably a million better ways to address the depth issue.
Notwithstanding, failing to address the goalie situation is inexcusable. It's been covered ad-nauseum, but whoever 6 they play are going to have extreme pressure on them not to make any mistakes, because frick and frack in net can't stop a softie. So all year in the GDT's, we are going to be on every d-man's mistake when it causes a goal, knowing Homer could have brought somebody in to potentially cover those mistakes.
So, when Carle, Coburn, Pronger and Kimmo inevitably go brain-dead on a play, it is that much more more likely to result in a goal. Seems like a recipe for disaster.
