It's the Phantoms for him, and that's the right decision. He can play the vast majority of games there (especially as Backlund continues to ease back in after his injury) and adjust.
Boosh becoming our starter means Leighton has well and truly lost whatever magic he bottled up last season, and that means trouble. I like Boosh and think he really wasn't given a fair shot last year (he had a long stretch of games where he was playing very well and losing games in which he had no goal support whatsoever), but if he takes the reins in net it's likely because something's gone wrong. And I'm not sure he can hold onto them for that long, either.
No, I meant down the road in the season. I agreed that Bob should start some AHL games first. Sorry, I should include details in every post. I don't think Leighton's luck will continue, unfortunately. Kudos to him for getting a decent contract for himself lol. It's sad, I personally like the guy. But I don't feel like he'll carry it over to this season. It's only preseason, we'll see what happens.
