That's such a cop out. Again, I'm not saying that he is a great goalie or anything like that. But he played well last season, regardless of who was in front him. Yes, it obviously helped having one of the best defenses out there, but for most of the year Boucher was terrible behind that very same defense, yet everyone seems to favor Boosh over Leighton. Leighton played well last season and in the playoffs. When he gets back from injury I expect him to be the starter and play the same. He won't win any awards, but he's a solid goalie.
