When Leighton comes back, I suspect his GAA to be about 2 and his save percentage in the .920 range. Why? Because this D is amazing, and Homer made a choice to use the money to fix the 5-6 pairing and leave the goaltending as is.
Homer also said he thought Bob was close and didn't want to go longterm with a UFA goalie. Right again. He made the right decision. He stayed put and added Bobrovsky to the system just in case. Well, the backup plan became the plan and here we are......LUCKY>>>>>>>NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Do you forget that Holmgren tried to sign both Nabokov and Turco? We acquired negotiating rights to both of them
