We SHREDDED Niemi. Whether Chicago had better skaters or not, adequate -- just ADEQUATE -- goaltending from our side and we win that series. But, no, as predicted when Leighton saw a real offense in a series they opened him up like a tin can.

Leighton will not backstop a team to the Stanley Cup. Too many holes in his game that are easy to pick apart with scouting and a game plan. That was the same situation with Cechmanek, who was a much better goalie than Leighton.
