If he does not have to pass through waivers, let him refine his game in the A. Him getting shelled, regardless of how well the team is playing, does us no good.
And, quite frankly, I see Leighton getting hurt again, soon.
I honestly think Bob is struggling under Jeff Reese. I find Bob is a better goalie when he sits a bit back in his net ( Like Hank from the Rags). Several times I see him really far out of his net, whether it be a miscommunication between him and Reese. For his style he needs to play deeper in the net and rely on his speed to make the saves. I know he's not an overly big goalie, but his butterfly style isn't suited to come and challenge really far out of his net. I expect Leighton to start as early as LA but this team really seems unfocused without Prongs.
