And there is one more thing that maybe we should consider... The team has not played a solid and defensively tight game recently, and quite frankly, discipline has not been there and they have not played Flyers type hockey... It is not beyond a thinking coach's bag of tricks to use a jarring ploy to get the players back on track and play a tight game.
Can Lavy be putting Leighton in to have them come together with a common cause to concentrate and play disciplined game? It is easy to say that professionals should feel shame from a bad outing... and they should rally by themselves and come up with a good game... but that play didn't happen after they had their collective ***** handed to them against Florida as they were unprepared as they admit they were last night.
Maybe I'm reaching to suggest that Lavy may believe this is the perfect time to get Leighton back in for those reasons... but maybe it should be seriously considered. Am I reading too much into this, or is it much like when a goalie gets yanked mid game even if it is not his fault, but rather is to wake up the team in front of him?
