While I never thought Leighton was a good goalie, I did appreciate the fact that our team seemed to play better in front of him and we won with him in net. To borrow the cliche, he essentially saved our season.
However, his performance in the Finals, even if it was semi-expected, has left an incredibly bad taste in my mouth for him and then him LYING to our front office about his injury just to get a paycheck has solidified him as public enemy number 1 to me.
I, honestly, was hoping he would get one more NHL game to get EMBARRASSED in to negate any plausibility of him ever returning to our team.
As it stands now I am petrified that Holmgren views this as nothing more than a conditioning stint and I will be forced to watch this un-athletic ******* stand still in the crease and spread his legs every time a puck comes at him once again.
