It's just tough to argue that there is an "emergency" and Leighton is your only option.
The only "emergency" I could see, and I don't even know if this would be possible, is if somehow, on a road trip a goalie gets hurt, and last minute we need someone and Leighton happens to be in the area for something, and he's the only goalie in the organization that can make it in time. I can't see that happening though. Because Leighton would only be somewhere because of the Phantoms which means Riopel is there too, so the argument still stands.
